Today’s update for SketchBook Pro 2021 includes the Curved Ruler! Based on the mobile version and found in the Ruler tools, use it to draw curves and sweeps, not possible with the Ellipse tool. Simply tap-drag an end to change its shape or drag the middle to reposition it. Need a larger curve? Scale the ruler. Want to retain a curve, but need to move the ruler to do so? No problem. And, like our other rulers, there is no need to draw directly on the ruler.

We hope you enjoy this update to SketchBook Pro. Happy Sketching!

– The SketchBook Team

PLEASE NOTE: This is an update for SketchBook Pro (which used to be called SketchBook for Enterprise) on Windows and Mac, not the free desktop version of SketchBook. SketchBook Pro will be updated with the global launch of the M&E Collection and the Alias Automotive Bundle. These features will come to the free version of SketchBook on Windows and Mac in an upcoming release.

    I’d like to request for an update to the animation tool, allow us to increase the number of layers, each layer runs on it’s own frames, and being able to change the framerate during work

    Hi there! I’m fairly new to sketchbook and I actually haven’t got the pro version (but I would like to in the future 😉 ) but I think a good update to have in the future would be to update the fill/bucket tool for both versions. I find it really annoying that it doesn’t seem to fill in an area without leaving little white spaces (this problem is very apparent when you try to fill spaces outlines in pencil or other tools with a subtle soft edge to the tool). I’ve used other free programs in the past that have fixed this issue well such as Medibang (which isn’t optimized for my new computer otherwise I’d go back to using it) which has an option that simply expands the fill and select areas by a chosen number of pixels. I think this would be a much simpler addition (to replace or add on to the already existing fill detection slider) to include in a future update that would help a lot of artists. I find Autodesk is very beginner friendly (which is another reason why this update would help) and I love that I was able to pick it up and just start creating with no trouble finding features and accessories. If there’s a way to fix this that I simply haven’t found, please let me know, otherwise, please consider this feature for a future update.

    Fantastic – I’ve only just dived into Sketchbook and this was the one tool missing. Subscribed to Pro instantly.

      Hi,

      I should have made this clearer in the blog post, so I will edit it. This is an update for SketchBook PRO on Windows and Mac, not the free desktop version of SketchBook. SketchBook Pro will be updated with the global launch of the M&E Collection and the Alias Automotive Bundle. These features will come to the free version of SketchBook on Windows and Mac in an upcoming release.
