If you're using iOS 11, just open Procreate and Files side by side, select all the drawings you wish to export and drag them to the desired folder in Files. You can change the format in which they get exported from Help > Advanced Settings. By default I think they'll be in native Procreate format which is perfect for backups.
You can do the same for brushes and swatches too.
You should also take a full backup of your iPad, because that way you'll also backup all your settings in the same time.
Hi smpoll. Can you explain a bit more what you are doing and where's the problem? Have you tried dragging and dropping? What if you choose JPEG and then Save to Files? Or are you saying Files isn't showing up as an option?
I agree the monthly subscription is not good. It means I most likely won't be touching the app after the free six months, and it also lowers my motivation to even bother learning to paint with it.
I think I've mentioned this before in some earlier discussion, but I really like the way Bohemian Coding have made their "subscription" model for Sketch. The app costs 99 euros, and with that you'll get one year of updates. So essentially it's a hundred bucks per year, which is in the same price range with Clip Studio Paint's yearly fee.
The difference is that Clip Studio charges you every month, and if you don't pay for one month you'll lose access to your app and to your work. Sketch will continue to function normally after the year has passed even if you don't renew your license, you just don't get the new updates. Paying another 99 euros will get you another year worth of updates.
There are of course some tiny advantages in the monthly payment too, for example if you only need the app for a month you can do that without needing to pay for the whole year. But I'd say people who use a software with some sort of subscription model probably use it for more than a month at a time, most likely almost all the time, meaning it's not ideal to rent the app for only a few individual months a year.
I think the Sketch way of handling a subscription based software could work for Procreate too. Keep it at 10 euros per year and you wouldn't even lose that many potential new customers. I think the low prize tag is an advantage since curious people will more easily purchase it just to test your app. I doubt many would buy Sketch for 99 euros just to give it a try. Paying 10 euros for Procreate (or 9 euros for one month of Clip Studio) on the other hand is a lot more likely to happen.
Let's hope Clip Studio will change their charging policy to something better. Going down the Adobe path is not the right way anymore. In many cases doing the opposite of what Adobe does is nowadays better :)
Too bad the UI isn't really made for tablets and is therefore pretty clumsy and messy. I suppose it's basically the same as in the desktop version. But the app works quite well otherwise. Haven't tested for too long yet but so far seems pretty solid, and I'm sure especially for people who are used to Clip Studio this is a very nice addition to their iPad art apps.
Do you mean a separate page that would only show unread posts and nothing else?
Just in case you're unaware: The blue stars next to threads mean there are unread posts for you. When you tap the star it will take you to the oldest post you haven't read yet, from where you can scroll onwards and read all the way to the latest post.
