Hello Steve,
I do this frequently and the following  work-around works for me.

Save Selection As (EPS)

I import the EPS into a SVG drawing program (I use skencil) and then
edit over the top of the imported eps.

When saving the selection, I use options to turn off embedding of tiff
preview in the options.

The eps is device independent.

Hope this works for you.
