Appending number after SVG export
After exporting SVG files there is a version number added to the file name... can you make this optional... It adds a bunch of unnecessary steps to my work flow as I have to then navigate to the file and rename it every time I export...
I've been trying to figure this out as well. Every time I export a file (not just an .svg file) it adds a number after. Can this be changed in preferences or somewhere? This thread looks old. I'm using AI 2020.

If I have 2 files in a folder... Lets say "diagram-A.ai" and "diagram-A.svg" Then I update diagram-A.ai with some new changes and I want to export as svg and override "diagram-A.svg". When I do this in the current illustrator it appends a a number at the end of the file name for example it will export as "diagram-A-01.svg"... It would be nice if if just stayed as "diagram-A.svg" so I don't have to spend a extra time navigating to the file in the the finder, deleting the older version and renaming the newer version...
Thanks a lot for adding your request to uservoice. To understand the issue more, could you please elaborate more on you workflow? How do you export SVG files? Do you use File > Export as... File > Save as... or Export assets? Do you export artboards?
