All your Vectornator files are stored locally on your iPad and iPhone. That's why we strongly recommend always to backup your VN files before deleting the App. This is a very important step in order not to lose any of your files. So if you delete the app, your files will be erased too.
Your .vectornator files are saved in this folder by default: Apple Files App > On My iPad > Vectornator > drawings.
The Timelapse feature in Vectornator has some limitations as:
- After 10000 actions, the Undo history will be cleared out and you won't be able to export the video too.
- When the Undo history reaches 25 MB on iPhone, 45 MB on iPad and 140 MB on macOS, the video can no longer be exported. (Please consider that these are approx values, it depends on the actions you take, e.g. you paste some heavy file as an image into the artboard)
- You have the Optimized Mode enabled, which does not allow to save undo history once you exit the session.

Currently, iCloud syncing is not available with Vectornator and Vectornator Pro.
We know that this might be an incredible opportunity for restoring your files after a problem occurred while using the app and making your life easier across the entire Apple ecosystem, but we also know that it could rapidly consume your entire iCloud Storage. Given that, we're investigating the possibility of iCloud synching in the nearly future.
For now, you can import and export from/to iCloud Drive from all of your devices (iPhone, iPad, Mac). Simply tap on Export > Files > iCloud or Save in your iCloud folder from Mac.
