Save Draft in Drawing

If you don’t want to complete and save a drawing immediately, but also want to preserve your changes, you will be very excited about our new option to save draft files. You can hit the “Save Draft” button to save your image to drafts, ready for you whenever you want to come back to it. Save Draft will free you from the constraints of time, so that you can create and take a break, without ever losing your progress. What’s more, this option also automatically saves any additional changes to your creation, so you only have to hit the button once.
