EPS, one could argue, is now a ‘legacy’ format, but disappointing to know that PDF is not planned at all.
Musings about coverting PDF to SVG
If you’re creating stuff in a vector artwork editor (or Dorico itself), then it’s easy enough to choose SVG and export; but I have many more apps that don’t support SVG. Also, if you need to convert a large number of existing PDFs to SVG, that’s more difficult. (Don’t forget that Affinity Designer et al still can’t be relied upon to faithfully import a PDF.)
There are surprisingly few (decent) PDF-to-SVG converters. I’m largely distrustful of online converters, and some will raster the image rather than keep everything vector.
Command line utilities are often provided only as source code, which you must compile yourself, and frequently require several dependencies to be built and installed first.
The only one I’ve found that is reasonably straightforward is MuPDF, affiliated to GhostScript, which comes with a command line tool mutool that has a convert option.
Window users can download a binary: Mac users have to build from source.
Download the source code; unzip the package, then in the Terminal type cd (followed by a space), then drag the folder from the Finder into the Terminal window.
sudo make prefix=/usr/local install
and enter your password.
(You can then delete the source code.)
Then you can convert PDFs to SVG using such commands as:
mutool convert -F svg -o filename.svg inputfile
If there are multiple pages, the page number will be appended to each filename. Either the -F flag or the -o flag is optional. But not both.
