Stroke Menu

This page covers many of the tools in the Strokes menu. These are tools that work primarily on strokes, however, some also work with point selections.

Subdivide

Reference

Mode

Edit Mode

Menu

Stroke ‣ Subdivide

Subdivides the strokes by inserting points between the selected points.

Number of Cuts

The number of subdivisions to perform.

Smooth (スムーズ)

The amount of the smoothness on subdivided points.

Repeat (リピート)

Number of times to repeat the procedure.

Selected Points

When enabled, limits the effect to only the selected points within the stroke.

Position

When enabled, the operator affect the points location.

Thickness

When enabled, the operator affect the points thickness.

Strength

When enabled, the operator affect the points strength (alpha).

UVs

When enabled, the operator affect the UV rotation on the points.

Simplify

Reference

Mode

Edit Mode

Menu

Stroke ‣ Simplify

Reduce the amount of points in the strokes.

Fixed

Deletes alternated points in the strokes, except the start and end points.

Steps (ステップ)

The number of times to repeat the procedure.

Adaptive

Uses the RDP algorithm (Ramer-Douglas-Peucker algorithm) for points deletion. The algorithm tries to obtain a similar line shape with fewer points.

Factor

Controls the amount of recursively simplifications applied by the algorithm.

Sample

Recreates the stroke geometry with a predefined length between points.

Length

The distance between points on the recreated stroke. Smaller values will require more points to recreate the stroke, while larger values will result in fewer points needed to recreate the curve.

Trim

Mode

Edit Mode

Menu

Stroke ‣ Trim

Trims selected stroke to first loop or intersection.

Menu

Stroke ‣ Join ‣ Join, Join and Copy

ショートカットキー

Ctrl-J, Shift-Ctrl-J

Join two or more strokes into a single one.

Type
Join Ctrl-J

Join selected strokes by connecting points.

Join and Copy Shift-Ctrl-J

Join selected strokes by connecting points in a new stroke.

Leave Gaps

When enabled, do not use geometry to connect the strokes.

Move to Layer

Mode

Edit Mode

Menu

Stroke ‣ Move to Layer

ショートカットキー

M

A pop-up menu to move the stroke to a different layer. You can choose the layer to move the selected strokes to from a list of layers of the current Grease Pencil object. You can also add a new layer to move the selected stroke to.

Assign Material

Menu

Stroke ‣ Assign Material

Changes the material linked to the selected stroke. You can choose the name of the material to be used by the selected stroke from a list of materials of the current Grease Pencil object.

Menu

Stroke ‣ Set as Active Material

Sets the active object material based on the selected stroke material.

Arrange

Mode

Edit Mode

Menu

Stroke ‣ Arrange

Change the drawing order of the strokes in the 2D layer.

Bring to Front

Moves to the top the selected points/strokes.

Bring Forward

Moves the selected points/strokes upper the next one in the drawing order.

Send Backward

Moves the selected points/strokes below the previous one in the drawing order.

Send to Back

Moves to the bottom the selected points/strokes.

Close

Edit Mode

Menu

Stroke ‣ Close

ショートカットキー

F

Close or open strokes by connecting the last and first point.

Type
Close All

Close all open selected strokes.

Open All

Open all closed selected strokes.

Toggle

Close or Open selected strokes as required.

Create Geometry

When enabled, points are added for closing the strokes. If disabled, the operator act the same as Toggle Cyclic.

Toggle Cyclic

Reference

Mode

Edit Mode

Menu

Stroke ‣ Toggle Cyclic

Toggles between an open stroke and closed stroke (cyclic).

Type
Close All

Close all open selected strokes.

Open All

Open all closed selected strokes.

Toggle

Close or Open selected strokes as required.

Create Geometry

When enabled, points are added for closing the strokes like when using the Close tool. If disabled, the stroke is close without any actual geometry.

Toggle Caps

Mode

Edit Mode

Menu

Stroke ‣ Toggle Caps

Toggle ending cap styles of the stroke.

Default

Sets stroke start and end points to rounded (default).

Both

Toggle stroke start and end points caps to flat or rounded.

Start

Toggle stroke start point cap to flat or rounded.

End

Toggle stroke end point cap to flat or rounded.

../../../_images/grease-pencil_modes_edit_stroke-menu_cap-1.png
