enter image description hereDoes anyone know why when I save out an SVG icon that my edges get misshapen and do not look like what I have designed; Example: Smooth edges are exported as sharp.

  • Export settings: File > Export > SVG > Styling: Internal, Font: SVG, Images: Links, Object ID: Layer Names Decimal: 1, Minify and responsive. – Bridget Lyons Mar 30 '16 at 18:50
  • I don't think the issue I am having is with the SVG settings though. I think it's with the vector shape. I checked all my settings/preferences and they look good. – Bridget Lyons Mar 30 '16 at 18:51
  • can you attach a snapshot of your working file – Rishab Mar 31 '16 at 7:27

Outline your strokes, select them and then click Object > Artboards > Fit to Selected Art. Then try exporting again.

  • thanks for responding. i am not using strokes though. i was able to find a workaround but i still want to solve the issue. and the dartboard is larger than the vector image. – Bridget Lyons Mar 31 '16 at 20:16
