HTML5 SVG output--no worky in IE11?

Hey All,

 

Just discovered the HTML5 ODS output destination & created a lovely inline SVG with SGPLOT--yay!  

 

It looks great in chrome (Version 55.0.2883.87) but gets rendered as sad sad text in IE 11.0.9600.18638.  

 

I'm using SAS 9.4 (TS1M2)  on the X64_7PRO platform, with the daisy style.

 

Is this known/expected behavior?  Is it fixed in an upcoming release maybe?

 

Thanks!

Hi Roy,

 

I don't think this is a known behavior.  Would it be possible for you to attach a sample html file that displays the problem when viewed in IE11?

By default the font will be embedded in the inline SVG in the file.  It may help to try with nonembedded fonts instead.  To do this, specify:

options nofontembedding;

 

Thanks,

Hi Roy,
unfortunately you ran into a big Microsoft Bug for the IE11. Its memory handling in conjunction with HTML5 is not this performant what makes working with that browser very slow.
Please have a look at the SAS note 60514. http://support.sas.com/kb/60/514.html
There might be other problems related to this IE11 behaviour so the best you can do (as of today) is to use another browser, as you already tried.
Regards Christoph
