What is a Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) though: It is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation. The SVG specification is an open standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) since 1999. SVG images and their behaviors are defined in XML text files. This means that they can be searched, indexed, scripted, and compressed. As XML files, SVG images can be created and edited with any text editor, but are more often created with drawing software.

In order to Insert a SVG File in one of the Microsoft Office applications, just continue reading below.

In the image below, we notice the images that are located in a folder and that they all have the extension SVG.

Whatever application we use, the Insert Picture dialog box will appear, where we just must navigate and locate on our computer where these SVG Files are located. Once we locate them, we select the one that we want and then press the Insert button. ( In the image below, I have installed a program on my computer in order to edit, preview the SVG files), but I still do not have a preview thumbnail of the images.
