How to Use the Interface and Tools of SketchBook Pro 2015

SketchBook Pro 2015 has a simple and intuitive interface that lets you focus on your drawing. The main elements of the interface are:

    • The toolbar: This is where you can access the most common tools, such as brushes, colors, layers, undo/redo, zoom, rotate, etc. You can customize the toolbar by dragging and dropping tools from the lagoon or the brush palette.
    • The lagoon: This is a circular menu that appears when you press and hold the spacebar on your keyboard or tap with two fingers on your tablet. The lagoon gives you quick access to more tools and settings, such as brush properties, symmetry, guides, rulers, etc.
    • The brush palette: This is where you can choose from hundreds of brushes that simulate different media and effects, such as pencils, pens, markers, watercolors, oils, etc. You can also create your own brushes by adjusting the parameters or importing images.
    • The canvas: This is where you draw your artwork. You can resize, crop, rotate, flip, or transform your canvas using the Image menu. You can also use gestures such as pinch-to-zoom or two-finger-rotate on your tablet.
    • The layer editor: This is where you can manage your layers. Layers are like transparent sheets that you can stack on top of each other to create different effects and edits. You can add, delete, duplicate, merge, reorder, hide, lock, rename, or adjust the opacity of your layers using the layer editor.

    To start drawing with SketchBook Pro 2015, all you need is a mouse or a stylus. You can use pressure sensitivity to control the size and opacity of your strokes. You can also use tilt and rotation to create different effects with some brushes.
