Con Can't export your site for deployment unless you pay.
Not unreasonable, but something users should know before investing their time.
Con Design tool is web-based, not a proper application.
The site doesn't state this explicitly.
Con Fixed media queries
Webflow has four fixed breakpoints (desktop, laptop, mobile landscape & mobile portrait). The inability to set your own media queries can be limiting. If your layout breaks outside of these four options, you have to export the code and write them yourself.
Con No longer offically licenced with a GPLv3+ version
In 2014 Quasado released Gravit.io having dual licensing: GNU GPLv3+ or a commercial license. This effectively made Gravit.io opensource, when they transitioned to "Gravit designer" they essentially dropped GPLv3+ license.
You can still get the GPLv3+ licensed version of Gravit.io here: https://github.com/OliBridgman/gravit
You can read the GPLv3+ licensing here: https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html
Con Too simple
If you have used vector illustration software for 10 years or more, you may find Gravit Designer too simple and confusing. Trade in your oil paints and brushes for Legos simple.
Con No integration into the system
It uses it own theme and icons.
Con Very little information
Official sources do not provide a lot information about the program.
Con Pro Subscription
Gravit's many basic features are now included in Pro Subscription. Font Import, Bezigon, Swatches and various Blending Modes fall in Pro Subscription now.

Sometimes Gravit Designer can randomly duplicate your files, causing you to waste a large amount of time trying to find the right one.
