Is there a way to force curves to become paths when exporting to svg?

Recommended Posts

If you really, really want a <path> rather than a <rect>, you can set one or more corners to a small non-zero value. If you type 0.001 into the numeric control on the Context toolbar it will be displayed as 0% but the exported SVG file will include the desired 'path' element.

What’s the problem with rectangles instead of paths if they are essentially just rectangles anyway?

I'm saving the path strings to a database and it would save me time not having to manually convert rects to paths.

... and I know Illustrator has that ability and I like Designer more so I thought I'd ask.  :)

Interesting approach. I'll go with that until there is a 'convert to curve' option somewhere.

Thanks for the help.  :)
