Sorry for the delay —
I have tried to save to USB, to a directory on the desktop and in c: — so i don’t think that it can be permissions but good thinking.
It seems to be a general issues at this point .. i have tried reboot, new file, and so on …
i may have figured out what the workflow is anyway to cause it to happen … i am using inkscape and selecting all, then convert object to path and saving as svg. It seems like some of my older files when i was not using inkscape however using corel draw and illustrator works ..
so i have a workaround anyway –
