CSS Question

Scaling SVG produced with inkscape

I am trying to resize this SVG file produced using inkscape

I have tried using

viewBox="0 0 h w"
attribute within the
<svg/>
but it crops the image instead of resizing. Thanks in anticipation

Answer

Inkscape doesn't add a viewBox attribute to the files it produces. That attribute is needed for scaling to work.

The solution is to convert the width and height values to a viewBox and then alter your width and height.

So add the following to your root <svg> tag:

viewBox="0 0 205 69"

Then change your width/height. If you want double size, you could do:

width="410" height="138"

Or if you want it to fill the page or it's parent container you could do:

width="100%" height="100%"
