Not Able to Export Multiple Artboards

When saving and leaving the "Use Artboards" option unchecked it will save the currently selected social media icon correctly.

When saving and having the "Use Artboards" option checked, even though it creates three numbered social media icon files, they are all empty. The only thing in those files is the general xml declaration of it being an svg.

What could be the issue? Done everything the same as Ashley.

Kind Regards, Florian

Hi Florian, I'm not able to recreate your particular issue in Illustrator CC, can you confirm this is the version of Illustrator you're using?

I'm aware of some earlier versions of Illustrator that require a plugin to address something similar, so if you're using different version, please let me know.

Thanks, Joel
