a question. You should have your CC files on your desktop in a folder, right? Mine is called Creative Cloud Files (work on Mac) and it has a cloud as an icon. Have you tried to right click on top of your SVG and see if you get an >open with... that gives you any other options?
I post a screen shot. This is what happens if I right click on a .mov file from my CCFiles catalog
It does not force me solely to open the file on Adobe apps, so I suppose you should be able to make your choices this way. Once you have opened the file from your program of choice, nobody blocks you to keep on saving it as .svg from whatever app. Or am I missing something?
Yeah, you would think those files would show up in the desktop folder as shown, right? But they don't. Even though I am logged into the desktop app, my desktop folder is completely empty. I'm logged into CC from within the Capture app on my phone. SVGs created with Capture are saved to "Libraries". When I log into my CC account on a desktop browser and navigate to "assets.adobe.com/assets/libraries", my SVGs are there, but I have no way of exporting an SVG. See below. Suggestions?
I'm sorry, your post didn't show up in my notifications when you first posted. Right now the only way to export a vector from Capture is through the Libraries panel in Illustrator CC. I don't know when/if that will change, but right now that's the only way to export shapes as svgs.
I know it's not the answer you were hoping for, but I hope it at least clears up any confusion.
Thanks for the follow-up, Sue.
Yeah, that's a total drag. The app's ability to quickly transform a photo into an SVG has enough appeal to me that I would have coughed up a one-time cost of, say, $20 for it, but if (as I suspected was the case from the beginning) Adobe is going to force me to commit to at least a $240 per year subscription for Illustrator CC (a desktop app) just to access (and use as I see fit) the vectors I created with Capture (a mobile app), it forces me to look for an alternative solution elsewhere. Got to say, Adobe's strategy feels like one which is going to lose in the long run if it continues to alienate non-power users.
I definitely understand the sentiment. And I definitely will share it (in its entirety) with the mobile team. Thanks for taking the time to post.
Thanks, Sue. Much appreciated.
