I'm new to AI and been struggling to get a circle exported as path instead of circle. I need path for animation on web.
The shape is really simple, just a 1pt line circle. I used arc tools and joined 4 arcs together to make the shape.

  • Use the circle tool. A circle made with the circle tool is a single path.

Select your circle, go to object menu -> compound path and press make.

In your SVG output, your circle shape will convert to svg path.
