Thanks for the quick reply Mike - sounds like a good workaround (provided I keep my wits about me around the save button!)
Interesting topic. It is now 2018 and I still can't export a usable SVG using "Export Selection" or "Export Artboards". Deleting and undoing is certainly a workaround, but dangerous. Please make VS work with the current SVG export option in Illustrator!
Correction: I AM able to save SVGs using Artboards, but not "Selection". There are more limited SVG export options using "Save Selection" in Illustrator. I guess I should turn my attention to Adobe.
Hi, total beginner here so apologies if this is a simple question.
I've been trying to use layers in illustrator (CC) to create variations to an image and then simply hide the layers in turn to save them each out as an individual SVG file.
This does export just the layer I want as an SVG file however it obviously also exports the path for the other layers as well because videoscribe animates a 'ghost drawing' of the other layers.
Is there a way to create a multi-layered image then export each layer out so it draws correctly in videoscribe?
Obviously I can just create new AI files for each part of the image but it seems like lots of people use layers - just not sure if I'm missing some technique here.
