Pencil & Stroke
Drawing and stroke quality is customizable to your preferences in the Pencil & Stroke menu in the Project Blue settings sidebar.
Line Preview Color
You can change the color of your Preview Line, or turn it off by selecting None. Choose between Astro-red, Black, Cyan, Green, or Magenta.
Stroke Preview Length
Change the length of the Preview Line. Choose between short or long trailing length.
Or select Custom to adjust for a more specific length.
By default, your cursor is visible when drawing, but if you would like to hide it as you draw, select “Hide cursor when drawing”. (We're aware we need to change this to "PC Cursor" or similar!)
Pressure curves compensate for how hard or softly you press down when drawing with your Apple Pencil. In Project Blue, choose between Soft and Hard pressure (custom pressure curves are coming soon!).
- Soft Pressure Curves - The sensitivity escalates quickly, requiring less pressure to create a variance between stroke width and to reach full opacity.
- Hard Pressure Curves - The sensitivity escalates slowly, requiring more pressure to create a variance between stroke width and to reach full opacity.
Pressure smoothing helps you adjust to the digital experience by adding a layer of "friction" to your brush strokes and creating smoother movements, as if you were drawing with pen and paper.
By default, pressure smoothing is set to Enabled to provide a base level of smoothing that works across all desktop programs.
With the Custom setting, you can increase or decrease the smoothing based on how much help you want smoothing your lines.
