SVG Export

AI 22.1. 64-bit Windows 10
The SVG export is much better in this new version of AI. However, on some art boards it is still missing some components. However, if I select the art board, then choose Save As SVG, it displays the components, but it is a much larger file. I will upload this AI file, which has 12 art boards. It is Art Board #11 that is not exporting properly when I press Ctrl+Alt+E. This image has 6 green bars, but 3 of those bars are not showing up in the image. Everything else seems to be correct. The other images also export correctly.

    Hi, I'm having problem with the svg export since I've updated to the latest Illustrator version: the icons and logos I'm trying to export showcase errors - such as missing curves points and discrepancy within the original design. It's now 3 days that I'm trying to export the files: I've double-checked the design structure and it's correct. Why the design is out of place with moved elements when exporting it to svg?

    I tried to reply to your email message, but it was an unmonitored email box. How do I upload the example file here? I put my reply in this post, but the images will not show nor do I know how to attach a file to this post.

    Here is the screenshot of the SVG export:

    Here is a copy of the same image as PNG:

    You can see that 3 of the green bars are missing.
    I have AI version 22.1 64-bit for Windows 10. I complained about this bug a long time ago. I added an attachment to that email that I set a long time ago, but what I have done here was I have taken the problem image and put it in its own AI file. Although this problem seems to be relatively minor, without understanding why the bug arises, I can't be sure that my SVG images are going to reflect the image that I see in AI or that I would see as a PNG file. After all, I do not want to have to test each and every image to make sure that every little detail is actually present in the image. When version 22 1st came out, the SVG images were missing more components or the SVG image would not even export at all. It just seems that Adobe has not really made much of an effort to test the files before distributing them to the public. Although version 22.1 solve many of these problems, it did not solve all of them, so this needs to be fixed, because like I said, I don't want to have to spend time examining each and every SVG image to see that it actually represents the original image.

    Although I said this in the prior email, I do want to point out that the image does display correctly when the AI file is saved as an SVG file, but I do not want to use that file for a webpage, because it is a much bigger file. I do love the export feature that you have in Adobe Illustrator; it is the best way to save image files that I have seen, but you do need to fix this.

    I do want to point out that most of the files are exporting correctly, but the software bug could have subtle effects that may be hard to detect. Aside from including a copy of the PNG file at a screenshot of the SVG file, I have also attached the AI file, which only has the affected image.

    Is this ever going to be fixed? When? Could you please give an estimate of when this will be fixed.

    I wrote previously that SVG images were missing arrowheads. I have now discovered that AI 22.0.2 is still missing entire curves. These curves also have arrowheads, although I am not sure if that is the reason why they are not showing up in the SVG image.
