Bug Description

Very often I use both options and is fairly annoying when every time I need a new set of different output directory, because I prefer a different subdirectory for gerber files and svg files that describe the assembly of parts. For some reason, export to SVG has been separated as a distinct, anyway very useful functionality, but not completed because this one issue.
It would be nice if it was possible to fix it.

BTW. It'll be very clear, that paste, soldermask layers elements in SVG export have different colors than copper (lighter), and each other.
