选取

Concepts is a vector-based app, which gives you the powerful freedom to pick up and move, tweak or change any stroke at any time, even after it’s drawn. It allows you to make changes to your designs with minimal effort - instead of redrawing an entire project, you can just select what needs to be adjusted and change it. Perfect for design iterations, reorganizing mind-maps, or preparing materials for clients after feedback, Selection frees you to accomplish more.

我们有4种可以选中单独线条或多根线条的方法:

  1. 使用选取工具。在笔刷菜单中,您可以点击选取工具(箭头),然后在您的工具盘或工具栏中设定为独立的工具。点击屏幕使用该工具,用法与其他工具类似。
  2. 长按画布中的任意位置同样也能激活选取工具。这是一个非常便捷的方式,让您在绘图过程中无需切换笔刷也能轻易地使用选取功能。
  3. If you’re using an Apple Pencil, configure your Finger Action to Select (Settings → Gestures). Your finger will work as the Selection tool while the Apple Pencil follows your selected preset in the tool wheel.
  4. 如果您想要选取整个图层的内容,可以点击图层缩略图,再次点击该图层缩略图。点击弹出菜单中的选取(箭头图标)可选中整个图层。

选取菜单

Once you’ve activated selection by any of the above options, you’ll find a popup at the bottom of the screen. This is your Selection menu. The Selection menu helps you to filter the strokes you’d like to select from, so whenever you select something, this menu will hang around.

  • 在从工具盘中使用选取工具时,只要笔刷处于激活状态,菜单都会一直保留在屏幕上。
  • When Selecting via the tap+hold, the menu will remain for as long as your finger rests on screen. With a second finger, you can toggle the menu buttons to set your filters (we’ll talk about those below).

元素选择器、套索、取色器

在选取菜单中,根据激活的选项,从左到右您可以看到:

  1. A Selection Type toggle, for which selection method you’d like active. Tap it to toggle between Item Picker (single item selection, with the ability to add or subtract strokes individually), Lasso (multi-select using drag to lasso your strokes), and Color Picker (select color and vector properties from strokes).
  2. 笔画类型切换键,允许您选取目标笔画的一部分或整体。
  3. 锁定切换键,包括或忽略你在绘画时锁定的任何笔画。
  4. 图层切换键,您可以选取是否只在激活图层中选取或者一次性在所有图层中选取。(“全部”意为在全部图层上选择,“活动”意为仅可套索当前图层内容。)

套索

On the first, left-hand toggle is your Lasso. The lasso allows you to select items by dragging your finger across or around your strokes. Whatever the blue lasso touches will be part of your selection. Lasso again to subtract from the selection.

如果您套索中内容,决定再添加一些线条,切换到元素选择器,然后继续选择。

元素选择器

如果您再次点击选取类型切换按钮,就是元素选择器。这个单独元素选取机制让我们能为选区添加或减少笔画。

将小十字拖动到一个笔画上,若需要选取单项笔画,则松开手指;若需要选取多项笔画,使用另一只手指点击屏幕来选取笔画,然后移动到其它的笔画上,重复此项操作。

要使用元素选择器,您只需将手指或压感笔放在屏幕上,然后会在您的指尖或者笔尖出现一个小十字或加号(+)。

当您触摸笔画上的小十字的中心时,会出现一个小圆圈,表明该笔画已经选取。点击屏幕确认该笔画,然后放开手指,该笔画将被选取。

To add strokes to your selection, just drag the crosshairs to your next stroke and tap the screen to select it. It doesn’t matter whether you have lifted your finger from the screen or not, you can select as many strokes as you’d like.

如果想从您的选取中移除笔画,只需要将小十字拖动到已经选取的笔画上。然后您可以看到小十字变成减号(—)。点击屏幕接受移除。

颜色吸管

The third Selection toggle is the Color Picker. This is a vector color picker with a few more capabilities than standard color pickers in other apps. It allows you to select and remember color, brush and stroke properties, and set them to your tools.

除选取切换按钮以外,您还可以从色轮激活取色器。打开色轮,找到滴管图标,点击使用。

When Color Picker is active, drag the circle with crosshairs across the screen. You’ll see the top half of the picker changes colors and transparency according to the character of the color beneath it, while the bottom half of the picker displays your active tool’s current color. When you let go of the color picker, the new color will be assigned to the tool.

