Anyone else have issues with SVGs and Internet Explorer?
I'm not sure why this is happening, but in Windows with IE11, when I load my Captivate 2019 SCORM 1.2 ZIP to SCORM cloud, the SVGs don't show up. All Mac browsers and every other browser on Windows is fine. I can't use JPGs or PNGs for a few of these things.
This is just one example on one page, but the whole project is like this, all SVGs arent show up. Windows IE 11 on SCORM cloud:
Windows IE 11 locally:
Windows Chrome (But also shows up on Mac/Safari/ChromeFirefox/etc):
One time it randomly worked, I have not been able to recreate the situation. Same ZIP and everything:
Do they show up in another more modern browser (Chrome, Edge, FireFox)? IE is outdated, not even pushed by MS anymore.
Yes, see the screen cap above and read the post where it's shown fine working in Chrome.
I know it's outdated, but I don't have any control over what the end user's uses. Especially when a client demands it works in IE 11 because that's their standard web browser the that they use.
There's a very simple solution to this. Ditch the SVGs and replace them with PNGs. Your client won't care that you use a PNG. They just want the content to work.
You could spend forever trying to get IE to support a technology like SVG reliably and still fail. Your quickest solution is just to use something that IE already supports fine.
Yeah, I was afraid that was going to be the suggestion. That's why I said I can't use JPGs or PNGs in the original post.
But the reason I said that was it seems like no matter what size and resolution I make some of the PNGs, the artwork is always jagged/fuzzy/pixelated looking on certain devices when it comes to responsive mode. The PNG itself looks good, but once it's in captivate and the PNGs get scaled down on other device sizes it seems to not scale properly, especially for small icons like this home button:
The on on the right is an SVG and looks crisp, but the one on the left is a PNG. This is the tablet view. The desktop looks fine:
Another example of what SVGs look like compared to PNGs. It doesn't matter what size or resolution I put them in at.
Yes that's the suggestion but unfortunately SVGs have the issue you first mentioned on this thread.
To my knowledge, until Adobe fixes the issues with SVGs, those are your only two real choices.
I have had problems like this, and the solution was as RodWard suggested, stop using SVG. It was not my preferred solution, but it works and it is better than not having any image displayed.
Even current versions of Captivate still do not handle SVGs flawlessly. I don't quite know what the problem is, but they always seem to be unreliable. The Cons outweigh the Pros in my opinion. So until Adobe fixes the issues and makes SVG rock-solid across all modern browsers I cannot risk using them in my projects.
