Hey y'all!

 

I'm very excited by the new Adobe Illustrator app for the iPad Pro, but I can't seem to find a way to create tapered paths, as we could with the desktop app (see my screenshot).

 

Is this functionality available in the new app? If not, seems like something that really needs to be in the next update. 

 

Thanks!
Hillary

You can use the brush and the pressure of the Apple Pencil. If you want to suggest something, use the App settings. There is a Feedback option.

Hi Hilldill222
You can draw a very thin triangle which looks like a tapered line - this will be more or less tedious depending how many strokes you need!

Currently there is no way to create tapered paths.  You can create a path but you can only change the width uniformly.

They do have brushes but for whatever reason they omitted the tapered brushes.
