    Cut / copy and paste?

    bpmharris Level 1

      Is there a way to cut things and paste them? I used to use Procreate, and I was able to draw, cut, and rearrange my drawings. Is there anything similar, or do I just not see the option? Any help or advice would be great! Thanks.

          Hi BPMHarris,


          Right now, none of our mobile apps have that capability. I know it's not really what you want to do, but you can duplicate a drawing.


          To duplicate an entire drawing, when you're in Organizer view (where you can see all five canvases of a project), tap the Edit icon (square with a pen). The icon will revert to a checkmark and a hamburger menu will appear on each canvas in the project. Tap the hamburger icon of the drawing you want to duplicate. Then tap the Duplicate icon (two squares with a +) to copy the drawing. Exit out of the menu by tapping the checkmark in the main toolbar. Just be careful when you're in Edit mode, if you accidentally delete a drawing/project, by tapping the Garbage Can icon you could permanently delete a drawing/project.


          At any rate, this is a super-often requested feature, so I'm hoping at some point that it will make it into the app(s). I'll pass your feedback along to the Sketch team.


          Hope that helps.

            Thanks for the alternative! I really enjoy drawing on Sketch way better than Procreate. I hope they do add these features, then it would be absolutely perfect for me lol!


            Thanks again, for your time.
