What is a VECTORNATOR file?

A VECTORNATOR file is a drawing created by Linearity Vectornator, a vector graphic designing application. It stores an artboard with one or more layers and may include text, shapes, and pen and brush strokes. VECTORNATOR files also contain drawing metadata, such as artboard dimensions and image resolution.

Graphic designers primarily use Linearity Vectornator to design icons, logos, GUI mockups, print designs, digital typography, and other vector illustrations. When a user saves a drawing in Vectornator, the application creates a VECTORNATOR file to store the illustration.

NOTE: Vectornator is now known as Curve, which saves users' drawings as .CURVE files. While VECTORNATOR files and CURVE files use different file extensions, they use the same file format.
