Features of Gravit designer
gravity designer allows import of sketches, design models, transformations and more, and it even allows you to export PDF files, IVS files and high quality images using slices and various features.
Also has support for layers, pages and smart objects. Your documents can have multiple pages, and you can view several at the same time.
Pages can inherit characteristics from a master page, which is useful when working on a project with many pages that requires a consistent format.
When selecting an object, a text box, a circle, or any drawn element, Gravit designer allows you to use transformation tools to adjust its position, resize it, and even group it with other elements.
Objects can be selected by right-clicking anywhere in the drawing area.
A distinctive feature of gravit is the toolbar at the bottom that changes depending on the selected tool (similar to the "Tool Options" dialog box in Gimp).
This is the contextual approach promoted by the Gravit developers. It is intended to reduce clutter and hide unnecessary options from the screen, as you cannot work with more than one tool at a time anyway.
The number of options visible here depends on the tool you are using. Most of them are represented by small icons.
Some buttons, such as the "Color Picker," open their own somewhat small but feature-rich windows.
For now, Gravit can save your projects in its own format (.gravit) or export them to PNG and JPG. PDF, support for other popular vector graphics formats is planned in future releases.
Gravit is stable, even in the browser, but the "Export" option can still sometimes crash the application when exporting from large formats.
