Description

The ExportPageSVG tool saves the current drawing page as an SVG file.

Usage

  1. Press the TechDraw ExportPageSVG.svg Export Page as SVG button.
  2. A File Save dialog will open. Select a location and file name.

Notes

  • TechDraw Hatch patterns are not exported to SVG due to a limitation in Qt4's SVG support.
  • Text positions and sizes are not correct in the exported file. Using the "system" default font in the drawing improves the size problem considerably.

Scripting

See also: TechDrawGui API and FreeCAD Scripting Basics.

The SaveSVG tool can be used in macros and from the Python console by using the following functions:

TechDrawGui.exportPageAsSvg(DrawPageObject,FilePath)

Note that the FreeCADGui module must be active to use this function.
