Summary

The svg package provides an user‑interface for automated integration of SVG graphics created with Inkscape into  documents. Therefor the capabilities provided by Inkscape—and its command line tool—are used to export the text within a SVG graphic to a separate file, which is then rendered by . The two commands \includesvg and \includeinkscape are provided as central user‑interface, which are very similar to the \includegraphics command of the graphicx package.

In addition, the package svg-extract extends the user‑interface of package svg in order to support the extraction of these graphics into independent files in different graphic formats, exactly as they are rendered within the  document. For the creation of these graphics in the well‑known formats PDF, EPS and PS, and possibly conversion tools shipped with the most distributions are used. If the graphics are required in other file formats, either ImageMagick or Ghostscript can be invoked.

  • svg-extract: enhanced support for ImageMagick
  • svg-extract: support for Ghostscript added

  • support of subfigures stopped due to the huge number of packages which deal with this topic and the large variety of implementing this functionality; naming exported graphics after their consecutive numbering can't be ensured for all variants of subfigures, so it's neglected

svg – Include and extract SVG pictures in documents

This bundle contains the two packages svg and svg-extract.

The svg package is intended for the automated integration of SVG graphics into documents. Therefore the capabilities provided by Inkscape — or more precisely its command line tool — are used to export the text within an SVG graphic to a separate file, which is then rendered by . For this purpose the two commands \includesvg and \includeinkscape are provided which are very similar to the \includegraphics command of the graphicx package.

In addition, the package svg-extract allows the extraction of these graphics into independent files in different graphic formats, exactly as it is rendered within the document, using either ImageMagick or Ghostscript.
