MacBook Pro Touch Bar support

Exclusively available on SketchBook for Desktop for MacBook Pro users

 For MacBook Pro users, we’ve added quick access icons and sliders to the Touch Bar for undoing/redoing and changing brush/color attributes.

Default

This is the default state of the Touch Bar when using SketchBook. It contains buttons for undoing and redoing an action, as well as for accessing the brush size, brush opacity, slant, or amount/density/strength, and color sliders.

This is the default state of the Touch Bar when using SketchBook.

The tool you are in will determine whether certain Touch Bar options are accessible. For example, when zooming in, rotating, or moving the canvas, only Undo and Redo are accessible. When using Fill, Undo, Redo, and the Color Sliders are accessible.

For the following tools, all buttons are accessible: Ruler, Ellipse, French Curve, Perspective Guides, Symmetry, Steady Stroke, Predictive Stroke, and Draw Styles.

Brushes

For the brush buttons, the first one will always control size. The second button will be determined by the current selected brush. For some brushes, this button will change brush opacity. For others, it could be slant or amount/density/strength.The Autodesk SketchBook brush buttons in the Touch Bar
