|TechDraw → Insert SVG Symbol|
|Introduced in version|
|TechDraw Templates, Draft SVG|
The Symbol tool inserts an SVG file into the page. This symbol can be anything that helps annotating your drawing, and that doesn't need to be further modified.
Compass rose added to the drawing page; this symbol is available by installing the "symbols_library" addon with the Addon Manager
- Press the button
- A File Save dialog will open.
- Select a location and file name.
If the symbol appears larger than expected, use the scale property to adjust its size.
- DataScale Type for Symbols is always set to Custom at creation. This is for convenience, since symbols are almost always scaled differently from the rest of the objects on the page.
