I just tried that link but it says its no longer available?
My issue was sorted with a system restart and resetting preferences. Also theres a new checkbox inside the export screen for creating an auto sub folder; its ticked by default. Uncheck that badboy and we're back to the good old days!
Whether using file export, or export as or any other exporting technique, when you try to save as SVG it simply creates a folder in the selected location called 'SVG' but doesn't actually save the file there. Nightmare...
