Hi there.

I am still trying to get the RSVGTipsDevice to work, yet I can not.

I have copied the first example from RSVGTipsDevice documentation:

library(RSVGTipsDevice)
devSVGTips("C:\\svgplot1.svg", toolTipMode=1, title="SVG example plot 1: shapes and points, tooltips are title + 1 line") plot(c(0,10),c(0,10), type="n", xlab="x", ylab="y", main="Example SVG plot with title + 1 line tips (mode=1)") setSVGShapeToolTip(title="A rectangle", desc="that is yellow") rect(1,1,4,6, col='yellow')
setSVGShapeToolTip(title="1st circle with title only") points(5.5,7.5,cex=20,pch=19,col='red')
setSVGShapeToolTip(title="A triangle", desc="big and green") polygon(c(3,6,8), c(3,6,3), col='green')
# no tooltips on these points

points(2:8, 8:2, cex=3, pch=19, col='black')
# tooltips on each these points

invisible(sapply(1:7, function(x)
{setSVGShapeToolTip(title=paste("point", x)) points(x+1, 8-x, cex=3, pch=1, col='black')})) dev.off()

This results in the following output:

http://www.nabble.com/file/p11064573/svgplot1.svg svgplot1.svg

It opens but when I try and hover over the triangle, for example, I do not get a topptip box appear. I have tried opening the file though firefox, and XP IE - and on more than one computer yet it does not work. Do I need to install something else as well?

Many thanks
