What’s new in version 4.8.2

Updated on Jun 07 2022

Offset path
  • The Offset Path tool allows users to create duplicates of shapes at different scales. These duplicates can appear as evenly-spaced borders around shapes, but they are also separate, proportional elements that can be moved and edited without affecting the original shape.
  • The Offset Path is a replica shape that is evenly distanced from the center of the original.
  • The slider input represents the size of your offset. The numerical value will change the size of the offset accordingly. For example, 10px means the new path will extend 10px from the original path. Negative numbers will result in a shape smaller than the original.
  • The “Joints” field allows you to edit the new path’s angles. “Miter” is a pointed corner, “Round” is a rounded corner, and “Bevel” is a flat corner.
  • You can also select multiple shapes and apply Offset Path to each of them all at once.
New default color palettes
  • There are now 12 new default palettes: Essentials, Rainbow Power, Cotton Candy, Tokyo Neons, Lost in Space, Mother Nature, Sunset Burn, Ocean Blue, Hot Desert, Vintage Dream, Berlin Grays, and Skin Deep.
Create a color palette from a photo
  • Users can now import any photo (jpeg or png) and Vectornator will automatically create a color palette from it.
  • When you create a color palette from a photo, Vectornator will extract 6 color swatches from the image.
Auto trace improvements
  • The new Ignore White toggle allows users to decide if Auto Trace should create shapes out of negative space or not. When Ignore White is turned on while in Sketch Mode, the white background will disappear.
  • The Simplify Path option results in shapes with fewer nodes.
  • The Keep Source Image option allows users to keep the original import image underneath the Auto Trace results.
  • Auto Trace results are now grouped in the Layers Tab.
  • The Auto Trace button is now blue.
Shape tool discoverability
  • To help users find more shapes in the Toolbar, we added a circle to the bottom right of the Shape Tool icon. This highlights that there are more options available other than the rectangle.
  • The gear icon on the top of the second toolbar allows users to edit the shape settings.
