Centering SVG graphics in iBooks?

Hi all!

I have been sitting with this for a couple of hours and the result is not satisfactory. What about you guys, know any trick?

First I tried with proper svg code (I think). "preserveAspectRatio=" values seem to have no effect, x y have no effect:

Then I wrapped it in divs with a css class of "margin-top:50%;". That worked in regards to affecting alignment but 50% did not put it in the middle, rather further down close to the bottom. I could play with percentage values to get it centered on a 1024x768 iPad, but what about future larger screens. Probably will not be in the middle on those if 50% puts it wrong.

I do not know what else to try, can you help? Thanks.

Code:
<svg version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"
          width="100%" height="100%" x="0" y="0" viewBox="0 0 600 800" preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid meet" >

Is this SVG being used in an HTML file by itself? If so, don't try to vertically center the content that way. The easiest way to do what you're trying to do is to set the height and width of everything to 100% and stuff it in the HTML. For example:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> 
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:svg="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
<head>
<title>Title page</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="nookstyles.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="nookstyles2.css" />
<style type="text/css">
    html,body {
        height: 100% !important;
        width: 100% !important;
        margin: 0 !important;
        border-width: 0 !important;
        padding: 0 !important;
    }
</style>
</head>
<body style="height: 100%; width: 100%;" >
<div style="width: 100%; height: 100%;">

I am confused now. I tried some things out with your code seeing that your text is indeed centered. But then I decided to remove any parameters I think might center it from the html document to make sure what is what. With no code to control the centering your SVG is still centered.

When I use my own it does not change position at all?

Yours pasted into my document (no alignment controlling factors):

Code:

I should have added that another reason I used outlines instead of text as you recommended is to maintain the look of the graphic element. If I use glyphs to embed the font some e-readers will still ignore it. This way it stays searchable and will look the same everywhere.

I do think you are more adept at SVG then I am, I am still learning a lot. But in the context of what I want to achieve, is'nt that a good solution?

On the plus side, older Kindle models (4th gen is used as a standard in Kindle Previewer I believe) do not show the svg graphics but at least shows the content within the text tags in the svg. A relatively good fall-back I guess.

I really appreciate your help, thanks!

This code worked pretty well, seems that arranging coordinates in the svg is the way to go. Still not centered, just almost. I'm gonna try to understand more about why it works a bit later. Exported svg code from Illustrator. In Illustrator I made the artboard iPad retina size to future proof it a bit since it will scale on screens that are smaller. Centered it on this artboard and exported.

Code:
<svg version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" x="0px" y="0px" width="100%"

In most clients, much of what I did is unnecessary—maybe unnecessary in all clients, but I've seen enough screwball handling of SVG that I was being paranoid.

Actually, to be honest with you. I just saw that you SVG has a bit more space on top then below on the iPad. Kindle devices always center SVGs, yay!

If you're talking about my content, as far as I can tell, the image is getting centered correctly; the text is just a little too low in the image.

The image meaning the SVG content. The text wasn't centered within the bounding box because of a bug in my LaTeX code that generated the PDF that I translated into the SVG.

Be afraid.
