Paints

Paints can be applied to both fills and strokes.

Fill paints only work inside closed sections of a vector network, and paint areas can be added and removed selectively in Edit mode using the Paint Bucket tool. Stroke paints apply when a non-zero stroke is applied to the outline or border of the shape.

The paints of any path can be managed in the Inspector by hitting +under Fill or Stroke. The first paint added is a Solid paint, and a vertical Linear gradient paint is added on subsequent presses.

There are six types of paints: Solid, Linear, Radial, Angular, Diamond, and Image. You can stack them up and use varying levels of opacity and blends to create a variety of looks.

  • Solid: A solid color is applied and orientation doesn’t matter.
  • Linear: A linear gradient where the size, direction, and stop order are editable in the Canvas and the paint picker.
  • Radial: A radial gradient where the shape, size, direction, and stop order are editable in the Canvas and in the paint picker.
  • Angular: An angular gradient where the shape, size, direction, and stop order are editable in the Canvas and in the paint picker.
  • Diamond: A diamond gradient where the shape, size, direction, and stop order are editable in the Canvas and in the paint picker.
  • Image: An image paint is masked to the fill or stroke shape respectively. The default mapping is Stretch, or Fill when the image is first loaded. Image cropping is also supported.
