SVG is short for Scalable Vector Graphics which is an XML-based format especially used for vector-based designs. While it can be quite difficult to import these designs in WordPress.

However; with Elementor, there is a solution to import SVGs to your WordPress so that you can use them further in your content. In this tutorial, we will understand how to import SVG Format icons in Elementor.

How To Import Adobe Illustrator SVG Format Icons

To begin, ensure that your Elementor compliant SVG does not contain any text or lines. If there are any, they should be outlined, and any strokes should be extended.

To keep it simple, you can only have paths and complex pathways for optimal Elementor option compatibility. If there is text in there, turn it to outlines before exporting.

  2. Make class names unique to avoid clash with other Illustrator produced SVGs.
  3. If your SVG contains text, select Convert to Outlines from the 'Font' menu.
  4. For Styling, choose Internal CSS.
  5. For the SVG, choose Unique from the Object IDs choices.
