Why do Adobe release unready software?
After updating my CC Aps I have lost hours of productivity due to CC 2018 not exporting SVG, it goes through the process but doesn't write the file. Looking at forums I have tried resetting my preferences. I was then able to export 1 svg - now it doesn't work again.
Were paying for premium with CC but why do adobe push out software before its fully tested - I wouldn't mind actually waiting till 2018 for the 2018 version of the CC apps!
I have the same problem. It didn't work initially, I tried restarting and it worked. But now it stopped working again. I didn't change any settings in between, it appears to just stop or start working randomly. Restarting Windows didn't work this time around.
Although now, with CC 2018, Illustrator no longer crashes when I tried to open multiple files from the file explorer, and I no longer have to use drag and drop to open files while preventing crashes...
And yes, for the price I'm paying, it's really annoying to have to deal with this stuff.
I just found a fix:
I've only tested this once but it fixed it. No idea why it's doing that, hopefully will be fixed in an upcoming patch.
Just noticed this problem this morning. Illustrator’s longstanding love-hate relationship with SVG seems to continue.
jamesc11920234’s restart fix did not work for me.
However, I was able to export files using “Save As...” with SVG as the selected format, plus "Use Artboards" selected. (Both "All" and "Range" seem to work.)
BTW, in the “Export As...” dialog, even the "Show Code" and web browser launch button also are not working.
Thank you!!! Your solution of Save as>SVG>Artboard>worked. The other suggested one of closing and opening AI did NOT work. Comon' adobe... this is a MAJOR glitch. Using your XD.. You NEED this feature.
Does not work with any suggested workaround procedure in Illustrator.
Only true workaround is to use Photoshop:
1. Copy asset from Illustrator
2. Paste as shape layer into Photoshop
3. Export SVG from Photoshop
Fix it please.
Wow. That actually worked for me too. Adobe, get your sh!t together..
Some of the workaraounds work for a while but then the problem returns later. Very shoddy, but unfortnately exactly what I have come to expect from Adobe.
This worked for me.
Well, the fix from jamesc11920234 but this had got to be properly resolved! I am in the middle of the biggest project of my career and have a ton of SVG graphics due on monday. The frustrating part is that I've been exporting to SVG repeatedly all week and it just stopped working in the middle of a design session for no apparent reason. Resetting preferences and rebooting did not work but it wasted a lot of time. Shutting down Illustrator, reopening without a file, and then loading my file, DID work.
So, for Adobe: the problem was with exporting to SVG using the Export For Screens panel. I did not update or change anything during the work session when it quit. I did reboot. CC did not update in this timeframe. I'm using the latest update to CC version 2018 on Windows 10.
This is one of many issues I'm having since the latest update. I'm still trying to resolve an issue with PhotoShop that causes all tool optoins to act as though I have right clicked. Reinstalling didn't work. I'm very quickly losing faith in Adobe after the last update. I've never seen so many issues with your software before this. I actually had to use The GIMP the other day to get something finished on time. I've reinstalled CC and all of the apps half a dozen times.
It worked for me. Thanks!
Thank you!!! This worked for me..
Thanks for sharing.
That worked for me ❤️
thanks that worked for me
UPDATE on 12-MAR-2018: We have the fix available in the latest release. Please update Illustrator using Adobe Creative Cloud application to the latest build for version Illustrator CC 22.1.
Please refer to the workaround here. Unable to export Artboards as SVG – Adobe Illustrator Feedback
Yes, I was annoyed when the problem was tagged as solved. Trashing preference files is so last-century.
Try using "Save a Copy..." under the File menu with SVG as the export format and checking "Use Artboards". It lacks the prefixing controls and some other conveniences of “Export for Screens...", but it has worked reliably for me. (Don't overlook the range option.)
When will this be released officially through Adobe CC?
not so sure about that (that it's fixed).
Verified fixed in v22.1
I've found a solution.
It seems that illustrator cc 2018 has some incompatibility with old preferences. I've restored them to default as explained here How to set preferences in Illustrator and now it works
Nope. Asset export to SVG format still does not work.
This didn't work for me
I've solved by doing this. Thanks.
You can't group anything with a compound path either?
