What makes Artboard special?
• AT YOUR FINGERTIPS CONTROL
The familiar Mac interface makes you feel right at home. Style, Geometry, Text and Layer Tabs expose Artboard’s powerful features. No more digging through menus to find edit commands. Keep your attention where it belongs – on your drawing canvas.
• SUPER SMART DRAWING TOOLS
The most advanced smart objects let you modify shapes and paths with ease. “Live” adjust all vector shapes, paths, and curves with a single, direct Select tool.
• MORE POWERFUL STYLES EDITOR
Go way beyond simple stroke and fill styles of basic illustration software. Artboard’s Style Tab is used to create and edit awesomely expert “stacked” styles (including arrowed strokes, rough strokes, pattern brushes, gradients, image tile, patterned and hatched fills, and more).
• EDITABLE CLIP ART & STYLES
Built-in library of over 1900 Styles & Clip Art includes brilliant pattern brushes, cool color swatches, stylish shapes, maps and flags, flowcharts, floor plan and landscaping, and hundreds more. And these aren’t just standard clip art images – they are crisp vector graphics that you can completely change the size, color and design of to make your own.
• TIME-SAVING WORKFLOWS
Advanced print and export options. Export your drawing, selected objects, individual layers, and/or “slices” of your drawing, at multiple resolutions and scales, supporting multiple Color Spaces.
Flexible templates help small businesses, students, hobbyist and 2D game designers get started on their projects quickly, such as making business cards, posters, pixel perfect icons, and right-sized social media graphics.
