Example SVG saved by the editor (drawing/large file)
Example SVG saved by the editor (handwriting/smaller file)
What still needs to be done
Add to the mobile app
• Clicking 'Attach' should give an option to draw an image.
• Clicking (double-clicking?) SVGs embedded in notes should open the image editor.
• Save SVGs as image assets/load from SVGs embedded as image assets.
Loading/saving to/from SVGs (as text data, not connected to Joplin yet)
Insert text/geometric shapes
Add icons for save, undo, redo.
Strokes can sometimes flash if drawn slowly
Resizing/moving a large number of strokes can be very slow.
Currently, the editor loads/saves SVGs. This is primarily because the note viewer can already display SVG images. Additionally, because SVGs are vector images, users can save images/diagrams without loss of data.
Clicking (double-clicking?) SVGs embedded in notes should open the image editor.
Definitely double clicking imo, I already have some issues with Joplin jumping to other notes if I click links accidentally while scrolling, having an editor open if the same happened to an image would be very annoying....
Could you also add an option to save the SVG as an external image too? (Maybe also as PNG, etc?) I'm aware Joplin isn't a drawing app but very often when I make a little picture like that, I'm both saving it to a note and sending it to someone else. Being able to do all of that in Joplin would be very nice!
Thanks again for all your hard work! This has been a long awaited feature and your work so far looks very good!
It's not painful, but many people have problems with keeping a steady pressure for the required period of time. The same goes for those with shaky hands. However, double click isn't necessary any better, as it's usually affected by the same problems. That's why, for example, there's usually a setting in desktop operating systems to open files with a single click, etc.
The only really accessible solution is probably to have some kind of a menu always visible, e.g. 3 dots in a corner of the image that can be clicked to expand.
