2. Open print dialog with File / Print

Actual Results:
SVG image is rendered pixelated in print preview

Expected Results:
SVG image is rendered sharp in print preview

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
Issue existis on macOS at least. Other operanting systems may be affected too. Issue still existis on current revision form master.

I can't reproduce it in

Build ID: 28d844a589e52abfe62dc66b888e78665221ba28
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.19; UI render: default; VCL: x11; 
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

Does it work if you disable OpenGl ? ->

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present
Comment 5 Thorsten Wagner 2020-02-18 19:53:23 UTC
No, issue exists with and without Open GL. As it seems to be not reproducable on Linux/X11 it is an macOS-only issue maybe.

macOS 10.15.4

Comment 7 Thorsten Wagner 2021-06-07 19:07:23 UTC
Preview quality is better with LO 7.1.3 now (see screenshot attached), but there are still some text rendering issues (see red oval within screenshot for an example). The SVG image used for the preview is attached too.

Using current revision from master, LO crashes now with this SVG image.
