Illustrator file errors

Hi. I must have hit something in illustrator. I’ve been working with it for over a year with no issues. Files I am saving to svg today are giving me an error when I try to open in Glowforge. So I try to reopen in illustrator and I get the following errors.

This SVG is Invalid. Validate it before opening.

I click Ok then get this message.

The operation cannot complete because of an unknown error. [STEX]

Any ideas? Thank you in advance.


What are your SVG options settings?
This is what I have been using.

and Convert to Outline should also work.


I just wound up resetting illustrator and it seemed to fix it. No clue what I had done. Thank you for the quick reply!!!


I love when things are fixed like that, hahaha!


you do know you can copy right out of illustrator and paste into the GF app? Try it!


No I had no clue! I will definitely try. Thank you.
