What’s New

Version 5.3.10

Say hello to the exciting new features for Apple Pencil Pro in Procreate.

Apple Pencil Pro with Procreate unlocks new ways to customise your favourite brushes, introducing new possibilities for your workflow. This update releases support for barrel roll, squeeze and haptic feedback.

Brush Settings for barrel roll
Barrel roll supercharges Procreate brushes in Brush Studio, providing a new way to control shape rotation, stroke jitter, colour dynamics, grain rotation, size, opacity and more. You can add barrel roll to many other settings in the Apple Pencil tab, or by tapping the numeric entry button on the slider and switching on barrel roll.

Hover over your canvas and squeeze to select the layer you wish to work on, speeding up navigation on even the most complex projects. Squeeze to pick colours with Eyedropper or use QuickMenu to activate shortcuts without ever touching the screen. Assign squeeze to custom actions with Actions → Prefs → Gesture controls.

Haptic feedback
Haptic feedback provides a more tactile experience when making selection masks, transforming layers, using ColorDrop, drawing QuickShapes and more. Try turning on Snapping on the Transform toolbar to feel the layer snap to the canvas edges.

Liquify Twirl with barrel roll
You now have full control over rotation in Liquify Twirl. Twist the Apple Pencil Pro back and forth to bend your layers exactly how you want them.

No Procreate, No iPad!

I don’t know how will be a future of digital drawing without Procreate... so intuitive UI, so easy to manage all.
Thanks for make settings for left handed people like me! Many Apps for sketching and drawings don’t have such option (Adobe first for example).
So one day if Procreate will cease to exist I will stop use iPad definitely!

“locked” layer size and layer number

You guys rock! I love using your app and with every upgrade you are affirming your leading place as drawing/creative tool for iPads

So far only limiting things I experienced while using it are
1. Limited number of layers. I understand there is a reason for it but I hope that some time in the future updates it is going to increase.
2. This one is even more important to me.
I found out that, whenever I experiment with the size and position of one layer (or better said - drawn object) I miss the option of somehow “locking” the layer size (something equivalent to PS smart object) which will preserve the original size of the layer content and make it adjustable without loosing it’s quality after increasing the size. Many of times it is required of us designers/artists to adjust the sizes of the elements additionally. This kind of limitation makes us migrating our working files in PS in order to finish it, and it is ok and doable, but it tends to place Procreate in a position of sketch tool, rather than a pro tool (which, many times, you are already proved to be).

Thank you in advance!

Kind Regards

Developer Response ,

Edited: Hi tamaranth - Thanks so much for your review! It's fantastic to hear that you enjoy using Procreate. ❤️

We chose to introduce a canvas size limit to ensure the fastest and most stable user performance in Procreate. This layer limit dependant on the available RAM on the iPads and the working power. As iPads get more powerful, so will Procreate. We're always working on getting the most out of the iPad's performance.

If there are any tools or features you would like to see in future versions of Procreate, you might like to add your support to the relevant posts on the Ideas & Suggestions board on the Procreate Discussions. Any suggestions that gain enough user support is something that may be considered for a future release. (
Hey there - thank you for your review! Currently we're not able to increase the layers of Procreate and keep the software stable, but thank you for your feedback!
