Trace Subscriptions

Q: Will I be charged for a subscription after signing up for a Morpholio account or after my Pro trial ends?
A: No. The app is free to download and the basic version of the app is also free. Once the Pro trial ends, you will simply only have access to basic functions, but you will not be automatically signed up for a subscription or charged. You will only be charged if you sign up for a subscription from the Pro popup.

Q: I purchased a Trace subscription, but my subscription isn't working. What do I do?
A: Restart the Trace app and when you see the Pro Store popup, tap Restore Purchases to activate your subscription.

Q: How do I manage my subscription to Trace?
A: Please follow those steps:
1) Go into your device settings.
2) Tap on iTunes & App Stores.
3) Tap on your Apple ID at the top.
4) View Apple ID.
5) Tap the Manage button under Subscriptions.

Drawing

Q: How do I erase?
A: Tap on your brushes and select the eraser tool!

Q: My lines are pixelated when I draw. What can I do?
A: To get the best resolution, when you zoom in to draw a detail, create a new layer and this will give you higher resolution lines.

Layers

Q: How do I know what layer I am drawing on?
A: Just like real trace paper, the top visible layer is the active layer. To change the order, tap and drag a layer to the top.

Multipage PDF

Q: How can I import PDFs?
A: Tap , then Cloud Drives and then Locations. To import PDFs from Dropbox or your email, export the PDF from the other app then tap Open in Trace.

Q: My PDFs are low-res when I bring them into Trace. What can I do?
A: When images and PDFs are imported to Trace, they are reduced to 2K (4K for iPad Pro devices) to allow Trace to run smoothly. To better control the quality, we recommend reducing the size of your PDFs before bringing them into Trace.

AR Camera

A: Be sure that you are using a 2017 iPad or newer. Then, go to Device Settings and turn on Camera Permissions for Trace.

Drag’n’Fly

Q: What 3D model file types can imported to Trace Pro?

Smart Fill

Q: Smart Fill is filling the entire screen. How can I fix this?

Q: Can I save my sketches in an editable file format?
A: Yes. All sketches are automatically saved in the Saved Projects section on the home page.

Q: In what file formats can I save my Trace projects?
