Using Adobe Illustrator, you can convert your SVG 1.0 or 1.1 to SVG 1.2 format. To ensure that the trademark image has a square aspect ratio, the height/width of the SVG image (artboard in Illustrator) must be same. The following steps show how to achieve this in Illustrator.

1. Select " Edit Artboards " in the " Properties " tab
