Compound paths not saving
When I make an object a compound path and then save as an SVG, when I go to open the file again, all of the compound paths have reverted to paths. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, I've tried an earlier version, I've done everything I can think of and still my SVG files will not retain compound paths. I'm using an M1 MacBook Pro, AI v27.2
In SVG 'compound paths' are required to have at least two sub-paths (https://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/paths.html). If a shape doesn’t have any holes, it gets saved as an ordinary single path, according the specification, since no sub-paths are presented, ands gets read back as a non-compound paths. Shapes with proper holes are kept as compound paths.
