Description Peter 2023-11-29 05:39:09 UTC
I imported a SVG file (the source does not seem to matter, though this one was created with MS Office) into a writer document. Export the writer to PDF. The svg image is microscopic in the PDF file.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Import & size svg image
2. export to pdf
3. view the pdf

Actual Results:
svg is tiny in the pdf file.

Expected Results:
svg image should be the same size as displayed in the write window

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
After restarting in safe mode, the image was less microscopic, but still tiny.

Thanks for the report. This should be fixed in more recent version of LibreOffice (say 7.6.3)

If no fix was identified, let's close as "works for me".
Could be related to Patrick's work for bug 157680.
