Hi XD team!

A few hours ago I have updated my windows 10 PC. After that, I am not able to import any SVG file in XD.

Also, Copy-pasting of vector objects from Adobe Illustrator to Adobe XD artboard is not working as well

Would you please check this issue?

Latest OS Build: 17763.1

Version: 1809

Thanks.

Thanks for sharing the screenshot Lokmanh, as you are unable to import SVG, I would request you to try the steps mentioned here: - Files didn't import into Adobe XD  and share the results.

Please update this discussion in case you need further assistance.

Thanks,

Atul_Saini

Hi Atul Saini

I can't import any kind of SVG. For example, before the windows update, I have used icons from https://material.io/tools/icons/.  After the update, I can't import any SVG icons from there.

I have also many SVG icons on my computer and I have imported and used those icons in XD many times. After the windows 10 update SVG import is not working in XD.

Thanks.

for me not to be stopped I downloaded on the site of xdguru the icons of the material in an .xd file. 
Then just copy from one file to another that gives to continue the work.

I hope they solve this bug soon.

I have the solution, just roll back your windows version,
Windows - Settings - Update & Security - Recovery - Go Back to a Previous Build

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out and sharing the solution, I am sure it will help other community members. In addition to the steps shared above, I also found a helpful article, which shares more information on importing files from Adobe Illustrator: https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/how-to/import-assets-from-illustrator.html

 

Regards

But then - you can just copy your artwork in AI and paste in XD, no need to copy & paste the SVG code

Thanks, that worked! (Today is my very first time trying out XD) It also worked with another SVG I downloaded from a website (placing it in AI and copying-and-pasting into XD). However, it still doesn't work to import it directly? Is that an issue, or just how it works?

I am sensing there's an issue importing SVG on Windows (you're on Windows, right?), because I can import SVG direct on my Mac no problem. One for Adobe guys to investigate and fix...?

I export an SVG from Illustrator, and as the last window, I get the option to see the code, I copy all of that with ctrl+a and ctrl+c and click on the open XD window and click ctrl+v and/or right-click and paste. And nothing happens. (The image I made in illustrator is very simple, just 2 regular shapes and a pen-drawn shape, so shouldn't be any problems with the file itself, I think)

You don't need to export to SVG from AI, just copy and paste your artwork from AI to XD
