I used AI to create vector graphics for a game for around 3 months, until now, I moved to Affinity designer until AI fix their SVG export 

In AI a problem was always present:
The SVG export.

Adobe Illustrator ruins SVG graphic files:
1. Gaps between shapes
2. Gradient color unwanted alterations
3. Layers might overlay incorrectly
4. Wrong transparency percentage
(All the above only after exporting in SVG format)
(I only work using vector graphics, so the issues are all for vector graphics)
____

Please, fix vector graphic exporting in SVG format
_
My best guess if this is not fixed soon is that Adobe company don´t want users to emigrate from their closed system of softwares, so they keep paying monthly for their unpolished programs, because currently exporting files properly is impossible, and any attemt ruin everything inside the file

I use Pixel units, even with 7 decimal places there are still gaps between shapes after the SVG exporting
About the issue of gaps between shapes: 
The issue could be for those reasons:
1. The use of "Pathfinder"
2. The use of "Draw Inside"
3. The use of "Outline Stroke"
4. Other reason
___

The gif below show the Gaps between shapes.
The gaps are only visible in other softwares and browser, in AI the shapes display correctly
(Softwares used below: Affinity designer, Inkscape, Illustrator)
AI contain all the errors of SVG but does not display them until after the SVG is exported

Yes, the SVG export is garbage.

 

How can that not be fixed by now?

 

The money from my subscription alone should be enough to hire a programmer to fix this.
