I have spent the last week trying to get Illustrator to export svg. Totally fine before. Spent 3.5 huors with support team totally wrecking my graphics settings, then having to kick them out and reinstall everything.
The export starts, then either looks done or freezes totally. Nothing exports.
I really need svgs as I am a web developer. what on earth is going on? Everything is up to date.
What's in your file? Can you upload your file to Dropbox or the like for someone to test?
So there are 200,000 paths in this file and 2,000,000 anchor points and you are wondering why this doesn't want to export to SVG?
The other files that worked well weren't quite as large, I suppose?
Thank you, not really though I still have several other files and new clients coming on. i need to be able to export to svg.
And I need each artboard as a separate svg, they aren't much use to me as one giant document. It's not really the point of a logo is it.
This looks like a file specific issue. Shared file was behaving the same way as you explained in your post. Instead of using Export option, I used Save as a copy to save the file as SVG. Took some time but got SVG files using this method. You may try this on your end as well. Please download the files from here.
Hope it helps.
