How to Adjust Your Settings

Step 1. Set Up Your Apple Pencil

While any stylus will give you basic functionality with Trace, Apple Pencil gives you the most advanced stylus experience.


Pencil Only Drawing

Turn this on to activate palm rejection and avoid making marks with your palm or finger.

One Finger Pan

Turn this on to pan around your drawing with one finger.

Custom Double Tap Behavior

If you have double-tap turned on for your Apple Pencil in the Settings App, you can also activate special tricks with double-tap in Trace by toggling "Custom Double Tap Behavior" on. This includes rotating your drafting tools and scrolling through your stencils.

Step 2. Define Your Default Project Settings

Get your default drawing space set up to work comfortably.



You can set your default units, layer color, tool color, and layer toolbar background color.

Stack Layers

If you'd like all of your new layers to be the exact size of your base layer, turn "Stack Layers" on. If you keep this off, your new layers will be the size of your current view.

Undo/Redo Gesture

Toggle this on to use a two-finger tap to undo and a three-finger tap to redo. If you toggle this off, you can only use the undo and redo icons in the pen toolbar to undo and redo your actions.

Left-Hand Mode

Left-handed users can toggle this on to switch the positions of your layer toolbar and your pen toolbar.

Zoom Rotation Lock

Toggle this on if you prefer to always keep your sheets upright without rotating as you zoom in and out.

Step 3. Set Your Title Block Defaults

Add in your company logo and name as you'd like to appear in your title block when exporting your drawings.
