Create and edit icons, banners, charts, illustrations, and other similar content with the help of this well-designed and useful SVG editor
When it comes to SVG editors there are a lot of awesome choices out there. Apps such as Adobe’s Illustrator, Sketch, and Inkscape have been the go-to picks for web designers and web developers for years on end.
One of the best SVG editors out there
However, there’s a “new kid” in town ready to prove its worth and it goes by the name of Boxy SVG.
The project’s main goal is to offer a valid alternative to all those popular apps mentioned above, as well as to make editing icons, banners, charts, and illustrations feel like a breeze for beginners without compromising on the feature department.
Boxy SVG’s feature set detailed
For starters, it’s worth noting that the app employs a Chromium-based rendering engine, which makes it ideal for editing content that will eventually find its way into the latest desktop and mobile web browsers.
It has extensive support for on-canvas editing of geometrical objects, and it’s also quite good when it comes to painting and transforming the objects in question.
The fonts library is also quite extensive boasting hundreds of free fonts (provided by Google Fonts). Furthermore, if you want more, you can easily embed WOFF, WOFF2, TTF, and OTF font files from your own computer.
Because workflow is an important element for any web designer, Boxy SVG has 100 commands with customizable keyboard shortcuts.
Other noteworthy features include the support for various path operations (unite, intersect, subtract, exclude, close, reverse, and so forth), as well as all the basic arrangement operations such as align to, rotate, flip, order, and group, just to name a few.
Last but not least, the app allows you to save your work to formats such as SVG and SVGZ, as well as PNG, JPG, WebP, PDF, and HTML5.
All in all, Boxy SVG is a modern, well-designed, and feature-packed SVG editor that should appeal to a wide range of web designers looking for a good alternative to some of the more popular apps in the industry. It looks and feels exactly like a modern app of this sort should.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used Boxy SVG and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
