Gravit Designer PRO

Frequently Asked Questions

When logging in or signing up for a new Gravit account, everybody is entering into the trial version of Gravit Designer PRO. This allows you to try all the PRO features for a short period of time. You can see how much days are left in your trial in the yellow countdown banner on the bottom-right.

After the trial is over, you transition into Gravit Designer, our free version. The PRO features are not available in Gravit Designer.  Please see the comparison table below. You can use Gravit Designer for as long as you want without any costs. If you want to keep using the PRO features after the trial expires, you need to buy a subscription.

Q:  What happens after the trial period of Gravit Designer PRO is over?

There’s no need to activate your PRO version. After you purchase a subscription, you will automatically be using the PRO version and have access to all of the PRO features. You'll know your subscription has been successfully activated when you see Gravit Designer PRO on the welcome screen (“Help → Show welcome screen” in the menu bar), but don’t see the yellow countdown banner on the bottom-right. Please refer to this screenshot. When you see both, you are still in trial. 

Q:  How can I activate Gravit Designer PRO?

If you are an existing user, you won’t see much difference to the Gravit Designer you are used to. However, starting with version 3.5 we began adding PRO features exclusive only to Gravit Designer PRO. These features are not available in the free version. With the introduction of Gravit Designer PRO, some features previously available in the free version are now only available in PRO . Please see the full feature comparison table below.

Q:  I've subscribed to Gravit Designer PRO but I don't see any difference.

It is only available as a yearly plan.

Q:  Is Gravit Designer PRO also available as a monthly plan or a perpetual license?

Please reach out to the Cleverbridge support team, they can help you update your details.

Q:  I’ve bought Gravit Designer PRO, how can I change my billing details?

Yes! Please contact us at our support team and provide a confirmation that you are working for an educational institution or are engaging with education in another way.

Q:  I’m a teacher or working for another educational institution. Can we get a discount?

Definitely! We believe in the power of design and how it can transform the world. In this sense, we would love to support you in your efforts. Please contact our support team and include a link to your portfolio. Even if you don’t have have a portfolio yet we’d love to hear from you!

Q:  I’m an aspiring designer or want to start out as a designer, is there a special price available?

PRO subscribers can use the application without an active internet connection at full volume. However, every fifteen days it checks to see if you have an active subscription and you need to connect to the internet for that.

Even if you are using free Gravit Designer you don’t need to worry about a loss of your internet connection. In this case, you can still download your files as a backup. 

Q:  How does the offline mode of Gravit Designer work?

When you are close to consuming 500 MB you will get a notification that lets you delete old files. As soon as you have used all your available space you can’t save any new designs until delete old files and fall below the limit.

Q:  What happens if I run out of Cloud space as a user of the free version?

They won’t be deleted. If you have used more than the 500 MB, you will only be able to save to the Cloud again once you delete files and fall below the limit. 

Q:  What happens to my files saved to the Gravit Cloud when my PRO subscription runs out?

Q:  How does version history work?

In Gravit Designer, you only have access to basic features of symbols, which means you can set up a symbol and create instances of it – but you can’t modify these instances. In Gravit Designer PRO you can modify these for ultimate flexibility. Another feature only available in PRO is the ability to nest symbols into symbols, letting you create a symbol for the toolbar of a mobile UI for example, and in this instance nest all the icons, which themselves are symbols again. You can read more about symbols in this article.

Q:  What are the advanced symbol features?

In Gravit Designer PRO, you have File → Export → Export… in the menu bar, which shows the export dialog where you have advanced options, such as the ability to define the size of elements (up to 300dpi or @2x for example), set the background color or have advanced web development options like the ability to retain attributes and add IDs. These options are only available in Gravit Designer PRO. In the free version you can export to all file formats (PNG, JPG, PDF, and SVG) with default options.

Q:  What are the advanced export options or additional web development options?

Any other questions? Please reach out to our support team.

Yes, the desktop applications on all system are available to all users. The only limitation is that they can’t be used offline. For that, a Gravit Designer PRO subscription is necessary. 

Q:  Can I use the desktop applications with the free version of Gravit Designer?

Yes, you can use it for as long as you want, no matter if for private or commercial projects. This also includes the assets you find in Gravit Designer (web fonts, libraries, and templates). Have fun! :)

Q:  Can I use the free version of Gravit Designer without any costs?

Your PRO trial will automatically change to the free version Gravit Designer without any costs after the trial period is over. If you still want to cancel the trial, you need to delete your user account. Please have a look at this video.
