工作空间

After tapping the plus button in the gallery, a new drawing will open.

状态栏

Up at the top, you’ll see the Status Bar. From left to right on the bar, you’ll find:

  1. 画廊:点击后会从当前画作返回到画廊内。
  2. Drawing Name. You’re working on the “kitchen” drawing.
  3. Zoom/Angle. This represents the Zoom / Angle of your canvas or the Scale / Rotation of your current selection.
  4. Pro商店:显示您的购买状态、所有能让您的创作提高效率的可购买工具或套装。
  5. Import. You can import images or PDF files.
  6. Export. You can export to JPG, PNG, SVG, DXF, PSD, PDF and .concepts file types.
  7. 设置:点击齿轮状的设置按钮进入工作空间设定、画布选项和压感笔设定。
  8. Help. Tap Help to access your account and find resources like our FAQ and our 24/7 support line Ask Us Anything. We like to talk with you and help you out - it helps us make the app better, too.

工具转轮/栏

状态栏下面是工具转轮,上面包含了8种工具(每个位置都可配置其他工具),还有撤销和重做按钮。

The wheel is movable. If you tap+hold+drag (or click+drag) on the wheel, you’ll find you can drag the wheel about and put it anywhere you’d like on the canvas. Pass the center line and the wheel will switch to left-handed mode.

如果将工具转轮拖到屏幕正中央,将会看到画布布局管理器。将转轮拖到可移动的位置时会发现转轮的位置或形态出现变化。可以将工具转轮更换为竖着的工具栏,颜色及工具预设功能会展开在工具栏内侧。

有些人喜欢菜单按钮更大或更小,以适应他们的手指。您可通过在工具转轮上捏合或展开来调整工具转轮的尺寸。如果您使用的是台式机,将鼠标放在上面上下滑动就可以。

点击工具转轮外圈上的一款工具激活它进行绘图。再次点击该工具可以进入笔刷菜单。在笔刷菜单中我们可以选择不同的技术或艺术型的笔刷。请阅读更多关于笔刷的信息。

工具转轮中心环上的三项设定可以配置当前工具。

  1. 尺寸:使用尺寸滑条可以设定笔刷笔宽。选择上面4个预设值中的任意一个,设定后可以快速切换常用的笔宽。
  2. 不透明度:使用不透明度滑条可以设定笔刷的透明程度。100%是完全不透明的,0%是完全透明。
  3. Smoothing. Use the smoothing slider and presets to set how much “smart” smoothing you’d like your line to have. Smoothing happens after you draw, not during - live smoothing is coming soon.
    0% smoothing gives you the raw stroke straight from your hand input, 50% smoothing takes many of the bumps out for a more polished stroke, and 100% smooths the stroke into a perfectly straight line between start and end points, no matter how wriggly it started.

在工具转轮的中央,我们可以看到当前颜色和笔刷的不透明度。点击这个圆圈显示Copic色轮,Too Corporation的适用于设计和插图的美丽色谱。点击一个颜色选中它。请阅读下面更多颜色信息。

无限大画布

不管是绘制一幅巨图或是缩小打量细节,无限大的画布都能让您的创作收放自如。当然,您也可以选择设定画布大小。

Concepts is equipped with an infinite canvas, which is our way of saying you can extend your paper in any direction you need it, as far as you need it to go. Pan around using two fingers normally, or one finger while using the Pan tool. If you’re using a stylus, you can set your Finger Action to pan around as well, which makes navigating while drawing more convenient.

To zoom in and out, or to rotate the canvas, use a two finger pinch / spread gesture. Lines stay sharp no matter how far you go - one of the many benefits of a vector-based platform. You'll notice there are "zoom steps" at certain zoom points (10%, 25%, 50%, 100%) which help you find standard sizes and rotations by feel.

你也可在画布右上角点击缩放数值手动输入数值来调整缩放或旋转级别。

如果在画布上迷路了(无限大的画布真的很大),可以双击缩放区域,会返回到开始绘图的地方。

Of course, you can add a predefined boundary or artboard to your infinite canvas, too. Just go to the Settings menu and define your custom size or choose from the popular choices.

撤消/重做

万一你需要撤销重做,就可以使用撤销和重做按钮。这两个按钮在工具转轮最外面一环上,如果是工具列形态就在该工具列下面。

在画布上两指轻按可以撤销操作,属于常用设定。我们甚至听设计师们说可惜真实纸张上无法使用两指轻按来撤销操作。

如果撤销过了,可以使用三指轻按重做或使用工具转轮上的重做按钮。

But you might not use Undo / Redo as much as you think. Concepts is a vector-based app, which means you can Select and adjust any line or delete it entirely whenever you want. This is a selective way to alter your sketch (no pun intended) without being limited to the last strokes you made. We think you'll prefer it.

图层

Finally on the main canvas, you’ll see the Layers menu. This is also movable. Just tap+hold+drag the Layers button to anywhere on the canvas you’d like it. Read more about Layers below.

使用压感笔

Concepts is at its best with a stylus, though it works with a mouse on PCs with Android or Chrome OS installed. Currently Concepts is optimized for working with the Pixelbook Pen and Samsung S-Pen. We do not have official support for other styli, but you may find that they work regardless. If you have devices you’d like us to optimize for, please let us know.
