Export SVG with classes, not IDs?

Jul 15, 2013 10:49 PM

I want to export an SVG file from illustrator, embed it in an HTML page and style it using CSS.

 

But when I name each layer in illustrator, it doesn't save them as classes but as IDs. How can I get the layers to be saved as classes instead?

 

Thank you!

    If you don't have a lot of images, you could manually do it your self. Other than that I need to allow someone else to anwser your question. Sorry I wish I knew the answer.

    You will have to apply a graphic style to your elements. Named graphic styles are treated as classes. It's not reliable, though. AI's usual appearance-centric approach may produce a separate class every time a style interacts with another object.
