Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are vector graphics?

A:Unlike bitmap photo images, vector graphics are defined using geometrical primitives such as lines, curves, and shapes.  Vector graphics have the benefit of being scalable without losing clarity.

Q: Is Vector Studio going to be available on the Mac or Linux?

A: No, Vector Studio will only support Windows for the foreseeable future.

Q: How do I save or open a file?

A: Click on the orb on the top left corner of the program to bring up the file menu.  All operations that can be done to a file are grouped on this menu.  Or you could press Alt+F on the keyboard to bring up the file menu.

Known Issues

  • Vector Studio can crash when using certain local fonts that are in an invalid font format.
  • Unable to click select invisible elements that contain no fill or stroke.  They can be selected using the select all, invert selection and select by brush commands.
  • Under Windows XP Vector Studio can not be started without an internet connection.
  • Network mode stays enabled after network connection is lost, so you may get errors if you lose internet access while Vector Studio is running and then use the online services.
  • Combine geometry commands that are used with flat lines may produce unexpected geometries.
