Description Regina Henschel 2017-01-31 14:09:47 UTC
Take a presentation, select some objects and export them to svg. Make sure "Selection" is checked. You will get a file with a line similar to
<svg version="1.2" viewBox="5061 3947 10042 9212" preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid" ...

This <svg> element has no width and height attribute. That is very bad, when such image is inserted in a text document. A browser will use the window size as viewport, but LibreOffice does not have this possibility. It imports the image in a huge size, in the example above it has 265,72cm × 243,76cm.

Expected behavior: Width and height are set to the size of the original bounding box.

If you export from Draw, then width and height are set as expected.
