Procreate Illustration App for iPad Gains New Text Manipulation Features

The Procreate app for iOS was today updated to version 4.3, introducing several major features that enable new text manipulation abilities within illustrations, as well as general speed and performance improvements.


Users of the popular illustration app for iPad can now add editable typography to their illustrations, while precision sliders make it possible to refine spacing and alignment, and rasterize the results to finish.

This release also introduces the ability to drag and drop fonts into Procreate, while new layer export options allow you to share layers as folders containing PNG images, a multi-page PDF, or an animated GIF.

Elsewhere, there's new pressure smoothing settings to enhance strokes, and new layer blend modes including Darker/Lighter Color, Vivid Light, Linear Light, Pin Light, Hard Mix and Divide.

Procreate 4.3 is a free update for existing users. New users can download Procreate from the App Store for $9.99. [Direct Link]

This article has answered a question for me. There's a programme running on BBC One here in the UK where celebrities are being challenged through a range of painting and drawing tasks. Although they usually use traditional paints, in the last episode they were each given an iPad for one of the challenges. I didn't recognise the software but thought it looked really good, then just a couple of days after watching that show I see this article and when I looked at the screenshot I instantly knew the app they'd used.

Just off to the App Store to buy it for my iPad Pro :)

Thanks Mac Rumors!

Indeed a killer feature. Typography tools for iPad are sorely lacking. So glad to see this.

It just boggles the mind that this app is so cheap. It is absolutely fantastic. If it had smart objects my life would be complete, but guessing that would need quite a lot of RAM. One day though.
