I am exporting SVG from illustrator and the text with special characters is falling apart with special characters. Is there a way to do this correctly?

This is what it should look like

Any Tips?

  • You are using a swash cap, which is an Open Type feature that svg likely won't support. Converting your type to oulines the way Wouter suggests, is your best option imho. – Vincent Nov 5 '14 at 16:12
  • Thanks I knew this was a possibility but I wanted to keep it as text not an outline... thanks for confirming my fears though – Atacoman Nov 5 '14 at 17:47

Expanding the text might solve your problem.

  1. Select the text
  2. Choose Object > Expand...
  3. Click Ok.

Did this solve your problem?
