Both apps have been updated with powerful new features to help take your drawing further. A quick look at the features in the 2.1 versions:
FiftyThree and Wacom stylus support
Both Sketch and Line now support Pencil by FiftyThree and Wacom’s Intuos Creative Stylus 1, Intuos Creative Stylus 2, and the new Bamboo Stylus Fineline:
- Connect Pencil to Sketch or Line to draw freely with palm rejection. Flip Pencil to erase marks on the canvas.
- Press the button on your Wacom stylus to bring up the Pen Tip Menu in Sketch and Line for fast access to color and tool selection.
That’s not all…
- Auto save and recovery: Both Sketch and Line now save drawings periodically so if your iPad crashes or its battery runs out, your work will be recovered when you launch the app again. (Your drawings are always backed up to Creative Cloud.)
- Draw with the size tools that you prefer in Photoshop Sketch: Change the size of any of the built-in tools, or the brushes from Adobe Brush CC; simply long-press on any of the tools and a size slider appears for adjustment.
- Improved Shape selection in Illustrator Line: We’ve updated the UI for shape selection to be more visual; quickly view and select all of the shapes available in built-in Trace and Stamp shapes.
- Performance and bug fixes: We’ve been hard at work fixing bugs and improving performance across both apps.
The updated versions of Adobe Illustrator Line and Adobe Photoshop Sketch are available now (free) in the iTunes App Store. We hope you like the improvements!
