Unable to export Artboards as SVG
The AI does export to SVG. I have used this constantly in the previous version, but the new version will not save the image in SVG format using the Export for Screens option.
We have the fix available in the latest release. Please update Illustrator using Adobe Creative Cloud application to the latest build for version Illustrator CC 22.1.
Please refer to our knowledge base FAQ – https://illustrator.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1844590 if you face difficulty in update.
Or get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html

I had the same problem, and it turned out that it was because i had everything in one masterlayer. As soon as I had a layer for each artboard, it worked

Well done, Adobe. I don't know how long this bug exists, but it's loooong... And you're wrong, it's not fixed at all. After the next couple of months and updates, I'm still not able to export assets as SVG files.
Let's say I have 20 assets I want to export. Regardless of the progress bar that shows that export has succeeded, maybe 3 of all assets will export properly. Maybe the next 5 will show up after the next 10 minutes. And the rest of them will now show up at all. It's totally unpredictable! :D
Is it really so hard for you to fix that???
Same troubles, sometimes it exports one artboard instead of 7 artboards. Windows 10 also tested on Catalina
Updated to 22.1 still doesnt allow export of SVG

I have the same issue in the 24.0 version. It exports some of the artboards, but not all of them.

SVG export was working, but then it just stopped again. Reset prefs. Uninstalled and reinstalled... still not working. NO good!..
The svg export in illustrator does not work yet. You can not work like that !!!
Jason Cooper commented
Not working for me either.
Ta Tong Lee commented
I am currently at CC 22.1 as well and the export to svg is still not working!
Luis Rodrigues commented
Come on!!! How can you still have this bug??? Artboards in Illustrator are a really bad experience, why don't you use the same artboard System that you have for Adobe XD or something similar... even the organization of the panels decreased the user experience... And after all I'm wasting my time trying to export to simple svg icons

This works for me now. I had to change the SVG settings to two decimal places for my small artboards (note that that did not work a few months ago - after this bug was "completed").
I don't think Adobe pays any attention to "completed" bugs.
I have the latest update installed but I still can't export SVGs.
Still doesn't work. The Save As function creates a much bigger file than Export for Screen and nothing really works.

Still not working I'm afraid. Sometimes it works, then other times it won't work at all.
