Importing SVG library easily

It will be great to import the SVGstudio libraries directly to access them just as native libraries. Once theese new libraries will be dowloaded, we shall navigate easily between their images, and very quickly.

Hi Luc, If your SVG library is in a compressed (zipped) VideoScribe version 2.0 will allow you to view the images within VideoScribe via the import image option (folder icon).

Thanks, Joe

Yes you can import the zip file but you cannot search them or find them again after that initial import. I wish this was also fixed Luc! 

I thought that all the new images would be added to the library. I gather that is not the case? It seems that I can click on the zip file and the images pop up for use but immediately disappear when I back out. Is there no way to save them to the library? The library looks barren but there are all those images out there on my computer.

I'd love to know the answer before I make our IT department crazy!

Hi, Unfortunately you cannot import videos on mass into your library. You can import the .ZIP and preview the images draw (right click - preview image) but they will only stay in your library once you have selected them and added them to a scribe.

It would be great to be able to import large groups of images all at once and for these imports to be searchable.

Surely, i love sparkol/videoscribe. I saw many people are asking about how to add image on base folder, but sadly no response till now on.


Yes! I'm really sick of this hunt of custom svgs again and again to import in VS, this really frustrates me.There should be an option to import .zip (like we can do) and save it within our library with a custom folder name at least for the pro users! please implement this in future updates.

this iss ues was presented over 2 years ago.  This seems to be a practical/intuitive process to be able to import multiple graphics at once.   I am wondering how much of the team actually use the software as its intended?  Create a story board and see how frustrating it is to have to go one at a time to bring in a dozen...or a hundred different images :(

Whats the maximum size of the .Zip file that can be imported ? I am unable to view my imported files

There is no set maximum size but there may be issues with zip files containing large numbers of SVGs (this only works for SVG images).

How many images do you have in your zip file? What is the size of the zip file?

If you break the zip file into smaller zip files, are you able to import a smaller one?
