Well, this is a fun one. I have a diagram that was drawn up in Illustrator, and now I need to export it to SVG. Doing so using the Export tool gives me a fairly good result, except for two arrows, whose arrowheads come out a different color than their settings from the AI file (should be dark blue, but is instead black. The line stroke retains the correct color.)

 

If I use the Save As command, the arrows come out correctly, but then the fonts on my text don't come out correctly, so that's sub-optimal.

 

A liberal use of the inspect tool in my web browser has gotten me to the point where I can get a "fixed" SVG using the export tool, but I'd rather know how this is happening so that I can fix it going forward.

My system tells me I'm up-to-date, so that might not be it.

The system. What about Illustrator? Is it the latest version?
