Illustrator exports SVG with font set to ArialMT

When we export artwork from Illustrator with text formatted with the Arial font, the SVG code has the font set to ArialMT (the old Postscript name). This generally isn't a problem unless the image is displayed on a system that does not have the ArialMT font installed.

 

Short of change the SVG code, is there anyway of preventing Illustrator from using the old Postscript name for the Arial font.

 

It seems to be same with artwork created on MacOS and Windows.

 

Inkscape does not have this problem.

Hello @m.j.vermeulen,

Sorry to hear about your experience. Would you mind sharing some more details, like the exact version of the OS/Illustrator, details about your workflow, a sample file (https://adobe.ly/4aLljhB), and a screen recording of the problem (https://adobe.ly/3NEjqJm), so we can investigate this further?


Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks,

Anubhav

Hi Anubhav

I hope you don't mind, but I thought I would respond to your reply to m.j.vermeulen for further information, as I am still have issues with Illustrator saving SVGs with the old Postscript name for Arial (ArialMT).
The font does not render correctly in Firefox, but is okay in Chrome.

I am using MacOS 12.7.2 and Illustrator 27.8.

Here is a link to a sample SVG file: https://shared-assets.adobe.com/link/63cb7036-4280-4337-4564-e0a12144f521

I will send you a screen recording by direct message in a minute.

If you need any further information, please let me know.

Regards

Matt
