Effortlessly organize and edit your work

Work in your favorite programs

Inkspace makes it easy to edit your work, your way, giving you the power to export files directly to your favorite platform.

As a creative person, you can streamline your creative process by exporting an initial sketch to Adobe Illustrator. And as a journalist, you can get ahead of a deadline by forwarding your notes straight to Dropbox, Evernote or Microsoft OneNote for editing.

Complement your creations

When you’ve finished taking notes, you can use Wacom Inkspace to enhance your work and make basic refinements, or even create new notes. As a designer, for example, you can use Inkspace to develop a logo idea by adding color to a sketch.

Hunt down any file

Inkspace makes it easy to keep all your work organized.

You can add written hashtags to your sketches while you’re working on paper, or add them to files later using the app. Inkspace automatically recognizes these hashtags and uses them to order and sort your work. You can then use the app’s search function to find specific tags, words or creation dates, so you can locate the files you need in seconds.

Another way of organizing your work on the app is to create ‘groups’. These act as folders which you can name and place your files in. Groups are easy to move, export and delete, giving you a familiar way to stay on top of your library.

Crafted for collaboration

When you’ve got to work collaboratively, Inkspace really comes into its own.

Using Live Mode on the Inkspace app, you can make drawings and annotations visible to others digitally as you work on paper. Now you can select different colors so the annotation could be more precise. This is ideal for people who want to broadcast in real time, such as artists sharing their creative process, or maths teachers working through a problem in front of their class.

The web app also enables you to work on a real-time canvas simultaneously with others. As everyone’s thoughts are captured in real time, you can continuously collaborate to create new ideas together and improve your overall workflow – no matter where you all are.
