Organizing your designs

Documents

Documents are all about how you create, save and store your designs in Gravit Designer. Every document is a single file, that has its own name, size, and format. Gravit has its own file format .gvdesign, indicated by Gravit Designer official logo.

Documents on the hard drive

To learn more about supported Gravit Designer file formats, please, read vector and bitmap article.

All created or opened documents have the same user interface.

You can create, edit, and open multiple documents in Gravit Designer. To navigate through multiple documents, select the tab on the top-right of the interface just near the profile picture.

New documents that you haven’t saved yet are shown as untitled-1, untitled-2, untitled-3 and so on.

You can close the document by clicking the close icon within the tab next to the document’s title.

Files synchronised to the Cloud show the Cloud logo right next to it.

The arrow icon right next to the user profile picture shows a dropdown containing all the opened files. If there are many tabs opened and not all of them can be shown on the tabs bar anymore, you can find them all on this dropdown.

The tabs can also be rearranged by clicking and dragging.

If there are some changes you haven’t saved yet, Gravit will show the Save pop-up panel.
