I dont know much about QT but I was interested to learn about how KChart uses the built in functionality of QPainter to export SVG. If it is feasible it would be really great if KStars could allow SVG too.
If it is impractical to implement then dont worry about it but I'd love to see SVG Everywhere, especially if it something already built into QT.
The code for KChart's SVG export can be found here: http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/koffice/filters/kchart/svg/
This bug has been mis-assigned. You wanted KStart, not KStars
I meant K Stars 'etoile' stellar space etc, part of Kde Edu
The star charts in Kstars look like some form of vector graphics or line drawings and KStars already includes an option to export to raster graphics formats such as PNG. I am asking if it might be possible to use the SVG support built into QPainter to also allow SVG export from Kstars.
Assigning back to kstars :)
