I'm pretty new with Illustrator, All icons will be converted into icon web font for one of my projects.
When there are objects around the artboard (with or without expand) the file gets corrupted on converting.
Error when converting
Strokes get ignored when generating fonts or CSH files. You may convert them to fills and reimport your SVG(s).
I saw there was an option for Use Artboards on save and tried without luck.
I temporary delete everything around the artboard when saving and ctrl+z, but that's not a good solution for me.
There must be a way to have objects around the artboard and still be able to save it successfully.
