Saving Artboard as an SVG without a border in the result

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm trying to export a layer as an SVG, but when I open the finished product, there is a border around it (I think it is from the artboard). Wondering if I can set it so every layer can be exported without a square border around it.

More detail:

I have a file setup as a grid of artboards (see attached) and I want those objects (with no border) exported as an SVG. Looking something like this:

Switching to Export Persona, I have slices of every artboard and in this case select "Page 1" to export as an SVG. I can see that every slice has a little symbol of a pentagon and a circle surrounded by a purple square border. I've seen in tutorials that this symbol can be just the shapes colored yellow (this is what I expect I want to have in this case). So the Exporting looks like this:

After saving it off and opening the resulting SVG file, I end up with the desired objects from the layer, but I also have a rectangle surrounding the whole thing. It looks like I can delete it manually and save it off again to just get the objects in the layer. I'm wondering how to set it so I don't get a border of where the artboard was in my outputted SVG. So I want to stop exporting the highlighted rectangle:

Let me know if you need clarification. Thanks in advance for your help.

Here's a test file: svg_export_testing.afdesign

Best,
