The Slice Tool: Divide and Conquer Your Ideas
Learn how to use Slice to trim, cut and erase your sketch.
A true destructive eraser has been high on our feature request list. Vectors are quite different than pixels — mathematically, they are lines with direction and force, and graphically, they have “path data” such as velocity and pressure saved for each stroke. Pixels are more like a permanent paint that you apply to a canvas or background.
Concepts specializes in combining vector and pixel properties so you can have artistic yet fully editable strokes. It takes more memory, but it gives you the freedom to directly interact with your line work. It also means there’s more to erasing a line than just erasing the paint, so we’ve developed a vector alternative to the eraser. The Slice tool lets you trim, segment and cut away pieces of your strokes, and remove them permanently from the canvas.
Here is how Slice works, how it’s different yet similar to an eraser, how you can expect it to interact with your brushes and sketching, and how you can shape and edit your ideas with the tool.
