- Property Summary Icon-O-Matic vector point limit → Quier Icon-O-Matic vector point limit
v2 v8 1 It seems Icon-O-Matic has an artificial vector point limit. Converting a PNG to an SVG, then trying to import it into Icon-O-Matic results in it dropping points in paths when saving (even though Icon-O-Matic seems content with the image) 1 hvif has a limitation of 256 nodes per path, 256 paths, etc. 2 Icon-O-Matic happily imports svg vectors outside of these constraints. 2 3 4 3 5 4 This can result in lost work. 6 Since hvif is working as intended, lets try to provide the following feedback: 5 7 6 EDIT: Occurs for HVIF saves only. I thought native saves encountered it as well... but I was mistaken. This could be a limitation of the HVIF format? 8 1) When importing an svg with more than 256 nodes per path, throw a warning dialog about limitations in the hvif format. 7 9 8 Solutions: 9 * Fix artificial limit in saving 10 * Provide an alert when creating more vector points in path than supported. 10 2) When exporting a vector as an hvif with more than 256 nodes per path, throw an error. "Paths with more than 256 nodes detected, path nodes will be truncated" 11 12 While Icon-O-Matic does support > 256 points, the end goal is generally to produce an hvif. 13 14 From a UX experience, placing a warning on import provides a better chance to catch these issues early and warn users to produce better svg graphics before they "work" on their final icons. 15 16 "Nobody likes to have to redo stuff"
