I am not able to preview SVG files in Adobe Bridge since CS2 version.

Has Adobe removed this feature or am I missing something? I'm using both Windows and Mac, version CC and CS6.

Unfortunately, the feature was removed in CS4. –  Yisela Jul 18 '13 at 7:04

Thanks to Yisela for letting us know it was removed as a feature in CS4.

There are some alternative programs out there that accomplish this like IrfanView on Windows which also does a wonderful job at displaying .psd files as well.

It turns out on Mac OS there is a product made by Adobe that allows svgs as well appropriately called Adobe SVG Viewer. I can't speak to its efficacy, but it appears to be the alternative to Bridge for a Mac made by Adobe themselves.

If you check "Include XMP" on saving SVG dialog, you can get a preview, but it will bump filesize up like 10x times.

Tested on last Bridge CC version on Mac OS X 10.10

SVG Options Save Dialog

for all versions? –  Kurt Sep 22 at 20:25
@Kurt I've tested it on last Bridge CC on Mac OS X 10.10. I suppose it will work on every version, since it using the same principle of using XMP for additional info. –  Keeprock Sep 22 at 20:44
