btw, I'm not really sure that the current way of dealing with
embedding/exporting raster files in SVG document really optimal. See,
opening an arbitrary file I can't tell if an image used there is
embedded or not without looking into source code.There's no indicator
to tell that. An improved hint in status bar could probably be the
first step in the right, IMO, direction. Something like "Embedded
image A x B size in layer N" and "External image A x B size in layer
N". What do you think?
Can you elaborate a little? For me, when I open an svg in inkscape which
has an imported image, the status bar does tell me where it is. For a
non-embedded image the message is already "Image # x #:
/home/example/picture.jpg in layer LayerName" or for an embedded image
it's "Image # x #: embedded in layer LayerName". So, as far as I can
tell, it gives the status bar messages you're looking for unless you are
looking for the specific wording of "External image" for the embedded ones.
