I have several .svg files that I want to use as symbols in ArcMap 10.1.
However, I do not see any import feature or the sort to use these .svg pictures.
To bring an .emf into ArcMap do the following: select 'Customize' on the top menu bar --> 'Style Manager' --> select the profile that you want to add the icon to --> select 'Marker Symbols' folder --> in the window for that folder right-click and select 'New' --> 'Marker Symbol --> from the 'Type' drop down in the window that has opened select 'Picture Marker Symbol' --> navigate to your .emf file
I have found that making a font file is the best way to bring in custom svg symbol. I use Fontographer to add the SVG symbols to the font, set different scales, etc. You can also use websites such as https://glyphter.com/ to make fonts.
