+$Thanks to its cutting-edge tools and easy-to-use layout, Procreate has won over a legion of dedicated users. Nothing's perfect though, and if there's one thing that's caused digital artists a bit of a headache when it comes to using the multi-award winningIPad应用+$, it's the lack of a Text tool. Judging by a recent tweet from the official Procreate account though, all this looks set to change.
+$This morning Procreate whipped Twitter up into a frenzy with a simple status and a GIF of a blinking text cursor. There's no mention of a launch date, no accompanying link to a blog post telling users what to expect, and yet artists knew it was time to get excited.

+$Choosing not to give away further details is a ballsy decision. Either Procreate hasn't got a release date in mind, or if it does, it knows that a text tool is so in-demand that it wouldn't hurt to generate a bit of publicity by being cryptic. Either way, it's a power move we respect.
+$At the moment, if a Procreate user wants to add text to their work, they have to write everything in another app or system and then transfer it across. As far as workflows go, it's a bit of a headache for what feels like quite a basic function.
+$Of course, as an alternative, lettering can be created by hand in Procreate. This is where the versatility of the app's Apple Pencil support really comes into play as its nibs can create a variety of fonts, especially书法字体+$. For digital artists who aren't typographers though, this is a time-consuming and tricky process. And for them, the imminent text tool could be a godsend.
+$To keep up to date with the latest developments on the Procreate text tool, pop over to itsTwitter帐户+$and give them a follow. Of course, if we've all misinterpreted this Tweet, the app could be in for some serious backpedaling.
