Gvdesign: The Ultimate Guide to Gravit Designer Files

New graphics software continues to dot the graphics design landscape, and one of the latest entrants is Gvdesign. If you’re into creating social media graphics, presentations, cards, cover pages, posters, and any other graphic documents, you may consider using Gvdesign files.

What is a Gvdesign file?

A Gvdesign file contains vector image designs created by Gravit Designer, the native vector graphics software for handling this file format. The file stores images and their design settings, including document units and page sizes. Common document units you need to keep in mind include picas, pixels, and inches, among others.

Gvdesign is the primary file format associated with Gravit Designer, so you can expect Gravit-related tools, such as Gravit Klex, to open documents created from this file type. To create a Gvdesign file, go to File, select New Design, or New Design from Template. Select Save, or Save to File, to complete the action.

This innovative vector graphics software is available for download on most platforms, most notably, Windows, Linux, MacOS, and Chrome OS. You can also download it as a web program residing on your Chrome, Safari, Firefox or Edge browser.

When it comes to saving Gvdesign files in the web version of the software, you can choose the Gravit Cloud, or download it to your device. You’ll find these options on the File menu in Gravit Designer. You can also export your Gravit designs to other formats, such as PDF, JPG, PNG, SVGZ, and SVG.
