图层

Concepts comes equipped with a fully adjustable set of layers to help you design as flexibly as you need. Enjoy five layers if you’re a free user, or infinite layers as a Pro. Some of our architects have over a hundred layers in a drawing as they create iterations for clients, and many of our illustrators are a close match.

图层分层有手动和自动两种。点击图层列表上方的“自动”或“手动”进行切换。

  • Automatic layering is the default and sorts your layers by tool type. Any time you switch to a different tool, it will draw on its namesake layer. (Note that fountain pen and pen share a layer, as do soft and hard pencils.) This is great for sketchnotes, presentations, and any time you want retain control over your strokes but not think about them - it’s built in.
  • Manual layering allows you to draw with any tool on any layer, with as many layers as you’d like for each tool. Infinite layers allow for infinite sorting, stacking, and control of your textures, lines, colors, shapes and subject matter. As you use them, you’ll appreciate just how much control you have to adjust and make changes.

These modes will generally take care of themselves as you draw, depending on which / how many layer types you have, or you can switch between them with a tap. If you’ve broken the Automatic layering rules by having more than one layer for a tool or by having more than one tool-type in a layer, it will always remain in Manual.

每个图层都配备有它自己的一套控制功能:

  • 点击一个图层激活它,然后在上面进行绘画。
  • Tap + New Layer to create a new layer. It will always appear directly above your current layer. You can also select strokes from the canvas and drag them to this button, where they will create a new layer just for themselves.
  • 一样,您可选取内容后从绘图中拖到任意图层,它们就会在拖入的图层上安营扎寨。
  • 长按一个图层上下拖到可重新为图层进行排序。
  • 点击图层缩略图旁边的眼睛图标可以开启/关闭图层可见性。图层的内容并未消失,只是未显示在画布上而已。
  • Double-tap a layer or scrub through the eyes (aka rub your finger quickly up and down them) to enter Focus Mode. This mode isolates the layer and allows you to work in or view only that layer. Tap the layer to return to full layers visibility.
  • Tapping an active layer brings up the layer’s selection popup. From here you can select everything on the layer, lock the layer, duplicate it, delete, merge it down into the layer beneath it, and rename it. You can also adjust the full layer’s opacity level by dragging your finger along the slider.
