Current R SVG driver produces SVG that does not allow people to easily edit graphic labels (all character strings are converted in paths). Re-pluging RSvgDevice will let TXM keep character strings in the SVG, so that it will be easier to edit label properties (size, font...).

- RCP: add new SVG driver preference
- TBX: Replug RSvgDevice
- TBX: add an option for the RCP SVG driver preference

A discussion about Cairo SVG export and the "text" tag: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38516
Another solution to keep using Cairo may be to export the charts as PDF and then convert the PDF to SVG with a Java lib.
