SVG Updates

Several enhancements have been made to the SVG workflow in this latest Illustrator CC release when saving as SVG or when opening SVG files in Illustrator. If you save as SVG (File > Save As), in the SVG Options dialog box, there have been a few additions and changes. The Fonts Type option now has SVG chosen as default (in earlier Illustrator versions, it was set to Adobe CEF). Clicking the More Options button at the bottom of the panel and the Decimals option is now set to 1 (it was 3 in previous versions), as shown in Figure 16.

Another new option in the SVG Options dialog box is the Responsive selection. This option makes the SVG content scalable using CSS. Also in this update, when you open an SVG file directly in Illustrator, visual fidelity is maintained by aligning objects correctly with the pixel grid.
