Feature Request: Format >> Page >> Header/Footer (tab) - Full SVG support
Using the 'More...' button >> Background (tab) >> As 'Graphic' will allow you to import an SVG file but it saves/pdf exports as a low resolution bitmap.
Feature would be useful for:
- Professional corporate branding
- Graphic designers
- PDF export
Thank you for reporting the bug. Can you see if bug 71068 is similar to your problem so that I can mark your report as a duplicate of it? (Later bugs are generally marked as duplicates of earlier bugs).
I did have a look and clearly I wasn't typing in the right thing, apologies. I didn't even consider it to be a bug just a lacking feature.

Alex: It sounds like you're saying this is different from bug 71068, is that correct?
Status -> NEEDINFO

Sorry for the delay, you're right. SVG is supported in the body of the document and works with PDF export too.
However use of SVG in 'header/footer' results in a low resolution bitmap image both in the ods file and exported pdf. Full SVG support here would be very useful from a design and formatting perspective.
please attach testing document.

ODS Exported to PDF - SVG Test of Header, Document Body and Footer
Since 188.8.131.52 I can't send an ODS file with the header & footer using a SVG due to the following bug 89614 (https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=89614). I can however send an exported PDF of whats happening.
Please attach svg file. I tried but I doesn't see bug, probably I have not good svg example. In your pdf file is bug obvious. Thank you

Sorry, just to make sure you're trying the following:
1. Format >> Page >> Header/Footer (tab) >> More... (button) >> Background (tab) >> As: Graphic and select an SVG file
2. This step is so you can see more of the graphic: Format >> Page >> Header/Footer (tab) >> Edit (button) >> Press enter 10-15 times in 'Center' box
What would be ideal if there was a button to insert an SVG in the "Format >> Page >> Header/Footer (tab) >> Edit (button)" area

This is my first contribution here, so please excuse if I do anything inapropriate.
Don't hesitate to write me if relevant.
Just to let you know that I encouter the same problem :
I need to export invoices and quotations in PDF, including vector logos in the headers.
However, when I try to export a PDF of a Calc file including an SVG import as header background, it becomes pixels.
So it is rasterized and does not preserve the vector format of the logos.
Am I doing something wrong ?
Do I miss an option in the PDF export ?
I am using :
LibreOffice Evolution 184.108.40.206 (x64) + french language pack
Windows Seven (Integral Edition) x64 + Service Pack 1
We have also noted the same problem with LibreOffice Stable on MacOS (I am currently trying to get the details of versions).
How can I help ?

ODS with SVG image background in header, same SVG inserted to cell
Confirming. In Calc SVG image inserted as background graphic is rendered as raster for the Header. From Format -> Page -> Header: More -> Background: Graphic
The SVG, see attachment 110764 [details], was created for bug 64276 and is a corrected SVG--removing off canvas elements--of attachment 78926 [details] to same issue.
