SVG files can not be opened in Adobe CC / Illustrator 22.1.0 (Mac OS, High Sierra)
I have been successfully exported / imported SVG files in the past. Just recently I had to re-install MacOS and Adobe CC suite with Illustrator, Photoshop etc. I just noticed I can not open SVG files in Illustrator anymore. They can be opened in Photoshop but not in Illustrator. If i try to open them in illustrator, I'm seeing prompt where I can choose if I want to import the file in text, PNG (!) or some other formats.

The solution below worked for me.
Dirk from Adobe Illustrator here. We are very sorry for the issue you experience. Could you try the following please?
1. Open the SVG file in question in a text editor.
2. Save the SVG file to a new SVG file with a different file name.
3. Open the new SVG file in Adobe Illustrator.
Please tell us if the newly created SVG file opens in Adobe Illustrator.
Help! I’m suddenly having this same issue too and it’s my whole business!
