Organizing your designs


Documents are how you create, save and store your designs in Corel Vector. Every document is a single file, that has its own name, size, and format. Corel Vector has its own file format .gvdesign, indicated by Corel Vector icon.

Documents on the hard drive

To learn more about supported file formats by Corel Vector, see the vector and bitmap article.

All documents that you create or open have the same user interface.

You can create, edit, and open multiple documents in Corel Vector. To navigate through multiple documents, select the tab on the top-right of the interface next to 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 (x) within the tab next to the document’s title.

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

Clicking the arrow next to the user profile picture displays a drop-down containing all the opened files. If there are more tabs opened than can be shown on the tabs bar, you can find them all in this dropdown.

The tabs can also be rearranged by clicking and dragging.

If there are some changes you haven’t saved yet, Corel Vector displays the Save pop-up panel.
