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.

    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 !!!

    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.

  • Graham Spiers commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Actually Save As doesn't work either (I get an SVG but it is not the file I saved). Even AI doesn't load it correctly and it wrote it. All it is a simple shape. Going back to AI 2017 (again).

    I downloaded the update today and unfortunately it still does not work to export .svg files. It is still indicated to me that it has come to problems with exporting. Also .png can not be exported.
    For me, the export function is the most important, should that not be fixed soon, unfortunately I have to change the program. Sorry Adobe but I expect faster updates and fixes for such drastic errors.
