Hi everyone,

Unless I am missing something i just realized that I can't crop the bounding box on an SVG like you can with a PNG.

It becomes a real bear when you have a lot of object on the canvas and their bounding boxes are overlapping.

Am I missing something?

How did you create the SVG? I use artboards on Illustrator and the bounding box will have the size of the artboard. You have to make that artboard as small as possible to surround the image.

Yes i thought that was the case. that makes sense.

However I now have a new weird thing going on with that SVG. I am using that SVG as a play/pause toggle (thanks to your blog).I

I have it set to play for entire project. It works well but for some reason the button does not appear at the start of slide. it takes a fraction of a second to appear. The other buttons on slide are fine. They are overlayed on video in a non-responsive project.

Right now I am using a 2 sec. fade in on the button which is less than ideal.

Thoughts?

Same problem you can have with shapes.... seem to take more time to load than bitmap images. I suppose you are on 11.5? I am still busy exploring in depth. Fade in has always been solution, but it should't be necessary to make it that long. Did you try with a shorter duration?

Overlappiing bounding boxes is less a problem since you can have the clickable area limited to the SVG instead of the bounding box.
