Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes.

The zoomAndPan attribute specifies whether the SVG document can be magnified and panned.

Magnification in this context means the effect of a supplemental scale and translate transformation on the outermost SVG document fragment.

Panning represents a translation (i.e., a shift) transformation on an SVG document fragment in response to a user interface action.

Two elements are using this attribute: <svg> and <view>

<svg viewBox="0 0 200 200" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" zoomAndPan="disable">
  <filter id="diffuseLighting" x="0" y="0" width="100%" height="100%">
    <feDiffuseLighting in="SourceGraphic" zoomAndPan="1">
      <fePointLight x="60" y="60" z="20" />

  <rect x="0" y="0" width="200" height="200" style="filter: url(#diffuseLighting);" />
