Won't import SVG file correctly

Something has changed since the last update, I can't import an SVG file correctly. The shapes come in but the gradient does not. The SVG file was created in Illustrator and opens fine in Illustrator. Copying and pasting from Illustrator either turns the gradient into a solid colour or it flips it upside down. I have placed this file before and has never done this until the last update. Even the colours are different from the old file.

Hi ScSmith,

 

We are sorry to hear you are unable to import the SVG file into XD. When you say that it started happening from the last update, could you please tell us the OS and XD version of your machine? If possible, please share the video with us for a better understanding?

 

Is it happening with a specific file to all the files?

 

We will try our best to help.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

macOS 10.14.6 – XD 30.2.12.3

In the example highlighted, you can see the gradient is upside down. This was placed, if I copy and paste it the gradient disappears and becomes solid. The logo above the selected was imported before the update(s).

I have and it still does it. 

It's either XD not importing correctly or Illustrator not exporting correctly.

I think it's XD since I can't copy and paste it either from Illustrator.

Is there a way I can give you the file I'm trying to import to examine?

I figure out how to fix the problem, don't save as SVG in Illustrator, instead, export as SVG. Why this makes a difference makes no sense to me. I also noticed Illustrator's save as alters the vector art, exporting does alter the artwork but very little. To me, this is a bug in Illustrator. Both actions should create the same artwork but it doesn't.
