I know that the variable width tool is not available.  I'm talkign specifically about the width profile menu that allows you to taper the ends of your strokes.  I'd like to be able to create custom profiles.  Is this possible on the iPad?

At this time, no. Hopefully in the future. I opened a desktop file with profiles applied to strokes and they are live when you open on the iPad, but I couldn't apply/copy the appearance of them to new strokes on the iPad - so I don't see a workaround. I look forward to when this is possible!

Hi @defaultyk1l93aw7irw 

 

I just clicked "New and Upcoming Features" > "What's Coming" and see that "Variable Width" is listed in the "What's Coming" Section. Watch for the next update!
