SketchBook for Mac 8.4: The Mac Touch Bar

We support a lot of different platforms: PC, Mac, Android, iOS, Windows 10 — even a Kindle version (seriously). Our aim is to make it so that just about anyone who wants to draw on their device can do it using the device they happen to have on hand. If you happen to have a new MacBook Pro on hand that sports that sexy Touch Bar (you know the one) then we have a release for you. We just added support for this unique and interesting thing that only exists in the world of Apple.


Get Your Hands on the Update

If you haven’t already updated, head to the Mac App Store and download the update. We have a help article that explains all the options if you want to see how it works, but the gist of it (as you can probably imagine) is that you can change things like your brush size and opacity and other brush details; undo and redo at will, and pick colors and change the hue, saturation, and luminance on the fly all on that little LED strip.

These are all options you can do elsewhere in the app, of course, but the Touch Bar just gives you new ways to do it. Some people are shortcut junkies who will totally dig yet another way to shave off a few fractions of a second, while some of you out there are one-handed impresarios who like to do everything with a stylus. Of course, it’s always up to you.
