How and where can I export an osm map into a svg file so that it's usable in adobe illustrator? The original export-tab with these options seems to have been changed.

The original export tab has largely moved to the "share" button on the right, but that was never suitable for generating AI-compatible SVG. You will need to install a program called Maperitive and use that to generate your SVG. Type "Illustrator" in the search box above for more.

Maperitive is only available for PC. I haven't seen one that you can download on a Mac. Any answers?
