Introduction

Quickstart

How to use

You can start using Gravit Designer right in your browser or download appropriate desktop version.

In the Browser

To use Gravit Designer online point your browser to designer.gravit.io and start designing. Use the latest Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Safari for the best experience.

Progressive Web Application (PWA)

PWA allows you to run Gravit Designer as a desktop-like application right from your browser, no download or extensive installation required.

The PWA works in the latest versions of Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Once you are in the web version you can install Gravit Designer as a Progressive web app (PWA) from File > Install to Desktopor by clicking on the + icon in the address bar.

After confirming the installation, Gravit Designer is opened in a separate window and can now be found in Chrome apps (after entering chrome://apps in the address bar).

Besides the desktop-like feeling, the main advantage of the PWA is that it can be fully used offline (PRO subscription required). Furthermore, the PWA is kept up-to-date automatically.

Note: Currently, the PWA has the same limitations like Browser version, but we are already working hard to bring the other features you are used to from the regular desktop app to the PWA too, like system fonts and saving right to your local file system (currently, you just have the File → Download option).

Download & Install desktop versions

You can always download the latest version of Gravit Designer from our site designer.io.

Chose your operating system and click on the appropriate icon. Once the installer is downloaded just start it and follow the instruction on screen.

Note: For Windows OS we have an alternative Portable version and for Linux, we provide a Snap package as well.

Windows portable version features:

  • single executable file, no installation needed
  • works from a USB stick
  • runs without needing admin permissions to install (good for locked-down corporate computers)

You can also install the Chrome extension on every platform.

Note: In order to start using Gravit Designer, you must first create a free account.
