CVS (Canvas 3 Drawing File)

The CVS Vector image file format

The CVS file extension was used in early versions of the drawing program Canvas. Canvas is used for creating and designing technical illustrations. Even though the original program is, by now, deprecated and not supported by modern Mac computers anymore, the files can still be viewed today.
