Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting assets to SVG, part of Sketch Essential Training: The Basics (2015).
- Now we'll take a look at exporting artwork…to the SVG format, and we'll even open…the resulting SVG in a text editor,…just to take a look at what Sketch is generating.…So in my large art board here,…I'll close up the Layer groups here,…then I'll open up Header.…Let's select the Everyday things group.…Now, this is all of the characters…that we converted to outlines earlier in the course.…Let's come in here and let's first rename this.…We'll just name this Logo, then press Return.…And then, with this group selected,…let's come down to the Inspector panel,…let's click the plus sign to Make Exportable,…and let's come down here and let's choose the SVG format.…
Once I choose this, the scaling option goes away…because SVG is a vector-based format…and can be scaled to any size in the browser.…We can, however, come in here…and add a suffix, if we want to.…And now we have two different versions of our logo.…When we get to the really small screens,…we change the composition from being stacked…to being horizontal.…So up here, in the canvas, I'm going to hold my space bar,…
