    I just tested it with a simple shape (square) it preserves the vector, if you have your graphics grouped or oterwise nested, it might be necessary to ungroup/divide them.

     

    Also make sure how your Illustrator Clipboard Preferences are set: Preferences>Data and Clipboard

    Hi ,

     

    You can try https://github.com/davebelais/Extensible/blob/master/Javascript/Extens ible/SVG.jsfl which creates an SVG formatted image for your artwork.

     

    Further , we will have vector export from Flash as one of the features for our next major update.

     

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hi Auclander ,

     

    You need to install the extension flash2svg.zxp from the location https://github.com/davebelais/Extensible. For installing the extension make sure you have the Extension Manager CC installed(Help->Manage Extension). After installing this extension , it would then appear under Windows->Extensions menu as "SVG. Launch the panel and play around with the different options available to export your artwork to SVG file format.

    The panel snapshot attached -

    I also received this error when I finally got around to trying it.

     

    A JavaScript error occurred.

    At line 3 of file "/Users/george/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Flash CC/en_US/Configuration/Javascript/Extensible/Function.jsfl":

    TypeError: extensible.dev is undefined

    Hi Auclander ,

     

    This is a third party extension and there might be some scenarios which are not being handled in this. However , I tried with some simple shapes and exporting this using the extension worked without issues. Is there any specific scenario which you are trying.

     

    Thanks and Regards,

    Sudeshna,

     

    I finally was able to make this work at least partially. If I imported an AI, create a symbol afrom part of it, moved that to the stage, I could select "Current Timeline" as a source in the interface and get everything on the stage to export as an SVG. It did not matter if I turn off layers in the timeline, or selected them on hte stage or the library.

    However, I could not get it to export anything but a blank frame if I chose "Selected Library Items".

     

    George

    This functionality existed in previous versions. It has now been removed.

    The simple question is: why?

    Adobe secrets! o_o

    The third party plug in is no longer recognized as an installable package by Adobe Extension Manager, and throws an error anytime I try to install it. The error says that the .zxp file is an unrecognizable file type.

     

    Your last update to this issue was in July. Can you please shed some light on when we can expect to see this feature (the ability to export vector graphics) put BACK into Flash, since its something that was originally there, and has now been removed without explanation.

     

    Thank you.

    So I've searched around and the only information Adobe is providing is that this functionality will appear at some mythical point in some future update.  Meanwhile they have taken the time and effort to break the plugin that they keep recommending as a workaround.  Extension Manager CC will no longer recognize and install this ZXP.  Good job Adobe, you're aces.
