Ability to import .svg files just like any other vector format (.ai, .pdf, .eps, etc.)
SVG import has been implemented in InDesign 2020. Please upgrade to this version of InDesign to use this feature.

Mark this as "done"

Can we get this feature rolled out yet?
Is this finished?
1. We use SVG for all logos and making a huge product catalogue. All our logos just show up as code instead of the logo. Need this for all our future projects. Thank you!
2.No remodelling in indesign, just the use of svg as I would use any other image format in indesign, to just place it.
3.We need to export just as before, but it need to support svg so that we can see them in exported pdf

How come InDesign in 2019 still doesn't understand SVG? And how come SVG-export was removed, some time ago??? InDesign really ghas to support both actions, i wonder what took you guys @ Adobe so long!?
Oh that's brilliant. I have been hoping for this feature as I create so much vector art in Illustrator that I pull into InDesign.
I'm also using SolidWorks Composer and would very much like to be able to import interactive SVGs with hotspots and BOMs into InDesign. I will publish them as interactive pdf:s.

format svg it's important to fix the layout epub to convert text to svg format because fonts are often a problem when 1 export to epub fix layout . I'm waiting for the latest update. thanks

So great to hear this. I love InDesign.
Justin Putney commented
Add SVG to the list of formats that can be exported as well (and include it as an option in the Object Export Options).
Is this still on the backlog?
Anshul Jain commented
Thanks for the feedback. The feature has been taken up for implementation in next release. We will share more details and take your feedback along the way.
If you publish e-books you must have the possibility to place sag in your publications

I need to use SVG file code in the way QRcode code walks in data merge that may work for me to merging design along with data.
Can I get an idea that will bring indesign snippets with tag mapped by styles and then merged with a data file. I know snippets can not be placed the way image is placed in indesign file but I need a solution seriously.

It shouldn't be that difficult to import basic SVGs. It's really a shame that InDesign cannot handle this graphics format, especially when it already has most of its ingredients (rectangles, ellipses, gradients) available.

So sad InDesign still can't handle SVG :| - Even the Af**nity Alpha can do that... that's kinda sad since - Working with Icon Jar you have to bring every icon into illustrator before bringing it into InDesign. Maybe the two product teams should work together at some points.

To have to go through illustrator is cumbersome. If we could just at least use svg's as a hi-res image, that'd be great.
I use SVGs all the time for personal illustration work (I like to be able to go between illustrator and inkscape) as well as web work. It would be great to not have to maintain duplicate vector files for projects that need print and web components, so having an all SVG workflow would be fantastic.
