Description Tobias Wendorff 2018-11-30 19:59:42 UTC
When using "compress" (see steps below) to convert a SVG to raster, all settings for resolutions get ignored. Seems like it's hardcoded to 96 ppi.

This might be related to #121831

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download a reference SVG: https://dev.w3.org/SVG/tools/svgweb/samples/svg-files/
2. Insert it into a Write document
3. Right click on the SVG
4. Select a high resolution, like 300 ppi

Actual Results:
Unsharp raster image.

Expected Results:
It's expected to have the SVG rasterized at the dimension and resolutions set.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
The problem occurs on all versions, which can read and display SVG files. Ghostscript, imagemagick and pstoedit have been installed and are reachable via path variable.

Thank you for reporting the bug.
it seems you're using an old version of LibreOffice.
Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice
from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.
