This bug is PackageMaker (and Installer?) does not support EPS, PDF, or SVG in packages. It was filed on 2006-05-19 at 02:20 PDT.
PackageMaker/Installer should support the use of EPS, PDF, or SVG image files in Installer packages.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Create a package in PackageMaker.
- On the first step of the Interface Editor, drag a EPS, PDF, or SVG file onto the window, or click Custom Background Picture and choose a EPS, PDF, or SVG file.
The EPS, PDF, or SVG file is accepted as the background of the package.
The EPS, PDF, or SVG file snaps back (drag), or is disabled in the list (choose file).
As far as I know, Installer has never supported EPS, PDF, or SVG files.
Vector graphics would scale cleanly to any resolution, which is good for the coming resolution-independent UI. Currently, it is necessary to use a large and/or multi-image TIFF file, and hope that it's enough.
