Vectornator Essential Tips and Tricks
Welcome to our essential tips and tricks! In this article we explore the latest and greatest tips and tricks about our latest 2.0 release that will help you work and design better and faster on Vectornator!
1. Show / Hide Inspector
Slide from the right side of the screen to reveal the last opened inspector tab. Slide the title bar of the inspector away to hide the inspector.
2. Precision Sliders
We designed our new sliders with a new precision sliding feature. Move your finger away (above or below the slider) while sliding, to move slower and more accurately on the slider. Now you can set your desired value much more precisely!
3. Gradient Editor
A. Simply tap on an empty area in the gradient editor to add a new color point. Slide a color point away to delete.
B. Double tap in the middle of the gradient editor to distribute color points.
C. Slide across the middle area of the gradient editor to flip the color points.
D. Drag a gradient handle on the canvas to change the position and angle of a gradient.
Our new compass is a beautiful new indicator which shows you the current zoom state and rotation on your canvas, tapping once on the compass will reset your zoom and rotation back to default.
A. To select multiple objects, tap the plus button next to the selection tool on the toolbar and start selecting your objects.
B. To select layers or sublayers, apply a long swipe across the layer from any side. Long swipe a selected layer again to deselect.
C. While the selection tool is active, tap the duplicate button to enable duplicate mode. Now you can drag any object to create a duplicate of it.
D. While drawing or resizing objects, hold the canvas with a second finger in order to lock the aspect ratio of the shape. Now you can resize while maintaining the aspect ratio, and draw perfect circles, squares and more.
6. Your Own Template Library
To create your own templates, select the desired object and press the plus button located on top of the templates tab. It will save your object to your templates library. From there you can drag or tap on your templates to insert them into your canvas.
7. Change Node Type
A. In the node selection tool, double tap on a node to change type. This way you can easily switch between flat and asymmetrical node handles.
B. If you want to have disconnected node handles, start dragging a node handle and hold the canvas with a second finger to disconnect the handles. Now both handles move independently from one another.
