You might know by now that working in Procreate is my favorite way to create. And this may be because of all the fun shortcuts and gestures I've learned along the way. Learning to use the Procreate app is really easy with its simplified interface but having that minimal interface means a lot of things may be hidden or not obvious within the main screen. I'm going to show you where all of these hidden actions are and include shortcuts you may not know about.
I've compiled over fifty gestures and shortcuts to use in the app and am sharing them in this post. I'm also offering a PDF cheatsheet you can print and keep next to your iPad as well as a video tutorial showing each of them in action. As if that's not amazing enough, I'm also sharing keyboard shortcuts you can use in Procreate. If you're used to working in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, these may be helpful for you. In addition, I've included iPad shortcuts and Apple Pencil shortcuts.
Once you start using these, you'll find yourself getting disappointed that all the other apps don't have them. And you might even feel silly when you realize you've just attempted to do a Procreate gesture on paper... yeah, I've done that more times than I'd care to admit ... so let's get gesturing!
