Troubleshooting Issues

Whether new to SVG or an experienced developer, you will likely encounter some interesting quirks while developing SVG content. These quirks may be the result of various issues that may not be visible upon first glance. Before throwing your hands in the air in defeat, try and determine the possible cause of the issue by asking the following questions:

  • Is the problem simply a limitation of the SVG specification? SVG was created to handle specific problems, not every problem. You should double check the specification to see if what you're attempting is even possible.

  • Is the problem related to the viewer you are using? Most viewers do not currently have support for the entire W3C recommendation. First, check to see if you're using the latest release of the vendor's viewer. Second, check your vendor's release notes for your particular viewer. Either the viewer may not officially support the feature you are looking for, or you may have found a bug.

  • Is the problem related to third-party software? Though the SVG recommendation and certain viewers may technically support your desired effects, third-party software may get in the way. For instance, not every browser has feature parity, and viewers may be limited not by their own technology but rather another's. Again, check your viewer vendor's release notes or FAQs to see if the issue is documented.
