Adding to a selection

Jump to Mobile or Windows 10


When making a selection, sometimes you don’t grab everything the first time. When this happens, instead of re-selecting everything, use Add To icon in the Windows 10 version of Sketchbook Add. This way, all you need to select is whatever you missed the first time.
