ZipLine to the rescue.

ZipLine to the rescue.

Let's be honest, drawing straight lines on a small screen is hard. ZipLine provides an intuitive solution: just hold the drawing tool still at the end and everything straightens out. Do it again and they connect to each other. Cool.

Version History

New variable width options when sketching with the pen or marker, helpful new templates, the ability to select aspect ratios when exporting and much more!

Linea Go 1.6

February 2019

New Features

  • Stroke Widths: The Pen and Marker tools now support strokes that are set to a specific width or that vary with pressure. Fixed width lines are great for lettering, cartoon outlining, and graphing. Variable pen widths create a more organic feel and are perfect for inking comics, illustrations, and more.
  • New Templates: Circular grids, sheet music staves, and Apple Watch user interfaces were added to grids & templates. Whether you're drawing mandalas, writing your next hit, or working on a wearable app, these portrait and landscape layouts will be helpful! Includes:
    • Watch UI design
    • Circular (for Mandalas, symmetric drawing, graphing, etc.)
    • Reticle and Large Dot grids
  • Aspect Ratios: Crop and Export is now easier to use with presets for popular formats like 4:3, 16:9, and square. Your settings are also saved, making multiple exports simpler.
  • Other changes include the ability to merge selections into a specific layer, improved selection undo, better placement of images dropped into Linea, and more.

Improvements

  • PSD export now writes compressed layer data. This reduces file size and works around a bug in Procreate so it handles the transparency correctly.
  • Support for exporting as a PDF from the Crop and Export panel.
  • When pasting or importing an image into a layer while there's a selection, the new content is centered. Can be used while doing copy/paste to another layer to make a duplicate that's in the same place as the original.
  • Reworked early templates to future proof them.
  • When undoing after a transform, the selection is no longer dropped.
  • Added headers to template groups for improved clarity and organization
  • New keyboard shortcuts for selection mode commands: Cut, Copy, Paste, and Duplicate
  • ReplayKit Recording has been re-enabled thanks to a bug fix in iOS 12.1.3 or later

Bug Fixes

  • Drag-and-dropped images are now dropped in the correct place on the canvas
  • Fixed orientation of imported images of certain types (indexed PNG, for example)
  • When importing multiple images in succession, each one gets its own undo state
  • After merging layers, empty ones are now correctly saved to the document file
  • Layer checkmarks now reset to being all-checked between selections
  • A document in iPad sidebar multitasking mode no longer displays the Preview bezel without its text visible
  • Selected templates are now scrolled into view on the popover list no matter the length

New Features

  • Fill Tool - The paint roller fills large areas with color quickly and easily:

    • Uses all currently-visible layers, including templates/grids for the fill boundary
    • Draw a shape with the fill tool to enclose a free-form area

    • Smudge mode - Push or pull strokes to create free-flowing shapes and effects
  • ZipShapes - Draw rough shapes and hold at the end to create a perfect version:
    • Recognizes circles, ovals, squares, rectangles, triangles, and polygons
    • Transform handles let you modify the shape - move, scale, stretch to get exactly what you want
    • ZipShapes work with the pencil, pen, marker, and fill tools
  • Versions - Revert a sketch from a previous version to fix a mistake or take a different creative direction:
    • In the Project view tap Select, pick a sketch, then use Versions from the Actions (⋯) menu
    • Revert to a specific version or create a new sketch out of a selected version
    • Versions is only available when iCloud is enabled in Settings

Improvements

  • There is now a setting for what your finger does while an Apple Pencil is in use: erase, blend, draw, move the canvas, or ignore.
  • New paper background: Mulberry
  • New template for full-screen tablet that matches 11" iPad Pro aspect ratio
  • When recording or broadcasting your sketch, the record indicator and popup are no longer captured