In the selection menu at the bottom of the screen, you’ll see an option for “Alpha On”. This means the color reflected will be calculated as if the color were against a transparent background. It grabs the actual flat color without applying opacity to the brush

Finally, you’ll see a tool tag floating above the color picker. This tag recalls the exact tool you used to draw each stroke in your drawing. If you’re having trouble remembering which tool you used in what color, tap the tag and the tool will be applied to your tool slot.

You can find an illustrated tutorial about the Color Picker here - How to Use the Color Picker.

调整选取项

当您选取一个或者一组笔画后,您可以看到屏幕底部的选取菜单出现更多有用的切换键。

  • 旋转:允许您旋转您选取的目标。您可以单击打开或者单击关闭。
  • Scale / Stretch / Off. Toggle between these to scale strokes ( changes the stroke width while scaling the selection), stretch strokes ( maintains the original stroke width while scaling the selection), or lock your strokes from scaling or stretching.
  • 过滤器:点击此处返回到最初的选取菜单过滤器——元素选择器、套索、颜色吸管。

You can use a two finger gesture to scale and rotate selections.

You can also do an exact angle rotation of your selection using the angle field on the status bar at the top of the canvas. Tap+hold the angle field to bring up a keyboard and a set of presets. Tap an angle value from the presets or type in your custom degrees value. Objects will rotate clock-wise. It helps to lock your rotation toggle on the selection menu first to avoid turning it again when moving the object.

You can also use the four corner handles around a selection to adjust the selection. These handles are your Control Points. You can tap, then drag a single point to scale/stretch the selection. Or you can tap a corner point or two and distort, skew and warp your selection just by pulling with one or two fingers. These are excellent for tweaking size and shape to make your drawing proportions right. They’re also helpful for aligning strokes, text or other images into your sketch’s perspective.

  • Scale/stretch. Drag one of the corner points to resize the selection. Put another finger on screen to lock the aspect ratio while resizing.
  • Distort. Tap one corner and drag anywhere on screen to pull it around.
  • 歪斜:点击两个控点,使用一只手指歪斜整条边。
  • 变形:点击两个控点,使用两只手指捏合或扩散选取内容。

选取后点击一个或两个控点调整选中内容吧。

选取弹出菜单

选取框上面的是选取弹出框,拥有很多有用的功能帮助您调节笔画。

Clipboard. The clipboard copies your selection to your main device’s clipboard, just like when you copy text from an email or link. Tap Paste in any email, message, document editor etc. to paste in a transparent PNG version of your selection. Inside the app, you can find the clipboard from your Gallery, at the top of your current object library, from inside the Import menu → Imports, or just by a tap+hold on the screen. You can also attach colors from other apps to your clipboard, and access them on the Color wheel.

Lock. The Lock button locks your selection from all other selections and adjustments you might make in the future. You can access it again by selecting and unlocking it, or by changing the Lock filter on the Selection menu.

Duplicate. Anything you select, you can also copy, as many times as you’d like. Just touch Duplicate and it will create an exact match for fast iterations. Drag the duplicate to a new layer to keep or hide your old selection, and iterate on the new.

Delete. The best way to erase a vector stroke is to delete it. At this point, our erasers work as movable layer masks, so if you truly dislike a stroke and want to banish it to the far nethers, just delete it from your life and drawing. Of course, you can Undo.

Group. This chain link button allows you to group all items inside your selection together, into a single “object.” You can then select the entire object with a single tap, instead of having to re-select multiple strokes. To separate them again, just select the object and tap the button again to ungroup them.

翻转和镜像:最后的两个按钮可以将您的选取项从一边翻转到另一边,或者垂直镜像,非常适合创建映像和倒影。

突出显示选择

Highlight selection allows you to clearly see the strokes you have selected. When you have an active selection, the selection maintains its actual colors and everything else is greyed. The active selection also pops to the front, meaning that if the stroke you selected is behind other strokes, it will be presented on top for as long as the selection is active. If you turn off Highlight Selection, the only thing differentiating the selection from other strokes is the bounding box.

You can also use Highlight Selection with the Nudge tool. When it’s turned on, you’ll see both before and after strokes as you nudge lines on your screen, with the original stroke slightly greyed out. Turn it off to only see the adjusted stroke.

You can turn Highlight Selection on or off in Settings → Gestures.
