Gravit Designer discussion

Exported SVGs can't be imported to Canva

For the life of me I can’t figure this out.

I can make a design with shapes, text, paths, etc., and export it as an SVG and Canva will say “Upload Error” and that there is either a file incompatibility or a file corruption. I can take this same gravit file, export as PDF, import into Illustrator, and export it as an SVG which Canva has no problems with.

I’ve only ever had this issue with Gravit, and I don’t know if it is a setting or a bug, but it is extremely frustrating. I can’t keep using this program if I can’t use the SVGs it exports, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @ArchElmo,

I’ve created this: https://share.getcloudapp.com/NQu7g1Kj on Gravit and imported it on Canva without any issues. https://share.getcloudapp.com/bLudjwkd

Before exporting, right-click and convert to path. Maybe you are trying to export effects or compound objects (which are not supported by the SVG format).

Or maybe contact Canva support, they can tell you what is wrong with the file.

@ArchElmo Did it work? (after you converted to path and exported it again).
