How Do I Export SVG From Figma to Illustrator?

Exporting SVG (scalable vector graphics) from Figma to Illustrator is a great way to create and share vector-based artwork across multiple platforms. Vector artwork is resolution independent, meaning it can be resized indefinitely without sacrificing quality.

This makes it ideal for printing and digital display, such as websites and mobile apps. With Figma, you can easily export SVG files and use them in Adobe Illustrator. Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Select the Artwork
The first step is to select the artwork from your Figma canvas that you want to export as an SVG file. You can do this by clicking on the layer or group of layers in the Layers panel that contains your artwork. Alternatively, you can use the Selection tool (the arrow icon at the top of your screen) to select individual elements from your canvas.

Step 2: Export Your SVG File
Once you’ve selected your artwork, go to File > Export > SVG. This will open a dialog box where you can name your file, specify its output size, and choose other settings such as background color and artboard borders. When you’re done, click Export SVG at the bottom of the dialog box to save your file.

Step 3: Import Your SVG File into Illustrator
Now that you’ve exported your SVG file from Figma, open up Adobe Illustrator and go to File > Import > Place.. (or simply drag-and-drop the file into Illustrator). This will place your vector artwork into a new layer in Illustrator – ready for further editing or resizing as necessary.


Exporting SVGs from Figma is an easy way to transfer vector artwork between different programs – allowing you to quickly create high-quality designs for print or digital display. With just a few simple steps, you can export SVGs from Figma and import them into Adobe Illustrator for further editing or resizing as necessary.
