It has come to my attention that it can be difficult to post .svg files created in Adobe Illustrator CC here on the forum. You may see an error that says that “the size of the file cannot be determined, your file might be corrupt”, and that is annoying when you want to share something. I first wrote this in the tangram thread, but thought I should make it it’s own thing so it is easy to find.
I wanted to drag & drop an svg that I had exported from AI.
I could not. WTF, mate?
Searching seems to have found a solution:
Use the Save As or Save a Copy dialogue (Do not use Export or Export for Screens)
Make sure the Responsive box is NOT checked!
If you are using Inches or Centimeters as your units, set Decimal to 3.
If you are using px as your units, set Decimal to 1.
Here is a screenshot of the settings that worked for me.
All sorted out now… I think. Maybe this will help others who had the same problem. It is pretty weird that “Save As” and “Export” do not display the same SVG setting options, and “Export for screens” doesn’t give me any SVG sub-settings at all.
Happy posting, dragondrop away!
