I need some information.

 

I have an SVG code. Is it possible to paste the SVG code directly in illustrator get the artwork from the code.

SVG code (from other source) > Copy > Open Illustrator Document > Paste the code > Get the artwork.

 

I dont want to save SVG each time and import it in illustrator.

I hope it make sense.

have your tried copying/pasting? I just did and it worked fine here Win 10, CC2020.

 

the svg code I copied was a file I exported from Illustrator, I'm not sure if svg from other sources will work as well.

That's not possible. Paste the code into a text file and then save it. Then you can open it in Illustrator and import it.

Wow, that actually worked. It was pretty easy 🙂

Thanks a lot and my bad for never trying the same. 😄

 

However, for some (or many) files it says 

"cannot paste the objects. the requested transformation would make some objects fall"

Any solution for this?

Yes, those gets opened when saving svg and opeing it in illustrator.

However, the object inside svg crossess the artboard as well as the entire visible area. But it do gets open by this process.

With copy paste, I am seeing the above error message.

You could use the following tool: https://jakearchibald.github.io/svgomg/ , simply copy/paste the code in then download as a binary file.
