Great for conversion of svg to pdf

Gapplin has been great for the task of coverting .svg files to .pdfs. I set up an automator action on a folder to auto-convert .svg files that appear to .pdfs, and it was fantastic. Unfortunately, when the latest version of the software added support for time-based extraction, the ability to use automator with the app seemed to break. I'm still giving this 5 stars because it has saved me tons of time doing manual coversions. I hope a fix will available for this in a later version.

Great little app

Works great as a previewer! I use it to automatically display my result, as I edit my svg files manually in my faviorite text editor. As soon as I save my file, Gapplin will update the preview. Export also works great for me, although I don’t use it much as I prefer my files in the original svg format.

Works OK, but ....

I only installed this because it didn't occur to me to try the graphics file previewer built into Finder, which is simpler to use. Web browsers can also render SVG (obviously!) but tend to leave out the page boundary.

There's a text editor, which I don't see much use for. Also a simple format converter, which could be very useful if you don't want to bother with advanced SVG tools. Really the only reason to use this app.
