Protractor for Clip Studio Paint/Manga Studio 5

One of the key tools of any architect, engineer, or artist is the protractor. The ability to accurately measure or plot out angles is a function that many use when designing in pen and paper, but a bit more difficult when working digitally.

So, I designed a 360 degree protractor that can be used in Clip Studio Paint (Manga Studio 5).

The Protractor is broken down into 180, 90, 45, 10, 5, and 1 degree increments, and goes a full 360 degrees. It can be moved around, scaled, and even transformed to fit an object in perspective.

Two protractors are included in the .lip file:

  • a Vector Guide (for simple visual cue use)
  • a Protractor Ruler (for tracing along, or designing a Guide specific to what you require for your work).

A short Instructional video is also included, explaining how to register your Protractors to Materials, add them to your canvas, and how to properly scale and transform them as needed.

Please Note: These rulers are only compatible with Manga Studio 5, Manga Studio 5 EX, Clip Studio Paint PRO, and Clip Studio Paint EX.
