SVG icons instead of PNG icons
« on: 29.06.2020 19:10:28 »
Hi,

Is it possible to use SVG's for the files and category icons, rather than PNG's?

If so, please advise.

Thanks

Hi
The icon software is basically predicated on the use of png files. SVG files are intrinsically much more complex being vector type, and much smoother.there are several free web based svg to png converter.
Icons are generally small and not really showing details.I am curious why you want to use svg for such generally small images.  At the end of the day it is down to the pixel size on the screen!

Hello,

i have the same "problem", too.

I have solved it with  the extension "EASY OUTPUT REPLACER".

I replaced with it all file-images with svg-icons and all other icons with FontAwesome.

 Example images are attached.

Hi
Looks OkIn jD3.9.1 use is made of font awsome rather than .png in many places.  Also the buttons, like Download for example, use pure css.
