Import/Export

Import

You can open/import raster and vector files to work in Gravit Designer

Besides Gravit’s own file format (.gvdesign), vectors can be brought as SVG files (.svg), EPS files (.eps), Adobe Illustrator (.ai), PDF files (.pdf) and Sketch files until version 49 (.sketch). Raster images can be imported as PNG files (.png) and JPEG files (.jpeg).

Note: importing AI and EPS files is an exclusive Gravit Designer PRO feature

Open Files

To open a vector or raster file in the new document, head over to File>Open file… or use the shortcut  / CTRL + O.

Open File

This method creates a new document. You can now navigate through your documents by selecting a tab on top.

Separate document when open

When you are done editing AI, EPS, PDF or SVG file, you can’t write the changes into the same file. You need to either export them rewriting the file or save it in proprietary file format.

Save dialog box

Import Files

To place the file on the canvas, use the import command. Head over to File/Import/Place Image… to place an image inside the existing document.

Tip: you can drop images on the canvas in Gravit Designer
