Mac Artboards

Mac Artboards

Artboards allow you to create separate frames or pages of your design without needing to switch documents.

You can use Artboards to create separate frames or pages of your design at the same time. This is useful for a variety of projects, including web design. In Vectornator, Artboards work similar to a layer, with the main difference being that they are represented on the canvas as fixed frames.

Adding a new Artboard

In Vectornator there are three different ways to add a new Artboard into your document: clicking once, holding and drawing, or using a preset template.

To access these options in the Artboard Panel, you need to first click the <key>+<key button at the top of the Layers Tab and then select New Artboard.

As soon as you click the button, a suggestion box will appear at the top center of the Canvas, which reads: “Tap or draw anywhere to create Artboard”.

Adding a new Artboard by clicking

Once you have clicked the Artboard icon, you can click anywhere on the canvas. This will create a new Artboard with the same dimensions as the previous one.

Adding a new Artboard by drawing

With the Artboard Panel active, draw a new Artboard by simply clicking and dragging anywhere on the canvas.

Adding a new Artboard using a Template

The Artboard Panel will be displayed on the right of the interface once you click the New Artboard button. Here you have access to:

A - The Template Category dropdown menu

B - The Direction toggle which allows you to invert the document's width and height.

C - The Templates List with its Title and size of the board.

To create a new Artboard using a standard size, simply click on one of the templates. By scrolling through this section you will find all the different template formats divided per categories: Devices, Resolutions, Paper Formats, Social Media, and Icons.

Note: You can’t create overlapping Artboards in Vectornator.

Selecting an Artboard

Any Artboard can be selected by clicking the Artboard’s borders or its title. Alternatively, you can open the Layers Tab and click on an Artboard’s name. The selected Artboard will immediately be displayed.

Note: In Vectornator, it’s not yet possible to select more than one Artboard at once.

Renaming an Artboard

You can rename any Artboard in the same way that you rename layers. Navigate to the Layers Tab and click on the Artboard’s name to enter the Edit mode. Then, type your new Artboard's title.

Deleting an Artboard

Right-click on the Artboard's Title to access specific options as Delete, Copy, Paste, and Duplicate.

Moving the Artboard

To move an Artboard, and all the layers it contains, click on the Artboard title in the canvas, and drag and drop it to where you would like to have it.

Switching between Artboard

You can quickly jump between Artboards by simply clicking on its title either on the canvas or in the Layers Tab.

Resizing the Artboard

Select the Artboard (1) you want to change and open the Inspector.

At the top of the Style Tab, the Artboard Size panel (2) will show up automatically.

By clicking the Width and Height fields, you will have the possibility to directly define the width (W) and height (H) of your Artboard. Simply click on it and the keypad will show up.

You can also resize the board by clicking and dragging the border.

Duplicating the Artboard

You can now duplicate Artboards using <key>CMD+C<key> + <key>CMD+V<key> or using the top bar copy-paste options.

Moving elements between Artboard

Select the element on your Artboard. Then, open the Layers Tab. Finally, drag and drop your element from Artboard 1 to Artboard 2.

Printing Artboards

You can also print your different Artboards directly from Vectornator.
