Serif DrawPlus is a vector graphic program. DrawPlus X8 released in 2015 was the last version, replaced with the new Affinity software. DrawPlus saves its documents as .DPP (Drawing) , .DPX (Template) or .DPA (Animation) files (for Stopframe and Keyframe animation modes).[1] Drawplus X3 and above can also export into a Serif MetaFile (.SMF) format.[2][3]
