can the default SVG settings be changed?

If you open an SVG that uses Presentation Attributes, hitting cmd+s will save it with Style Elements instead.

We have hundreds of SVGs that need to retain Presentation Attributes.

Going in and changing the options back to Presentation Attributes from Style Elements on every save is laborious.

Hello, if I save a graphic as svg (presentation attributes), close it, open it again in AI and save it again with cmd-s, it remains with presentation attributes.

 

Can you provide an svg file for testing?

 

If there is no other way, you or I could write a javascript that executes theSave with the desired options. If you need help, just get in touch.

Thanks, I just tried again now and it retains Presentation Attributes, hitting cmd+s.

Must have been a wild bug...
