Create Your First Sketch

Create Sketch

From all screens you can create a new sketch or a new project.
To create a sketch:

  1. Tap on the “new” (+) button and select New Sketch.

  1. Choose a template
  2. Optionally, enter a title for your sketch
  3. Tap on “Create”


Mockup covers numerous and various templates to assist you in putting together your projects. It provides 49 diverse options for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Web, Mac, Android, Widgets, App Icon, and Blank templates.
Each has its own size and characteristics. Some have the landscape & portrait orientations.

The sketching process begins once the template is selected.

Expand Canvas

The sketch starts with a single frame. To add up frames horizontally, swipe to the left. An arrow (->) will appear. Swiping will be held until a (+) appears.

Once the (+) pops up, release your finger. A new column adjoins the previous one.
Similarly, swipe upward to add a new row.

Alternatively, on your iPad, tap on the (+) on the navigation bar, to expand the canvas horizontally or vertically.

Note that the sketches are affixed an entire row or column and that leads to the expansion of the canvas.

Removing Frames

You are prompted to remove the unused columns/rows or keep them upon closing the sketch.

As the app description on the App Store states, the Mac app is view-only. You can create sketches on your iPhone or iPad, and view/export them on your Mac.
