Updated: Nov 8, 2022

Have you ever tried to find the “add stroke” or “outline” option in Procreate? Well, although it is quite a common feature in most other digital art software, as of today, it’s still not available in Procreate. Luckily though, there’s a hack you can use to add strokes to multiple shapes quickly.

Note: you can use these steps for text, illustrations, anything! The only thing you want to ensure is that no matter what you are working with, your shapes are all either in one group or on the same layer.

Step 1: Duplicate your group/layer

  • Create a copy of the group or the layer your elements are on by swiping it towards the left with one finger.

  • Then, tap on Duplicate.

Step 2: Create a selection

  • Tap and hold on that layer with two fingers to select the content.

This will automatically open a selection in the selection tool of your content.
