illustrator settings for saving out svg

  • When I save my illustrator files to svg, the line weights aren't holding up. Are there specific setting I need to use in Illustrator CC? I've attached sample files of a couple of illustrations

  •  Hi,


    I recommend SVG1.1 and adobe CEF with no embedded images or fonts.

    No clipping paths, masks or other special effects.

    Only use stroked and filled paths.


    possible related issue: if you paste the vector art into a different AI document with different settings and/or scale it larger, the lines may seem thinner because the stroke sizes do not automatically increase.

  • Thanks! I had already done what you suggested but tried clicking on "preserve illustrator editing capabilities" and that seemed to do the trick. But thank you for your repsonse!

  • I've found I can export selection to SVG in Illustrator CC but I need to be sure and check Inline Style instead of the default Internal CSS. This allows lines to draw correctly.
