Step 1 - Set up Symmetry Guide
To set up the Symmetry Guide, tap on the Actions icon (wrench tool). Tap on the Drawing Guide slider so it shows blue. Then, tap on Edit Drawing Guide.
The Drawing Guide menu will appear at the bottom. Tap on Symmetry. You will see one line through the middle of the canvas.
The color can be adjusted by moving the circular slider at the top. The Opacity and Thickness can be edited if needed. Click Done top right.
Step 2 - Draw Design using Symmetry
Choose a side to begin drawing. We chose the right side. As you draw, everything will be mirrored or copied on the opposite side of the line.
Once complete you can fill with color or paint the color in.
