Description

SVG path is set to:

Settings > Options > System > SVG Path > "C:\\OSGeo4W64\\apps\\qgis\\svg"

Confirmed the SVG folder has SVG images.

In Layer Properties > Style Manager > Marker Symbols only 14 marker symbols show up... cannot see any from custom path.

I have reinstalled QGIS and delete registry keys and still no luck any ideas?

If I understand correctly - this is a workflow issue, not a QGIS issue.

Adding svg paths to QGIS will make them available if you create a new svg based symbol (e.g. svg marker symbol or svg fill symbol), but it will not automatically create new symbols for each SVG present.

Please re-open if I've misinterpreted.
