Hello, 

i'd like to know if there is a way to draw a perfect circle in Fresco (or a square) for iPad?

Is there any shape tool? or anything else to do it?

If not, maybe it would be great to add it on the next update, it can be really helpfull for the first sketches.

Maybe a tool like in Procreate since Fresco seem to be a direct competitor to Procreate.

I love Fresco but with this tool i would love it more;-)

Thanks a lot!

j.

You might be able to use the selection tool to create your shapes. They work better with the fill tool than any of the brushes but at this point using the selection tool to create a square or circle would probably be your best bet. You could also use the ruler to create a square. Or draw a line hold the point in place and the line will straighten. Other than the options in the selection tool there is no way to create shapes really though.

Why can't you suggest Adobe devs to study some of Lazy Nezumi Pro's features and implement them in Fresco ? Mainly drawing assistant tools like circle/ellipse ruler, perspective rulers, straights lines rulers, radial lines rulers and whatnot ?

J'ai bien essayé, mais on est loin du compte, sans compté que Fresco est facturé 11€ par moi et de ce point de vue n'arrive pas à la cheville de Fresco pour ces fonctions de créations de formes, c'est bien dommage et Adobe perd certainement beaucoup de bon retour d'artistes à cause de ce genre de manquemqnt !

I tried well, but they are far from count, without relied that Fresco is invoiced 11€ by me and from this point of view do not arrive at the ankle of Fresco for these functions of creations of forms, it is definitely damage and Adobe loses certainly a lot of good return of artists because of this type of manquemqnt!

....So there is not a quick and convenient way to draw a circle, you know... one that doesn't get filled? Is there plans for one? So the shape tool is really just a stamp tool?

Hi Wmcqiv. 

 

Sjaani's suggestion is, for now, the only way to create a simple shape in Fresco and, yes, it's only possible to fill shapes, not outline them. 

 

We're working on those shape tools though. 

 

Sue.

I know the previous Adobe apps such as Sketch & Draw that were phased out for Fresco had the ability to trace shapes. I'm really missing that feature. Hope it gets imported over soon.

No way to outline shapes!  I hunted for that feature for a long time, as I couldn't believe such an obvious basic feature  wouldn't be there .  Please add soon.

Seriously though, how hard could it possible be for a company like Adobe to implement something so basic?

Friendly feedback: it would be helpful to mention how to do that with the selection tool. But at least you mentioned it as a possibility. So now I know what to search for next.

I would love to see this feature in Fresco - It's a crucial part of the way I work in Draw so without this Fresco is simply not a good enough replacement. I read in some other posts on here from late 2019 that these features are coming. Can you please update us with the progress or expected delivery of these features because I'll hang in Draw until this feature is released in Fresco. 🙏🏼
