|Drawing → Symbol
|Introduced in version
This command allows you to add the contents of a SVG image on a selected Drawing page. These contents can then be moved and rescaled on the page. The contents of the SVG image are copied into the FreeCAD document, so it is independent from the original file, and will display the same way on another computer that doesn't have the original SVG file.
How to use
