# \includesvg works, scaling does not

in my document i got:

\begin{figure}[h]
\centering
\def\svgscale{0.5}
\includesvg[svgpath = pictures/]{somefile}
\caption{svg image}
\end{figure}


Which does indeed import the picture, but the pictures size does not change with values like 0.5 or 1.5.

with 0.5 i was expecting a reduction in widht and height of 50%. Is that wrong?

• The documentation of package svg does not say anything about scaling. It supports options width and height. – Heiko Oberdiek Sep 11 '16 at 9:05

\includesvg[width = 200pt, svgpath = pictures/somepicture]
