PDF to SVG conversion – first release

36 sec read

SVG was always a promising future technology (and looked like it always would be)….

Well, its day may finally arrived as browsers now offer decent support for it. In some cases it offers a good, even better, alternative to HTML5. For example, SVG provides much better results when scaling up than HTML5 canvas.

Much of the technologies for SVG and HTML5 are very similar – CSS, font technologies, and many language similarities. So it will not be a huge surprise that as well as building a PDF to HTML5 converter, we have now added in a PDF to SVG converter as part of the package…

PDF to SVG conversion now comes as standard with our PDF to HTML5 converter and you can either use it from the existing example or there is a standalone example. Details on using it are here. This is the first release so please let us have your feedback. We cannot choose between SVG and HTML5 so we have given you the choice. What do you think?

    1. Hi Software toko,

      I’m afraid we do not have any videos on PDF to SVG conversions, however we have videos on the HTML5 Converter which can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9prbhGXfKtc and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaGBJM7ZEw0.

      You can also try out our Online PDF to SVG Converter which is free for now at http://www.idrsolutions.com/convert/, just fill in the form and submit for your free guide to converting our content and click on the SVG icon to try the SVG converter.
