In order to add svg files to the documentation it is necessary to install inkscape 0.48.4 or higher. Environment variable PATH should be updated.
Automatically generated bu doxygen files (make.bat, doxygen.sty) are postprocessed by occdoc.tcl.
SVG-files should be located in the directory with other images.

Use markdown syntax to include svg-image to the HTML:
![Caption text]( img.svg "Image title" )

Use next syntax to include svg-image to the PDF:
 \caption{The test svg-image}
Note, that extention of image is hidden.

Another way to include images has been implemented:
@OCCImage image_name.png
@OCCImage image_name2.svg Caption text

Note: this way allows to include SVG and other formats equally. Format of documentation (PDF or HTML) also does not matter.

Dear abv,
Could you check Branch CR24431?

I have reimplemented support of SVG with less interference with LaTeX documents, by direct conversion of SVG files to PDF. Images can now be inserted with single command @figure{path/to/file.png,"Caption"}. Documentation is extended by additional details on installing MikTeX and Inkscape and insertion of images.

Yuri, please check if this works in your environment. Please convert all images that were in vector format (MS Word Draw) to SVG, and updating all image insertion commands throughout OCCT docs to use new command @figure (as far as it is appropriate).

I've added existing .svg images, reviewed and added some advice basing on my own experience.

I guess we can close it now.
