When uploading a new presentation to presentation/slide/image library, one may be met by the following error
Prior to 2019, the upload of such file types was still possible, however this lead in many cases to corrupt presentations. As of early 2019 the admins are presented with this error/warning, as the support for SVGs had been revoked. It is recommended to convert such images to EMF files instead.
