Support for vector graphics

Currently (Tropy 1.0.4) I’m unable to add vector images. Most of my scientific figures (sketches, plots, drawings) are SVG, EPS or PDF files. It would be great to be able to work with those formats too.

P. S. I’ve also been thinking that it might be interesting to add support for TikZ code snippets, rendering them to preview on-the-fly. This might be very useful for LaTeX users.

Thanks for the feedback!

Adding support for SVG is an interesting idea – we will explore it a little further to evaluate how much effort it would be. You can track the issue on GitHub if you like.

Rendering TiKZ on the fly sounds pretty cool to me, but I think it is too early in Tropy’s stage of development to consider it in earnest.
