What’s New

Version 4.9.0

Hey there Vectornators! In this update, we have made the following improvements to the app:

AUTO TRACE ILLUSTRATION MODE

-The Auto Trace feature has been updated to include a third mode, especially designed to work with colorful illustrations.
-You can now choose between Photography, Sketch, and Illustration Mode.
-Illustration Mode is ideal for illustrators who want to quickly transform their raster illustrations into vectors.
-While Sketch Mode generates a black and white vector output from sketches, Illustration Mode transforms colorful raster drawings into vector paths.
-The Minimum Path Size slider sets the threshold for your path size. A higher value creates longer paths between points, resulting in a less detailed image, a lower value will generate shorter paths between points, producing a greater level of detail. By default, the Min Path Size for Illustration Mode is set at 10.
-Users can also set the Level of Detail to Low, Regular, or High.
-The Simplify option will generate vector shapes with fewer nodes.
-The Keep Source Image options allows users to keep the original image after the tracing process is finished. The original image will be below the newly traced image in the layer hierarchy.

MERGE LAYERS

-You can now merge two or more layers on all iOS and macOS devices.
-When two or more layers are selected, the merge layer option is available in the right-click menu.
-To merge selected layers on macOS simply right click > merge layers. The layer that was right-clicked is considered as the destination of the merging.
-To merge selected layers on iOS, use long press > merge layers.
-Layers are also easily merged with the drag and drop functionality. If you drag and drop a layer on top of another layer, the dropped layer is on top.

Awesome app until the IOS14 update

This app was awesome but now after I updated to the new update for iOS 14 I feel like some stuff doesnt work. I can’t change the size of a text box after I make it. The node tool is suppose to change it but I can only select it. The selection tool also doesnt do anything. It just shows the anchor points but I can’t select them or select anything else. I have to change off of it to do anything. I thought the node tool adds anchor points if you wanted but it won’t do a single thing aside from being able to move it.

EDIT: So it seems that on one of the things I was working on before and after the update was having the problem. Right after the update I started working on it again and I was having the issues with the selection tool not being able to do anything along with the other stuff but I just tried again and it’s perfect. So I’m not sure what the issue was but it’s good now. Maybe the update just needed time? One thing I m wondering though is if a shortcut or another way to input trademark (and things like it) logos. I tried doing it (I have an iPad) and it just disappears when inputted. I checked the color and everything, it takes up the space for a symbol but isn’t there.

Developer Response ,

Very sorry to hear that you have faced all these issues with text editing in the latest app version. I tried to reproduce them on our end, but no luck, everything works perfectly. I can easily select the anchor points and resize the text box using the Selection tool. That's why I have to ask for your help. Could you please get in touch via email support@vectornator.io to discuss everything in details! Please stay in touch with us, we would like to help.

Love it.

I just found this app about 2 months ago and love it. The ability to have multiple art boards open is a huge benefit over Inkscape. I just custom made two fonts (two versions of two fonts) over the past two weeks. This was because the font making program was not easy to use but could import SVG files for the fonts. Had about 300 art boards open at one time for about 150 characters. Unfortunately i want to embed the fonts and may need to use Word which does not play nice with SVG files. Looking for a workaround now. I just read the review from 6 months ago who said this was too complex. I disagree 100%. It took me a day to figure out to unclick the fill and only use the stroke to quickly create shapes and lines like I used to do in MS word. After that it was very intuitive and very powerful. In addition to making fonts, I made a coat of arms. Will also start making clip arts for books. I am looking on how to animate the files. But I think I may have to create and export images to Procreate to animate. Or just create in Procreate.
