    I can't install snap.svg to animate cc


      I want to export svg animation from adobe animate

      I installed the plug in snap.svg and the extension manager cc and I have the adobe desktop app but it's not working.

      what can I do to make it work?

          Did anyone succeeded? I'm on Win10+AnimateCC2015/2 pt-br. And you?

            There is an issue with Extension Installation in general if your OS language is different than your application language. Extension Manager team is working on it. Mean while you can just copy the contents from the below folder

            C:\Users\(your user name)\AppData\Local\Adobe\Animate CC 2015.2\(OS locale code)\Configuration\Commands\

            to the following folder

            C:\Users\(your user name)\AppData\Local\Adobe\Animate CC 2015.2\(app locale code)\Configuration\Commands\


            If the above solution doesn't work, can you please let us know if you see any error when you install the plugin through WinUtility or through ExManCmd_win?

              Both OS and app are in the same language so I only have one single folder (pt_BR) inside C:\Users\Davi\AppData\Local\Adobe\Animate CC 2015.2. Then inside of C:\Users\Davi\AppData\Local\Adobe\Animate CC 2015.2\pt_BR\Configuration\Commands I have 6 JSFL files (Convert To Other Document Formats.jsfl, Copy Font Name for ActionScript.jsfl etc) and a names.xml listing all of them.


              How can I get the JSFL files for SnapSVG? I tried unpacking the ZXP file (the one from Github) but didn't find that type of extension.


              Finally there are no errors when I install through Extension Manager CC, WinUtility, ExManCmd or Creative Cloud but no files are copied in those folders and nothing shows up in Animate splash screen. And neither if from there I go to Models > General > Type.


              Would you have any other hints so we can debug this? I can be on IRC or other kind of chat to make trouble shooting easier.

                SnapSVG is a CEP based extension. CEP extensions are installed at following location :

                Win: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\CEP\extensions

                If you already have the zxp file of extension, you can use the WinUtility. Please make sure that you are using the updated WinUtility for Animate 2015.2 (Download here). After successful installation you will get following state in WinUtility: snap.PNG  


                Launch Animate 2015.2 and you will get new doc type as SnapSVGAnimator(Custom). Can you please share the screenshot of your WinUtility state after installation of extension to further investigate this issue?

                Adobe Extension Manager CC has been phased out as a stand-alone product due to its integration with the Creative Cloud application. For more details about extension installation : Install extensions in Adobe Animate

                  I can install Teamviewer or similar so you can inspect it better if you'd like. Here's my C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\CEP\extensions:

                    I got it! My Animate CC sync account was misconfigured. After I fixed it, the new Type begun to appear.
