Objects are all the elements that have representation in the Layers panel and on canvas (including groups, symbols, lines, and shapes). Sometimes referred to as Layers.
Every single object in Gravit Designer can have these properties
The main advantage of vector objects is that they can be scaled infinitely, without any loss of quality or fidelity while keeping the file size small. (See the more in-depth chapter about differences between vector and raster graphics here)
