Create scalable PDF vector graphics with Preview

The first sentence of this hint says, "It is easy to create a scalable vector graphics file..."

This hint does not create a Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file. It creates a PDF. I suggest rewording the hint to avoid confusion. And the title would be better shortened to "Save PDF Graphic Elements using Preview".

Ya, it must be a scalable vector graphic to begin with. Preview does not trace bitmaps and create vector graphics.

It is a scalable vector graphics file - it is not a Scalable Vector Graphics file. You already figured out the difference, no? But what the OP says is not a lie… The resultant PDF will be vector, which is inherently scalable, and is presumably going to contain graphics. A PDF is going to be far more useful to the vast majority of users than an SVG would be anyway…

And how many didn't? The submitter, for one! Should be reworded to break up the word order: "It's easy to create a PDF containing vector graphics which will scale when resized..."
