SVG export with text – line breaks forcing text to convert to outlines
I've been working on a project that requires SVG files with embedded text and have discovered what seems to be a bug.
It seemed arbitrary at first, that some text objects would be converted to outlines while others would remain as text. I finally figured out that forced line breaks were the culprit, as illustrated in the screenshots I've attached. The problem is the same whether you use point type or area type objects.
I'm currently running the latest version of Illustrator (24.1.2) on macOS High Sierra (10.13.6).
I've also noticed this issue is similar to another one that might be related:
