Let us import/export to nvg and import svg in ArcGIS for Desktop.

It would be great if support for NVG was added to Desktop, I have had users asking for support for NVG to feature class. If you are interested take a look at my post on the forums.

I have a prototype python tool for loading NVG into feature classes.

Sorry for negative vote, I make a mistake, I don't find any place to change for a positive.

I agree that NVG format could be as native format in ArcGIS Desktop.

@DaveBarrett  thanks for your prototype script, any updates on it or updated versions. reason i ask is that  i have some .NVG files that dont convert. some error regarding line 65

I saw some activity here so wanted to note that ArcGIS Pro supports SVG (not NVG): https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/help/mapping/layer-properties/scalable-vector-graphics-supp...
