Is it possible to disable warnings for the DrawSVGPlugin? Keep getting this:


"Warning: <path> length cannot be measured accurately when vector-effect is non-scaling-stroke and the element isn't proportionally scaled."


And since its a stroke animated on scroll i get hundreds of these in my console.

Is that the latest version? (0.2.0 / 2018-08-27)


I ask because @GreenSock made some updates to that plugin based on info in this thread about non-scaling-stroke.

If you're using that latest version and still getting that error, this is above my pay-grade. We'll have to kick it to upper management. 


Happy tweening.

Good point, @PointC :)


@jesper.landberg, if you are truly using DrawSVGPlugin to animate a <path> that has non-scaling-stroke and isn't proportionally scaled, that's a problem and the console.log() calls are valid. It won't break anything outright, of course - it's just a warning. The measurements won't be correct due to browser issues that we can't fix. And there's no way to disable it (other than to fix the problem with your non-proportionally-scaled element).


If you're still having trouble, please provide a reduced test case in codepen and we'd be happy to take a peek.
