    David.Woosley got a reaction from hawk in How to completely avoid the .afdesign file format   
    Hi. We work with SVG files, and I'd prefer not to know that the .afdesign file format even exists for a variety of reasons. For example, to save an edited SVG file, here are the steps I've found:
    Click on File.
    Click on Export.
    Click on Export again.
    Click on Save.
    Click on Yes to overwrite.
    Attempt to close the file.
    Click on No to avoid saving the afdesign format.
    Here are the keystrokes: Alt-F, E, Enter, Enter, Enter, Ctrl-W, N
    I'd typically expect: Ctrl-S, Ctrl-W
    Since these SVG files may be edited and deployed by other users using a variety of design tools, whatever extra information exists in the .afdesign format is irrelevant. Whenever I receive an SVG to edit, that extra information obviously won't be in the file.
    I may be missing something. How do I save an SVG as an SVG by default? Not export, save. Is there a setting somewhere?
    Many thanks, David.

    OK, thanks. It's a good-looking product, and I'm pleased to be a new customer.
    Suggestion for a future release: Please allow industry-standard file formats to be created, edited and saved with industry-standard functionality without interference from propriety formats. I believe that would be helpful to many, if not most, users.
    Regards,
    David
