Description Jim Bennett 2016-11-24 23:08:05 UTC
I have a Xamarin forms app that uses Vector drawables on Android and PDF vectors inside an asset catalog on iOS.

On iOS I can reference the images fine in both a Xamarin Forms Button (setting the Image property) and an Image (setting the Source property).

On Android I don't see the vector in the Image. I see it in the Button, but it is cropped oddly.

See for an app that reproduces this.

See (only fixes the Image part)
Comment 2 Jim Bennett 2016-11-28 03:58:19 UTC
The poor images could be my converter... Damn you Android and your proprietary image format!

Thanks for fixing the issue. Is there a potential release version?

No idea. It's something that XF team will have to decide. Perhaps it could make it before 2.3.4 stable.

Gonna try pull this for 2.3.5-pre1
Comment 5 Samantha Houts 2017-02-22 20:09:47 UTC
Should be fixed in 2.3.5-pre1. Thank you!
