Using PDF Lettering Worksheets in Procreate
To use PDFs in Procreate, this is how I do it:
- I download the PDF on my computer and save it to a file-sharing site (like iCloud Drive or Dropbox).
- Then open the PDF on my iPad (using Dropbox) and take a screenshot of the page I want to practice.
- Then in Procreate 4, simply tap the “Photo” option in the top right corner of the screen.
- Choose the photo from wherever you’ve saved it on your iPad.
- Add a new layer to letter on (so you’re not lettering on the same layer as the worksheet) and practice away! 🙂
