A fix for the SVG scale issue that I didn't see in the forums

Hey everyone,

I ran into scaling issues when trying to import an SVG that I created in Illustrator 2020 (v24.0.1) into Easel.

I looked through the forums and found a lot of helpful posts, but none of them really resolved my issue.

So, I poked around with the settings and managed to get my SVG imported at the correct scale without needing to edit the svg’s code. I didn’t see this particular solution in the forums (maybe it’s there but I didn’t find it) so I thought I’d share.

The solution in my case was to remove the responsive setting when exporting my SVG.

Once I did this the SVG imported at the right scale.

And it’s specifically this setting. The minify setting has no affect on the size.

Here’s a video where I walk through the process of exporting -> importing with the settings that didn’t work and then the settings that did.

I hope this is helpful!
