SketchBook quick start guide

Here’s a quick start guide for setting up SketchBook on Windows or Mac from www.sketchbook.com in under 10 minutes! Since we’ve tried to cover all our bases in terms of issues you may encounter, many of these steps may not apply. For many people, they already have an email account they can use, so that step could be skipped.

Step 1: Creating an email

Most of you will already have an valid email address; however, for those of you who don’t, you will need one to use SketchBook. Use this email address to:

If creating a new email, try to log in first using your email vendor site to ensure it’s not being used, then create the account (i.e., sketchbookisawesome@gmail.com).

Step 2: Creating an Autodesk account

When creating you Autodesk account, use the same password as your email account.

Once you’ve create your account, check your email for a Welcome email from SketchBook.

Check your Junk folder, if it doesn’t appear in your inbox.

If you still haven’t received the email, check your Account Settings to see if you made a typo. If so, you can edit your setting and make the correction.

Step 3: Changing the language displayed on the SketchBook website

In some instances, the site may not recognize your OS language settings, even after you’ve logged in. In this case, to view the SketchBook website in your native language, change the end of the URL to the appropriate language.

For example, the English site would be: https://www.sketchbook.com/?locale=en-US
To change it to Brazilian Portuguese, it would be: https://www.sketchbook.com/?locale=pt-BR

Here is a language codes:

  • en-US  English
  • pt-BR  Brazilian Portuguese
  • fr-FR  French
  • de-DE  German
  • it-IT  Italian
  • ja-JP  Japanese
  • ko-KR  Korean
  • ru-RU  Russian
  • es-ES  Spanish
  • zh-CN   Chinese (Simplified)
  • zh-TW  Chinese (Traditional)

Step 4: Resetting your password
