Description Soren Harward 2020-06-29 13:00:51 UTC
When displaying a SVG that is much larger than screen size, Gwenview does not display all of the image.  Maybe only a quarter of it?

Load a SVG that is much larger than screen resolution; I'll attach a 6000×6000 demo file.

Gwenview displays only part of the image.  Zooming in and out scales the image properly, but only a part of it is displayed.  Scrolling/panning stops at the wrong place.

Full image should be displayed, with proper zooming and panning.

Linux: recent Gentoo
KDE Plasma Version: 5.19.0
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.71.0
Qt Version: 5.14.2

I'm using LXQT as my desktop environment, with kwin_x11 as the window manager.  I'm not running a full KDE/plasma environment.

Comment 2 Soren Harward 2020-06-29 13:04:03 UTC
possibly also relevant: I have a hidpi display: 24", 3840×2160, 185dpi
Comment 3 Soren Harward 2020-07-16 13:28:20 UTC
More details:

Setting QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0 shows the entire SVG, but the scaling of the image is messed up.  What gwenview thinks is 100% is more like 50%.  12pt text in image is 6pt high on screen.

Setting QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=1 results in the behavior explained above: the scaling of the image is correct (12pt looks like 12pt), but I can only scroll the middle quarter of the image.

I can confirm this behavior on

Operating System: openSUSE Tumbleweed 20210707
KDE Plasma Version: 5.22.2
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.83.0
Qt Version: 5.15.2
Kernel Version: 5.13.0-1-default (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: X11
Scaling: 2.0


`QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=1 gwenview ~/Downloads/very_large_picture.svg`


`QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0 gwenview ~/Downloads/very_large_picture.svg`

did not make any differences for me. The result was always the same. Opening the image in Inkscape however worked absolutely fine!
