Thanks for the heads up! I have at last integrated the last update so I may be a while before learning the next one. There are a few that I passed off to Gimp having never managed to control the Inkscape sufficiently.

Does it work better with Mac OS? It was terrible with Mac! Not even useable because of the extreme lag. I hated it and had to start using Affinity Designer instead.

Dunno, I’m a pc guy.

I’m hoping it does work better with Mac because, other than the extreme lag, I really liked it.

My impression is that there was a lot of attention to the Mac OS as that would be the greater source of complaints.

The release notes don’t sound promising. You’d think if they’d made any significant performance improvements they’d at least mention them, but the macOS-specific part only mentions a new icon, fixed Visio importing, and the removal(!) of Postscript support (they ran into legal problems with bundling ghostscript). Hopefully they get the legal issues of Ghostscript figured out for future versions.

The ‘Export PNG Image’ dialog now exports PNGs with one click instead of two.

I may weep tears of joy.

PANIC
I’ve been using 1.1 for the last couple of days, and noted improvements, but this morning as soon as I try to rename a file that I want to keep in its altered version, and hit the ‘save as’ button, the whole program closes !!!
I’ve tried several times, and also restarted the program, but to no avail.
In the middle of rush job, and somewhat b*****ed.
Anyone else with this problem - I’m running it in Ubuntu 20.04 currently as my OS .

EDIT
Just been on the Inkscape Community, and was advised to re-install, as it was a known bug that was sorted with a new build a few hours ago !

Same @mark14 I cannot count the number of times I have forgotten that second click.

Not happy with 1.1 on a Mac. Crashes, etc. Going back to 1.0.2

On my end:

  • ESCAPE no longer exits the current tool…you have to press “S”. Moderately frustrating.

  • Pressing the DELETE key on the keyboard doesn’t work to delete an object.

Had my problem solved by a new build today. Re-installed and mine is now good to go.

I’m going to let the bugs work themself out before the upgrade… This is not a situation where I want to be a guinea pig for a mass release. :slight_smile:
