Feature request #4055
Enhancement: display SVG symbols in themed collections instead of all together.
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||duplicate|
Quoting from another bug ;)
Town planners, naturalists, geologists and other professionals have their own symbols
QGIS is used to produce maps showing many different types of information. Each different field would typically require different symbols. Currently the SVG symbols are all displayed together, and they are mostly symbols suited to a tourist map or something, plus north points.
It would be good if the available SVG symbols could be filtered, to show different "collections" separately.
i.e. instead of displaying the SVG symbols all together, there could be a tab for each "collection". The collections could be things like Tourist Map, Topo Map, Geology, Utility services, North Points or Map Decorations, etc.

Actually, this shouldn't be closed, because it is only implemented for selecting svgs for layer symbols. If you want to insert a North point on a composer layout you do "layout>add image", and under "item properties" you can either use a file selector under "main properties", or choose from all the images in all the search directories, under "search directories".
You cannot show just the images in one "group" (maybe the "image search paths" combobox is supposed to do this, but it doesn't work on my system at least).
