Trying to export selection as SVG (File > Export selection). Illustrator goes through the motions, opens the destination folder and... nothing! No file. Searched my HDs and nothing is saved.

UPDATE:

Can't seem to save any form of SVG, even by copying the selection in to a new doc snd doing Save as. When try to save a compressed SVG it does save a file, but the file is 1KB in size and Apple preview just shows "Error on line one, column 1: Document empty".

How do these major issues get into the wild, are we not paying Adobe enogh $billion$ per year¡?

Using the same system I don't have any issues with that.

Also having issues exporting SVG files from Illustrator on Windows 10.

Like you have said, Illustrator goes through the motions and creates the file but it only contains a fraction of the data that it should. I've tried new files, resetting preferences to no avail.
