Every designer wants the ability to use custom made icons. Now, you can!
The new Icon Library lets you enjoy the power of SVG files, giving you the ability to upload your own custom icons.
So what is SVG and what is so special about it?
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation.
SVG files work in a similar manner as icons. You can scale them up or down without creating blurriness or  losing resolution. They are extremely lightweight and keep your pages lean.
An important security notice!
Uploading SVG files from unknown sources may pose a potential security threat. We recommend you upload files only from a trusted source and enable this feature after you understand and accept the security risks involved.
Once you upload an SVG file, Elementor sanitizes the file, removes any possible malicious code, and leaves only the skeleton of the required image. After the upload is done, you will be able to preview the image and filter it using the native WordPress media library, only showing SVG files. The SVG is inserted into the page as inline code.
We recommend uploading SVGs without any inline styling, in order to take advantage of the full capabilities of the Elementor’s styling controls.
