SVG file embedded in HTML page as object cannot be saved via Chrome UI
Reported by jan.toso...@gmail.com, Aug 6 2012
Chrome Version : 21.0.1180.60 m OS Version: 6.1 (Windows 7) What steps will reproduce the problem? 1. Navigate the HTML page with the SVG file embedded as an object, e.g. http://drifted.in/planisphere-app/ 2. There is no context menu available when right-clicking the SVG image 3. When the complete page is saved as..., the SVG file is missing in the page resources folder. What is the expected result? There is an intuitive procedure (for non-techie users) for saving the image to the local disk. I'd prefer downloading it together with other resources into the page resources folder when the complete page is saved. What happens instead? You need to inspect the image URL in the developer console, edit the address bar and then navigate this URL. The image displayed this way can be stored without any problems via the 'Save page as...' command. In FF the file is included in the page resources folder. In MSIE9 the image is not present in this folder, but it can be saved using the context menu. It is rather an enhancement than a bug, but I don't know where is the better place to report it.

I've verified the behavior and agree with the reporter that SVG saving could be improved.

Are there any plans to improve this (i.e. to save the SVG together with other page resources)? It is requested by my users. Easiest advice seems to be switching to a different browser now :-(

Although displaying of context menu is fixed now (thanks), the core issue (3) persists (when complete page is saved, there is no SVG file in resources). In case of SVG file itself I could implement a special download button, but there are other required resources so I had to make it downloadable as a zip file, which is not very convenient to the end user. I still prefer browser way. Thanks in advance for giving it higher priority ;-)

This issue likely requires triage. The current issue owner may be inactive (i.e. hasn't fixed an issue in the last 30 days or commented in this particular issue in the last 90 days). Thanks for helping out! -Anthony
