Legacy SVG export, exports new SVG style

I need the old style SVG export.

I would expect something labeled "Legacy Export" would give me a result consistent with the older software, but this is exporting the 'improved' svg which does not work with my web apps.

Is there anyway to get the old style SVG or am I stuck in 2018?

Hi KramSurfer2

first of all, where in Animate do you see "legacy Export" ? I only know File -> Export -> Export Image (Legacy) ... . Legacy here only refers to that this is the old Image Export routine. As it has been declared so, when a new Export Image ... was introduced a couple of versions ago (I'm not sure when and can't find the specific info right now, but propably with the re-branding to Animate.)

In no way does it mean SVG export (Legacy) !

Secondly what precisely is your "older software" with which the 'improved' svg does not work? What do you mean when you are talking about "with my web apps"?

And too it would be interesting to know what the difference between the old and the new SVG format is. Is it something in the SVG declaration [coming through Image Export (legacy) in Animate]:

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" version="1.1" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" preserveAspectRatio="none"

x="0px" y="0px" width="400px" height="391px" viewBox="0 0 400 391">

???

This is Scalable Vector Graphic as it is defined by the W3C SVG Working Group some 19 years ago. Okay, it might be the second edition of version 1.1, but still that would be 8 years old.

Of course not all browser supported in the past all SVG features. Specifically Internet Explorer was for a long time reluctant to join the full SVG bandwagon.

Maybe you should try SVGO, which is an Optimizer for SVGs in HTML. Here is the link to their web interface SVGOMG - SVGO's Missing GUI .

"My web apps" are a host of web apps I've written for commerical use.  We've over 5000 unique users per day and we create SVG content for the app with Macromedia FX... oh I mean Animate CC.  ( apps use to be FLASH based )

The 'Legacy' export for the given file types all use the older interface and I would assume the old export code.

When selecting .svg filetype after utilizing the 'legacy export' option, ( which is a valid choice ), one would expect to get and SVG similar to the SVG from the older animate, not the 'new SVG' format introduced in 2019

You can see this post explaining the differences.  I'm not the only one.Static SVG Export change?

The path to usable SVG's in the browser was too long, but we're here now!  I'm not so worried about supporting Internet explorer... either is Mircosoft... haha  As they're going to be using Chromium soon...

've looked at SVGO in the past, it didn't work for me, thanks for meantioning it though...

I've put in a bug request, but I'll likely work around it before anything there happens.
