Figma Import to Vectornator Pro (Mac)
To import a Figma File to Vectornator Pro when you are on Mac, you simply need to access to the "New Document" Section and then click on the Figma button. Then, follow the steps suggested, which are the same one as for the iOS version of Vectornator.
Drag & drop Files to Vectornator
You can import a file in Vectornator using the Files App, or by dragging and dropping it into Vectornator by using the Split View on your iPad.
In Vectornator it’s possible to import any Sketch file by using two different ways:
On iPad, once you saved your .sketch file into Files, hold to access the Sharing Options and then choose "Open In Vectornator".
Or you can simply drag & drop the .sketch file by using the Split View on your iPad.
A gallery where you can have access to the objects you saved.
To create your own templates, select the desired object and tap the + button located at the top right of the Templates Tab. It will save your object to your Templates Library, a section that will be unlocked once you saved your first template. From there you can drag or tap on your templates to insert them into the canvas.
TIP: A cool way to use the Templates, it’s to save your signature logo or a particular group of shapes you like to use and re-use.
A gallery of 80k icons inside Vectornator that can be used in all your projects.
Open the Library Tab, search, tap any icon or drag to insert it.
Note: You’re free to use and edit the icons and use them in your artworks.
You can scroll through your fonts from the Style Tab. This is alphabetically-ordered, so you will find your favorite imported fonts easily.
Import fonts on your iPad
On your iPad, simply swipe left from the Home Screen to get into the Settings and then Tap on the Font Library button.
Tap on the Upload button at the top left corner. Then, go to the folder and pick the fonts you would like to import from whenever you have them stored. Tap on it and you’re done! As simple as that. You can now see your newly added fonts in your Library.
Note: Remember that Vectornator will accept .TTF and .OTF font files. Also, the Zip folders need to be unzipped before they can be imported.
Drag & Drop Fonts
Another method is to open Files in Split View with Vectornator and simply drag and drop the chosen font files directly into the Font Library.
In case you want to remove any of your imported fonts, simply tap on any of your fonts inside the Library and then tap the Delete button at the top left of your screen.
Note: You can select more than one font at a time.
