Export FreeHandAnnotation to SVG

Product: WebViewer

Product Version: 7.3.0

Please give a brief summary of your issue:

Is there any way to export FreeHandAnnotation to a scalable format e.g. SVG?

I’m aware that it’s possible to export it as a rasterized image using the canvas, but this seems to yield a lower quality image than the FreeHandAnnotation so I’m wondering if there’s a way to export it to a vector format that has higher fidelity?

Hi Martin,

Currently there is no direct way to export FreeHand annotations as SVGs.

What does exist though is exportSignature(), which will export a signature in base64 image data and from there you could convert to SVG.

This feature request to export FreeHandAnnoation to SVG has been added to our feature request backlog.
