Get SVG Code from Path


“Get SVG Code from Path” is a paths utility script using the JSON Action Manager scripting library.

This stand-alone script written in JavaScript allows you to get SVG code from any currently selected path in the Paths palette. It opens a dialog box with a text field containing the SVG code of the path; you can copy and/or save the generated SVG text.

The script displays SVG code in the same format than the SVG files generated by the script Convert Custom Shapes File to SVG Set. In fact, it makes use of a temporary custom shapes file containing only one shape defined from the current path.
