I've looked all over the stack and internet but haven't been able to find the exact answer. I've tried doing the legacy "File > Export > Export As" and ticking "use artboard" but it hasn't solved my issue. I've also tried opening the SVG file and reducing the artboard to fit the content but as soon as I use it somewhere else, it just adds the transparent area back immediately.
I've attached my SVG and a snippet of the file. I have a lot of different objects on the illustrator file and don't want to break out to a new file everytime i want to export something. If anyone has any idea how to remove the transparent area from the clipping mask I'd really appreciate it.
