Fantastic Basic SVG Editor


Boxy SVG is a super tool to have on hand - especially at under $10.
Are there more expensive vector tools out there, with more features? YEP, but some are old and out of date, some are bulky and resource hogs, and some require you to sign-up for an online account to save locally on your Mac… Boxy SVG does what it’s designed to do, and it does so extremely well. I’ve used it to create quick logos, design vector shapes to import into 3D printing design tools, and create designs for vinyl cutting. If you are looking for a fast SVG tool, look no further!

My favorite SVG editor


I’ve been using Boxy SVG for over half a year now. I just make icons for my app: nothing too advanced, but I needed a good editor and it turns out that was pretty hard to find. I tried out a few apps before settling on this one, which in my opinion was significantly better and more user friendly. Normally I don’t leave reviews, but almost every week I see an update to the app that makes it better and better so I wanted to thank the dev for his efforts. You’re doing a great job!

Just better text control


Everything is awesome, but I would like little bit control over text.
At least when I press Enter it brake line.

Developer Response

Boxy SVG version 3.12.0 now allows you to insert a line break with Enter key. I also added a slider to "Typography" panel that allows you to control line spacing.

This version also adds support for manual glyph positioning using the "Edit" tool.
