Using, I'm trying to save a SVG document as image in DBISQL's result viewer.

I have called a function that returns an XML document as result set. So double-clicking that opens the XML/SVG preview. Now I click the "Save" button in the SVG preview (cf. the image) and would expect a "FileSave" dialog.

alt text

But this dialog does not appear until I click again in DBISQL's window (it doesn't matter in which pane). However, unfortunately, now the dialog is visible but it doesn't have the focus. And if I click in the FileSave dialog to gain focus (and enter a file name or choose a location), the dialog immediately disappers again...

So I find unable to save the SVG as image...

Any hints...

I had no problem saving my SVG preview as an image with I used this query from the demo database to generate my XML:
select shape.st_assvg() from SpatialShapes
Does my sample query work for you?

Yes, now it does, as do my own images:)

Sigh, rebooting the system solved the issue, and now the dialog works as exptected.

It may be due to the fact that I had not yet rebooted after installing over the previous EBF (as the new EBF didn't ask for that) - IIRC.

Just another reason to remember Breck's according hint:)
