There are a couple of options to create new works. Once you've opened up Sketchbook Pro, tap on the gallery icon at the top left of the toolbar. A library of your existing sketches will be shown as thumbnails on the screen. To create a new sketch, tap on the plus symbol on the bottom left of your gallery screen. You're first presented with size options and layer count for your canvas. Now, as we saw in a previous video, be aware of the corresponding maximum layer count for any given canvas size. Choose one of these, and your new canvas will appear in a work space. The other way of creating a new sketch is from within the work space itself.
Simply click on the plus symbol at the toolbar, and once again you're presented with canvas size options and the corresponding maximum layer count. For example, a canvas size of 768 by 1024 is limited to 18 layers maximum. An even larger canvas size of 1800 by 2400, is limited to four layers maximum. Now, there are workarounds for this limitation and we'll get into that in a later video. For now, click on that 768 by 1024 canvas option and you're ready to sketch.
Now, let's say you want to create a new sketch but you already have one open, let's go to the gallery and open up that drawing again. Here's your drawing. Let's say we've made some changes to it. Changing the opacity, perhaps, of one layer. Come back, and now we want to open up a new drawing. If you click on the plus symbol, you'll be presented with the option of discarding or saving your image. In this case, let's click Don't Save, and continue your sketch.
