Positioning of the content within a ScrollView breaks when you enable zooming

This issue has been tracked since 2022-09-23.


Me and a colleague are using the ScrollView with react-native-svg to show a graphical representation of a plant. The user can manipulate the plant and that will update the entire drawing. We noticed some weird behaviour after enabling the zoom functionality. The position of the drawing is not correct after the user zooms out and the plant gets re-rendered with a different size. We have created a small example with just the ScrollView and Rectangle component to test this out. The demo is described below.


0.68.2 (tested on the latest version as well)

I have created a snack to demo the issue, but within the project I get the following information:

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open the Snack in iOS;
  2. In the Snack example you can see a blue rectangle where you can swipe vertically;
  3. When you pinch zoom the container and let go the rectangle reposition itself correctly;
  4. Press the rectangle will change the dimensions of the SVG (parent) element within the ScrollView;
  5. The position of the rectangle is not correct anymore and we can't find a solution why.
