Concepts 2022.7 for Android

July 2022 Update

Add text labels, group selections and more in Concepts 2022.7 for Android.

Concepts 2022.7 for Android adds the Text tool for short labels and annotations, allows you to group items in a selection, configure tap + hold options, register and use Sign In with Apple, improves snap performance and many other smaller updates.

The details:

  • Use the Text tool to add labels and titles to your drawings. This update puts the Text tool on par with the iOS version, where text is limited to a single font and best suited for short labels, but we hear your requests for more options and will address those in a future update.
  • You can now group items in a selection together by tapping the four squares icon in the selection popup. Once grouped, selecting one of the items will select them all.
  • In the Settings screen you will find an option to configure what happens with a Tap & Hold gesture. You can turn it off by setting it to Do Nothing, or configure it to do something other than the default Selection tool, like the Color Picker.
  • If you have created a Concepts account on iOS using Sign In with Apple, you can now sign into that account on Windows.
  • When you carefully position a selection and then release your stylus or finger and the selection moves... we've fixed it so it now stays where you put it.

Our Precision updates are nearly complete, and we’re now focused on Measurement & Scale. If you'd like to see what's coming next, check out our Roadmap featuring past and future milestones.
