SVG Previews and/or Thumbnails in Document Library?

Hello All..

I'm sure this has been asked before, but is there a way to get SP to generate previews for SVG filetype?
It really seems odd considering the office apps are able to finally import as well as SVG and SVG use in websites.

Thanks

Hi @Nicktod-5716,

Per my knowledge, SVG file preview is not supported in SharePoint online. I have tried to add a picture library with Thumbnails view to show SVG picture. But like you said, we are not able to generate previews for SVG files. But you could use Microsoft PowerToys File Explorer add-ons to enable preview pane rendering in File Explorer to display SVG icons (.svg), Markdown (.md) and PDF file previews. Then use "View in File Explorer" to preview SVG files as a workaround.

You could send feedback to Microsoft SharePoint Feedback.

Man... What a giant miss for MS.

Double checked BOX and DropBox... They have them.

Left my feedback.

Thanks

Hi @Nicktod-5716,

Per my research, you could use Microsoft PowerToys to preview SVG files in Windows File Explorer. You could download Microsoft PowerToys then use "View in File Explorer" option in SharePoint online to preview SVG files as a workaround.
