svg export for screens distorted
Vectors getting quite distorted creating svgs of logos even with 5 decimal places and no minify. I've had to copy and paste into Sketch then export svgs from there, not ideal at all.
Still having this problem but figured out you can save as a png, open a new blank doc in illustrator, drop the png into the new doc, image trace it and play with the settings until its exact and then finally export that as an svg. A real pain but at least theres a few workarounds.

Windows 10, Illustrator 23.0.1
1. Create a circle or an equilateral rectangle.
2. Apply the Pucker & Bloat effect; either one will do.
3. Expand appearance. Check that the effects are now regular paths.
4. File > Save As > SVG
Result: Either check the saved SVG or view the code. The shape that was a circle will be generated as a circle, the rectangle will be an ellipse.
Expected result: The SVG displays the paths as they appear in Illustrator.

Same type of problem here using newest 2018 Illustrator.
Copy and paste the image into Photoshop and export from SVG there works fine (but this is a major PITA)

I'm experiencing same thing- particularly on files that utilize filters. And including many files downloaded from Adobe Stock that are simple icons. Polygonal patterns won't export without an outline around each shape. Layers with varying filters and opacity won't export. We're having to use png files which is not ideal for responsive web design. I shared my files here: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-bugs/suggestions/36044137-svg-export-distortion
