iPhone problem

I watched the video and it shows the app being used on the iPad. When I used it on my phone and changed it to portrait, if I hide the tools dropdown, then rotated the phone to a portrait it covers up the tools icon and you can’t bring it back up.

Simple, quick and so helpful

I like this a lot , similar apps are way too complicated . Select the size of paper or canvas you wish to draw in to, then select your photo and add the grid which you can change until you like the box size and then it translates for you how wide/long the box size should be on your paper . The final measurement is in mm, but what artist doesn’t have a ruler with metric on it ? This is no fuss and gets you painting in no time.

A little frustrating

I have to echo another user’s frustration. When you select inches, it would be super nice if the imperial measurements were reflected on your picture. Otherwise, what’s the point of even offering inches? Any chance of a fix for that?
