SMART GUIDES AS DEFAULT SETTING
- Smart Guides are enabled by default when a document is created to improve the user workflow speed and precision.
UPDATED NAMING SYSTEM FOR ELEMENTS
- The improved naming feature helps users manage and organize their designs by assigning individual names to each element.
- By default, shapes and groups are created with consecutive indexation, such as "Rectangle 1," "Rectangle 2," "Group 1," "Group 2," etc.
NEW SHORTCUT FOR RENAMING OF SELECTED OBJECTS
- You can now use the shortcut cmd + r to quickly rename selected objects.
- It renames the top layer if multiple objects are selected and the active layer if none are selected.
OPTIMIZED IMAGE PERFORMANCE

Ratings and Reviews
The free illustration app Vectornator brings the power of vector graphics to all your devices, whether you’re creating on Mac, iPhone, or iPad. It gives beginner and pro artists alike the tools they need to create highly detailed and scalable drawings—whether for a company logo, website mock-up, or home-renovation plan.
I just found this app about 1 year 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. 2 year update. I still love this app. I used it to create two different fonts. Each required to creation of about 150 artboards for the characters to export to a font generator program. I also made a file with over 100 clip arts I expect to use later.
1 year update. I am now working on an art style to project to improve my drawing skills to illustrate my own book. How items are grouped has been much improved to help work flow.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss everything in details! Please stay in touch with us, we would like to help.
