SketchBook now has 1, 2, and three level perspective guides, a snapping toggle, vanishing level lock, and horizon line visibility. We additionally added the Customise, Infinite, and Constrained Grid instruments. When in perspective mode, snap to vanishing factors as you lay down strokes, set the horizon line, and drag vanishing factors off the canvas.

At this time’s replace additionally provides a brand new Curve Ruler, which Autodesk says can be utilized to attract curves and sweeps that aren’t doable with the Ellipse instrument:

For this launch we additionally added a model new instrument for SketchBook the Curve Ruler. Discovered within the Ruler instruments, use it to attract curves and sweeps, not doable with the Ellipse instrument. Merely tap-drag an finish to vary its form or drag the center to reposition it.

Final however not least, SketchBook now helps the 2018 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Professional fashions, in addition to the second-generation Apple Pencil:

For these of you who love to attract and have bought an 11-inch iPad Professional or 12.9-inch iPad Professional (third technology), we didn’t overlook about you! We figured you in all probability invested within the new Apple Pencil (2nd technology) or are planning to. It could be a disgrace in case you couldn’t use SketchBook’s pressure-sensitive brushes, the brand new bendable ruler, perspective guides, or different instruments, so we added help for it. That features its double-tap performance – double tapping on the pencil will change you to the eraser and again to your present brush.

SketchBook is on the market on the App Store as a free download.
