Linearity Curve's Document Interface is your playground when designing and illustrating, as it contains all the tools, operations, and menus you need to work with vectors.

The interface on iPad has a minimalist aesthetic but keeps a full-immersive desktop experience and is divided into three main parts:

  1. The Toolbar to access all the main Curve editing tools and the Color Widget.
  2. The Top Toolbar, also known as Action bar, is a customizable bar with the tools you use the most. On the left side of this, you can find the Document name and quickly export your projects. On the right side, instead, we find the Quick Settings and Help menu.
  3. The Style Inspector is where you can find all the content-aware options for the features you're working on. Among the Inspector, you can also find the Layers and Artboards tab, where you can organize your objects. And the Library tab, where you can open the Library to import icons, images, symbols, and more.
