What about supporting VSS files in the future? (Visio shape libraries)
Since end of July there is support for VSS files in libvisio. It's not
yet publicly released, but I have a suspicion that getting Fridrich to
release a tarball isn't all that difficult :)
Also, I'm not sure if the preview scale option is required at
not sure if the preview size should be accessible at all times. What
I've seen for GIMP's resource dialogs (brushes, gradients etc.) is
that people pick one preview size and use it all the time, and often
don;t even touch this preference at all. But should that want to do
it, there is a dialog's menu for that.
The first two sets of symbols I looked at had symbol widths of 6000 px
and 3 px so without a preview size option they wouldn't have been
viewable. That is why the default preview scale is "Fit". But I prefer
to see symbols all scaled the same. If we assume that people only use
symbols that come with Inkscape then perhaps we could drop the preview
scale but I don't think that is a good assumption.
