    How can I add typing?

    4072341329 Level 1

      I am new to this app and am trying to add writing to a logo design but don’t want to have to hand draw it. Does anybody out there have any suggestions? The font apps for the iPhone don’t appear to be high enough resolution and I’m out of ideas. Thank you

          I'm sorry, there currently is no text function in Draw (or Sketch) so any text either needs to be drawn, or brought in to an Image Layer.


          In order to import it into Draw, the file must be in your Creative Cloud Files folder. You can either place the image in that folder by dragging it to the Creative Cloud Files folder on your desktop or by logging in with your Adobe ID to http://assets.adobe.com/files https://assets.adobe.com/assets/mobile?filter=draw and dragging it into the Files folder. Once it's in that folder you an bring it into a drawing.


          I hope that helps.

            While there is no type tool in Version 4.5, there are other Adobe Mobile Apps that are available for free, and can sync with your CreativeCloud account that can help you set type.


            Check out: PhotoshopMix (Photoshop Mix (Mobile app) )


            Photoshop Mix is for making edits to photos, but has the added benefit of a text engine within the app!  All you need to do is save your text layer separately, then import it to Sketch or Draw as an image.


            Also Check out: Adobe Spark (Make Images, Videos and Web Stories for Free in Minutes | Adobe Spark)

            It is a little more difficult to put into your Adobe Draw workflow, but it creates type as well with some interesting preset compositing styles.


            Adobe Spark has the added benefit of being both on mobile and on browser (FREE).


            You can't merge projects, but you can certainly get usable type design from them.


            LAST (but certainly not least)

            Check out Adobe Capture (Adobe Capture )

            It isn't really a "TYPE" option, but if you want to photograph some text for placement in your work, Capture is a great tool to help you get there.  **It's an app that you should have on your mobile for several creative tools**
