Summary0003031: Add an option to export a selection as bitmap, EPS, or SVG
DescriptionSometimes it would be handy to have an option for exporting a selection as bitmap, EPS or SVG as in inkscape or OO.o Draw. One situation I can think of is the reuse of a logo created in scribus in other apps (inkscape, OO.o). This is not of high priority, but it would be useful anyway.

EPS does this now.. select and export.

But this is not obvious for users.

agreed 100% with christoph_s: the menu option is "Save _Page_ as EPS", which makes exporting selections to EPS to another hidden feature. Thinking about ways of improving it:

-- Renamíng the option to "Save Page or selection as EPS"
-- Adding "Save as EPS" to the context menu

What do you think?

mhanski, do have a drawing software like CorelDraw or Illustrator within reach? Otherwise, have look at OO.o Draw. In the export dialogs, there is always a checkbox for "Selection". This seems quite reasonable and logical to me.

BTW, in 1.3.4, the string has changed to "Save as EPS" already.

christoph_s: i cannot find this checkbox in OO.o Draw export dialog, but I consider what you propose pretty fine: Save as EPS/SVG and a checkbox "Export selection only" in the export dialog seems very logical and pretty obvious

>>> christoph_s: i cannot find this checkbox in OO.o Draw export dialog

"File > Export >> see the checkbox bottom left.

yes, this works with eps, would be nice if this could also work when
file > export > save as image
