状态栏

与画廊非常相似,画布有一个持久状态栏,显示和控制相对于当前状态的信息。

The Gallery button is the grid on the top left - tap it to close your drawing and find or start another one.

The Breadcrumb trail is next, showing what project, drawing, and layer you’re currently in. Tap+hold any of these to quickly rename them. Just like in the Gallery, you can tap a menu to bring up a list of your drawings inside a project and navigate immediately between them. You can also tap on the project name to display your full projects list, select an alternate project and access its drawings instantly.

通过面包屑导航的下拉菜单可访问当前工程和其他工程的画作。

In the middle is the status indicator. It’ll normally say “Go Pro” or “Pro” (which links to the in-app store), but will change to various states like “Saving” or “Rendering” when appropriate. You’ll also see an animated blue strip just below the status bar when Concepts is working.

状态栏上的缩放/旋转有助于我们保留对画布状态的引用。长按缩放或旋转的数值可以输入精确的数值。当我们选中内容后在状态栏上长按数值可以修改其数值。双击这些数值可以复原它们。

如果需要设定纸张类型、画布尺寸、比例、单位、压感笔配置和手势等,点击设置按钮(齿轮状)。请阅读设置页面查看更多。

点击“?”,然后点击“欢迎垂询”来发送问题给我们。该页面列有学习概念画板操作的资源。

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. You can pan around using two fingers normally, or one finger while using the Pan tool. If you’re using an Apple Pencil, 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 common increments which help you find standard sizes and rotations by feel. For a more precise level, tap+hold the zoom/rotation values in the Status Bar.

如果移到到距离绘图中心很远的地方,您会看到一些箭头出现在屏幕外边缘。点击任何一个箭头,即可快速导航到最近的屏幕外线条。

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.

Tap+hold a corner of the artboard to move it about - handy for framing your drawing just so, cropping images into an exact size, and getting a reference for how big / small your drawing is based on real-world scale. When you Export, you can choose to capture the image according to the artboard’s sizing.

可自定义菜单

每个设计师的工作方式不同,所以我们提供给您可定制的画布布局。画布上每个菜单都可移动,让您拥有更大更舒适的创作空间。

To move a menu, tap+hold+drag it. To move the tool wheel, tap+hold+drag the outer ring of the wheel (as the center and middle rings bring up other menus). A map of possible zones will appear to help guide you. Let go when it’s where you want it. The menus can stack in the same port, just drag a menu up or down to rearrange their order.

The tool menu will appear as a tool wheel in any corner. It can be docked way up into the corner as a spinnable wheel to maximize your canvas space, or if you drag it to either edge of the screen, it will change to a more classic tool bar.

灵活的工具显示/隐藏配置。

You can also define your space with three different modes - normal, compact and hidden. In normal mode, all the menus are visible and the tool wheel is completely on canvas. You can enter compact mode by swiping outwards on the canvas menu buttons. This minimizes the labels into simple icons and docks the (spinnable) tool wheel into the corner. To hide everything for a full canvas workspace, swipe outward one more time on any of the menu buttons. Just touch the dot visible on the edge of the canvas to bring them back. You can also configure one of the tap shortcuts to toggle hidden mode, see Gestures to learn more.

工具转轮/栏

tool wheel

概念画板界面的焦点是工具转轮。您可从转轮访问常用工具,配置它们的属性或选择喜欢的颜色。

外环包含8个工具、撤销、重做按钮。点击某个工具可在画布上进行使用。再次点击该工具可打开笔刷菜单,在笔刷菜单中我们可以选择不同的笔刷或为笔刷设定属性(平滑度、不透明度、笔宽)。

tool bar

The middle ring contains shortcuts to your brush size, opacity, and smoothness. Tap one to bring up a slider and find your tool’s presets. Select a preset by tapping on it, then drag your finger along the slider to set its value, or tap+hold the preset value to manually enter a new value. Tap again to dismiss the menu.

If you want to adjust the size, opacity or smoothness values quickly in flow, just tap+hold+slide on any of the shortcut buttons to adjust immediately. The slider will open as you slide it and close as soon as you lift your finger from the screen.

