Trying to save a simple SVG from a basic text photoshop image. As soon as I select SVG as the type, it hits "Processing" and then does nothing. On a Macbook Pro 2015, running OSX 10.11 El Capitan.

This is also an issue for me. MBP 2015 with OSX 10.11 as well. Hangs forever.

I have a similar problem on a desktop Windows 10, though for me the problem is that when I click export, the SVG/image is exported straight away, but Photoshop then seems to freeze for a good 30-60 seconds and you are not able to continue doing anything in Photoshop during this time. You can do what you like with the SVG image (open, use, edit, delete).

CPU usage jumps from near 0-1% up to 10% and maintains, so assuming there is some end function that gets caught in an infinite loop and doesn't kill properly.

Also, when accessing the 'Export as' pane, when you click 'cancel' Photoshop does the same thing (hangs), and in this instance it often it does not recover at all, and Photoshop has to be force-quit and restarted, potentially losing work.

Same with me. Windows 10. Just trying to export. All I get is "Processing".
