Change the hand

Last updated: 2 October 2018


This article will take you through how to change the hand in VideoScribe


The hand can be changed for the whole scribe or for individual elements.

Change the hand for the whole scribe

When you change the hand for the whole scribe all new elements will use that hand. Any elements that have already been added to the canvas will also be updated to use that hand unless the hand has been changed for individual elements.

Step 1. Click the Change Hand icon

The Change Default Hand icon is in the top toolbar (A). In the ‘Scribe Hand’ window, select a new hand from your recently used (B) or from one of the named folders on the left (C).

Step 2. Preview the new hand and confirm

When you have selected a new hand a preview window will open and the chosen hand will draw the VideoScribe logo. Click the tick (D) to accept and go back to the canvas or click the cross (E) to select a different hand.

Change the hand for an individual element

When you change the hand for an individual element it will not longer be affected by changing the hand for the whole scribe.

Step 1. Open the element properties

Choose the element you would like to change the hand for and select it. Click on the element thumbnail in the timeline and open the properties (F).

Step 2. Select the new hand

Click on the ‘Drawing Hand’ tab (G) and choose a hand from the list of recently used hands (H) or from one of the named folders on the left (I).

Step 3. Preview the new hand and confirm

When you have selected a new hand a preview window will open and the chosen hand will draw the VideoScribe logo. Click the tick (J) to accept and go back to the element properties or click the cross (K) to select a different hand.

Click the tick (L) in the element properties window to return to the canvas.
