Report-an-Apple-bug Friday! 42

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.


Summary:

PackageMaker/Installer should support the use of EPS, PDF, or SVG image files in Installer packages.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a package in PackageMaker.
  2. 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.

Expected Results:

The EPS, PDF, or SVG file is accepted as the background of the package.

Actual Results:

The EPS, PDF, or SVG file snaps back (drag), or is disabled in the list (choose file).

Regression:

As far as I know, Installer has never supported EPS, PDF, or SVG files.

Notes:

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.