The innermost circle inside the tool wheel displays your current color and its opacity. Tap the circle to bring up the COPIC color wheel and find the color picker. Tap+hold the circle to bring up your Colors menu, which is where you can customize your color palettes and color mixer.

If you drag the tool wheel to the right or left edge of the screen, it will become a tool bar. The same abilities are available with the tool bar as with the tool wheel, with the customizations and color options available along the inside edge.

Some people prefer their buttons larger or smaller to fit their fingers. You can scale the tool wheel by pinching or expanding your fingers on it, and find the size that is most comfortable for you.

撤消/重做

Mistakes can be wonderful, but sometimes they're not. In case you need to take a step back and change something, you can always use the undo and redo buttons. The buttons are on the outer ring of the tool wheel or beneath the tool bar. But you may use them less than you think.

You can configure gesture shortcuts for undo and redo in Settings under Gestures. Our most popular setting is a two-finger tap to undo, to the point we’ve heard our designers wail about not having a two-finger undo on a normal piece of paper.

如果所支持的主动压感笔有物理按钮,我们就可以为物理按钮设定为撤销和重做。也是在设置页面进行设定的。

But the biggest reason you might not use undo so much is that we’re vector-based, which means you can Select and adjust the offending line, or delete it entirely whenever you want. This is a selective way to alter your sketch (no pun intended) without being limited to a brute force undo that loses all of your latest work. We think you'll prefer it.

颜色混色器

Below the tool wheel is a color palette aka the Color Mixer. This mixer is scrollable left and right, and can be customized from your Colors menu. Any palette you activate in the Colors menu will appear on screen in this mixer, in the order you tapped them in.

As a mixer, it also has the ability to blend your chosen colors, allowing you to choose complementary shades inside your palette. Tap+hold on the mixer to activate this feature, then slide your finger or stylus to the left or right, and let go to select your preferred color.

您可通过从颜色菜单中选择互补色等调色板在画布上使用。学习更多颜色相关信息。

使用压感笔

Concepts is at its best with a stylus. Of course, you can use any standard capacitive stylus. These don’t need to be connected in any special way beyond touching them to the screen to draw. There are many good ones, but we like the Wacom Bamboo stylus for its solid weighting and unassuming pocket clip, or the same one with a built-in pen. We also support the most popular Bluetooth styli, which bring greater control over line weight through surface pressure and in some cases, configurable shortcut buttons. We support Palm Rejection, writing angle adjustments, and pressure curve trimming. Here are the models we support, and Amazon partner links to them:

  • Apple Pencil (on supported iPads). This is by far the best experience, as latency is very low and you get native hardware support and tilt/pressure response on supported tools. You also get the ability to separate Finger actions from Pencil actions, allowing you to draw with the Pencil and perform a separate action with your finger.
    These extra actions include: Do nothing (for extra robust palm rejection), Use active tool (the default), Nudge, Pan Canvas (to move around with a single finger vs. the standard two-finger zoom/pan), Select (a quick way to make selections), and Configured tool (8) (the final tool beneath the redo button on the tool wheel, i.e. whichever tool you’ve selected for slot 8).
  • Adobe Ink. An older stylus that is no longer supported by Adobe. We support it for the moment but don’t recommend it.
  • Adonit Jot TouchScriptPixelNote+适用于所有的iPad和iPhone型号。其中Script不支持压力敏感度。
  • Pencil by 53. While thicker than some, this doesn’t require a bluetooth connection (in a pinch) and is very comfortable to hold.
  • Pogo Connect, first and second generation.
  • All Wacom Styli. Long an industry standard, Wacom hardware is reliable and well-supported.

The shortcut buttons on some styli can be configured once the pen has been connected. Buttons can be configured to: No Action, Undo, Redo, Select Last Item, Show Layers, Show Color Wheel, Tool Setup, Show Objects.

Note when using Palm Rejection: Make sure you turn off “Multitouch Gestures" in the device’s Settings app (under General). If you don’t disable it, it will cause conflicts and the screen will jerk around a bit.

左利手支持

Concepts works great for lefties and righties. While the app gives you some default options the first time you launch, they’re really just suggestions - try moving the tool wheel to the opposite side of the screen and watch the menus switch orientation. Move your menus where they won’t be in the way.
