The Inspector

In the Inspector, you’ll find the controls for the tool you’re working with. You can view and edit properties of selected objects as well as layers, artboards, import options and more.

The Inspector Bar

The Inspector Bar is always visible at the top right corner of your iPad screen and can be expanded or collapsed anytime by simply tapping on each Tab icon: Style, Arrange, Path, Layers, and Import.

Style Tab

The Style Tab is considered to be the main tab in Vectornator where all styling functions reside from Fill (1), Stroke (2) and Shadow (3) options to Blend Modes, Arrows, Blur and more.

Content Aware Options

The style tab is content aware. This means that it adapts according to the selected object. For example, selecting a text box will reveal text options. Selecting an image will reveal Auto Trace settings and so on.


Arrange Tab

The Arrange Tab manages the position, scale, size, rotation (1), grouping (2), flipping (3), order (4), alignment (5), distribution (6) of your objects and other cool options (7) about transformation.

Path Tab

The Path Tab is the go to solution to edit and modify paths. It houses options like Boolean, Masking and more complex functions like outlining a path or anchor points.

Layers Tab

The Layers Tab is the place to go to manage all your layers and objects inside your document.

Additionally, the Layers Tab also manages your Artboards (B).

Here, you can create a new layer (A), multi select, show/hide, lock/unlock, duplicate, delete and rename your artboards, layers and objects.

Import Tab

This tab is divided in 3 panels which are:

1) Templates where you can create and store your own vector library,

2) Photos where you can insert images from your camera roll and

3) Iconator library which offers more than 80K icons to use in your designs.

4) Unsplash: A library with millions of free images provided by Unsplash.com.

Sliders

Tap anywhere on the slider and start sliding right or left with your finger or the mouse to change the value.

TIP: For higher precision while sliding, move your finger down, away from the slider to change the value more slowly.

Keypad

With a single tap on any slider a keypad will open allowing you to enter values numerically.

With the keypad, you can tap on any numerical value in Vectornator and you will be able to manually change it with a few simple taps.

Tap the enter key to submit your value. Tap again outside the keypad to dismiss.
