What is Morpholio Trace? A Review and Quick Tutorial

Technology might have brought an onslaught of scary gadgets and an even scarier people. But one thing is for sure, it has made and is steadily making people's lives easier every single day. One of such people is the Architect.
Architects have designed an application for architects, to ease the kind of work that they do and this application is called the Morpholio Trace. If you're an architect using an android however, you might want to get an iOS device after reading this, that is if you don't already know about Morpholio Trace.
Morpholio Trace is a digital tool used for tracing by architects. However it is for so much more than that. You can actually make your work as an architect so much easier because it is designed to support you conceiving an idea, to designing and illustrating it's schemes and also making renderings.



  1. Comes with digital tools such as smart rulers, pens and layer controls.
  2. Supports customization of your own stencils.
  3. It has a Smart Fill feature for calculating areas and filling while you draw.
  4. Possesses an AR Sketchwalk feature.
  5. Instant Scale Feature in which you can use any two points to set a scale in imperial or metric units.
  6. AR Perspective Finder feature.
  7. You have the ability to generate your own color sets for every project you embark on.

The above only begin to scratch the surface but let's find out why you might find Trace to be an important application. If you were using a pen or paper, then you're bound to make mistakes at some point unless you've become so perfect a drawing lines and circles. Trace's digital tools are as simple as clicking on the options for a straight line or circle.
There's a new feature provided in Trace and this feature is quite beautiful. It can encapsulate the boundary of a particular area and determine what its square footage is. Imagine an architect telling the square acres or feet of a house simply by uploading a map of that house and tracing it. It's an awesome feature.

Pros of Morpholio Trace:

  1. Intuitive and stunning User Interface.
  2. Great app for concepts in the field.
  3. The use of AR in the tools of this app is beautiful.


  1. Limited ability for scaling PDF exports.
  2. No digital pencil tool (asides your Apple Pencil)
  3. There are no cut and copy functions yet and this is limiting.

  • Would love Trace w/ multiple pages

    By DJF_IS (Pcmac user)

    I enjoy Trace on my iPad Pro (w/ Apple Pencil) as well as other programs like Concepts, and AutoDesk’s SketchBook, but none support multiple pages. As an artist and product designer, I digitally sketch all the time and import photos, renderings, and maps, BUT having to create a new “Project” for every sketch is very cumbersome, time-consuming, and slows down my workflow. To me, a single sketch with layers isn’t a “Project.” A project typically has many “Pages” or “Drawings.” And while I use Morpholio Journal for day-to-day notes/sketching as well, it has very limited tools. Ideally, I’d like Trace and Journal combined, while still allowing both to act as their own stand-alone products. Imagine being able to flip through multiple pages in Trace, then be able to flatten and export the entire set of pages as a PDF to send to clients and consultants! It would REALLY be powerful. I’d use it all the time. Maybe one day. Until then, each sketch is considered a single “Project.”
  • Invaluable App

    By SF paper hound (Pcmac user)

    Im an architect who’s been using digital drawing /modeling tools for way too many years. I find Trace one of the most clever and useful programs (apps) I’ve ever used. The simple elegance with which Morpholio has recreated the intuitive and haptic experience of drawing is stunning. As someone who travels frequently the ability to draw to scale in a mode that echoes the free workflow of layering trace on trace has made my plane time my most valuable time. Ive been using Trace for a few years now so have Ive also seen how well tended the app has been. Improvement after improvement have made Trace even more useful and robust while not losing the simple elegance of the original. Trace is simply amazing. Ive tested many, many drawing apps available for Ipad and nothing comes close to Trace.
  • I hoped for better... I’ll be cancelling

    By caitiekay (Pcmac user)

    I think this app is way over rated. It’s really just a sketching app, nothing you can do any precision with, and Procreate is FAR BETTER to sketch with. Don’t expect any kind of precision measuring or drawing detail. Zooming in is terribly pixelated. The perspective tool is so frustrating due to lack of detail and raster images. Lines don’t snap so your perspective lines can be way off. With perspective turned on the apple pencil has serious parallax and lag. If zoomed in even a little the pencil won’t draw or draws on the wrong projection line while in perspective. This is completely unacceptable and makes the perspective function useless for anything other than very rough concept sketching. Procreate’s perspective is much better. Layers are really frustrating; you can’t merge layers or copy selections to new layers, if you want to draw on a lower layer you have to turn off the ones above rather than select the lower level. If you want a higher resolution zoomed in, you have to create a new layer; but then you can’t merge layers, so you end up with tons of layers.
  • Great app for concepts in the field!

    By Mikezots (Pcmac user)

    No, it’s not “real” CAD: it’s raster based, for one thing. But then, this isn’t something I use for production. I create base plans with a laser and another iPad app, then import this as a base plan into Trace. From there, it’s like using trace paper: sketch out concepts, refine, illustrate, label and export. Plus there’s a nifty perspective drawing tool that you can use over a site photo. At the end, the client gets an annotated PDF file, ready for comments (or a file I can combine into a notebook). Why not 5 stars? The export function could use some form of layer sets to export plan and sketches without having to go back and turn off/on layers. As far as I know, you can’t control page layout, and sometimes the app gets it wrong: vertical plan in horizontal layout. There are workarounds, but it would be wonderful if these things were built-in. Likewise, the AR stuff is a great idea, but often does what it wants instead of what I want.
