bitmap snapshot of what the browser display. So I don't need an image
capture program to make hard copies of SVG.
Indeed, if I reduce the browser size, I have a truncated image, with an
ugly vertical black line on the right.
I see two solutions:
1) Zoom out the image. Loss of quality, not very good.
2) Resize the browser window to the required dimensions.
I use for example CopyText by Victor Sapojnikov
<http://www10.pair.com/vsap/> which is a freeware allowing a number of
window manipulations, like resizing to the dimension of your choice.
I made a simple test SVG:
<svg width="1000" height="1000"
viewBox="0 0 1000 1000">
<circle cx="500" cy="500" r="490" fill="blue" stroke="blue"/>
I use CopyText to resize IE to 1010x1300.
I use Copy SVG context menu and paste into IrfanView.
Yeah! I got whole image, I have just to trim out the black line.
Note: beware of Paint, older versions (?) had a bug too: when you paste
an image larger than the internal window, it is cropped to window
dimensions. Use a modern, performant image editor :-)
There are lot around, some even free.
