Is version 22.3.1 the last one supporting 'Export as SVG' ?

I had to rollback to version 22.3.1 because neither 22.4 or 22.4.1 showed the option to export as svg.
Is this a bug, or has Photoshop stopped supporting it ?

 

OS info:

MacBook Air (M1, 2020)
11.3.1 (20E241)

 

Cheers !

That's an issue with M1 native photoshop. If you run photoshop using Rosetta and ensure Preferences > Tech Preview > Optimized Export As is unchecked, then you can export SVG as explained in this adobe KB: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-for-apple-silicon.html#native-known-issues

Hi Lucas_SE,
also in the new version, it is possible to export to SVG. The path to follow is File, Export, Export As, and choose SVG.

"Does not work" is vague.

 

Are your specs the same as the OP's: MacBook Air (M1, 2020); 11.3.1 (20E241) ? If not, what are they? Are you using Rosetta? What version of PS? What happens when it "does not work"?

"Doesn't work" is vague?

It is simply tiring to ask the same questions over and over again and give the same answers to a problem that has existed for months. SVG saving does not work with Mac M1 and Big Sur 11.5.1! The last working version is 22.3.1. everything after that can't save SVG.

Thank you for letting us know this, as I see now that you've started three topics on this issue in addition to adding to this one. The way to avoid asking the same questions over and over again is to not post on four separate threads.

In your first post you were told by Adobe Staff that the product team is aware of the issue and is looking for a fix. You were also given this link:

Thank you for the reply.

 

I was aware of the M1 issue, but what's curious is that it works fine on v22.3.1.

For now, I'll just skip updates until this is fixed, since it runs much smoother without Rosetta.

 

Thanks anyway.

@Lawrence R 

Please clarify:

  • Which preference did you check and uncheck?
  • Which command are you using to try to save in .svg?
  • What does "the thing doesn't run at all" mean?
