Moving and resizing panels.

Owen Jul 24, 2018 03:14AM AEST

I’ve been drawing panels using the panel drawing tool in the inking interface. I can’t figure out how I can move them around and resize them.

Hello there Owen,

Drawing panes in the Inking interface become just like anything else you draw. They are not vectors. So you need to use the selection tool to resize them. See the following pages from the Help manual:

Page 107
Page 108

You can access the extensive 200 page User Manual from the Tools menu in Comic Draw: which takes you to the manual download on the iBooks store.

Hope this helps,

I do have the user manual, unfortunately a search for resizing, adjusting and moving panels all turned up nothing.

So, the drawing interface is not the one to use if I want to reshape my panels? I should instead be using the lettering interface? That makes sense, since it’s the one that uses vectors.

I experimented with the box tool in the lettering interface and it looks like it snaps to guidelines, but I can’t see those guidelines when i’m In lettering mode. Is there any way to enable them?

Hello again Owen,

No problems!

“So, the drawing interface is not the one to use if I want to reshape my panels? I should instead be using the lettering interface?”

Yes, that is correct.

“I experimented with the box tool in the lettering interface and it looks like it snaps to guidelines, but I can’t see those guidelines when i’m In lettering mode. Is there any way to enable them?”

You can’t get the same Panel guides in the Drawing interface as in the Lettering interface. We are going to be making some major improvements in this area in the next major update – 1.2 – to make panel layout much improved and faster.

Thanks very much,
