Big Sur compatibility

Anyone running the beta and can confirm?

It doesn’t work with the OS11 betas that I’ve tried. The program launches but no windows appear, except for the sidebar.

Inkscape doesn’t list dimensioning and scaling in its feature list.

I tried Inscape and it doesn’t hold a candle to intaglio. I have not found any equivalent (but haven’t checked for years).

Take a look at Affinity Designer. I’ve found all the features I needed, and it’s been just as simple to use for me. While they don’t yet specifically list Bug Sur compatibility, the product is popular and in active development.

As a long-time Intaglio user who was thrilled with the app, I’ve finally accepted it’s abandonware for whatever reason. I definitely got my money’s worth, and it was a great app - but I had to move on. I hope all is well with the developer.

Thanks for the tip on Affinity. Was it easy to open, or transfer intaglio files to Affinity?

Just glanced at EazyDraw (note spelling). Opened an exported SVG from Intaglio. Preserved layers which is important to me.

Tried to download from their webpage. Then tried AppStore and downloaded a demo version. Later found they have two websites eazydraw.com and eazydraw.net. The .net site is not current, the .com is.

$95 to buy and has subscription options. Only complain was that they had supported the app for years for free then without notice changed so you had to pay full price (although there was a developed response that suggested there might be a workaround).

Also from their site: “We’ll have you downloaded, licensed, and drawing in no time with our 9 month license ($20) or single user license available at our secure online store .

Our $20 trial license is a very popular option. You get a full use license, no limits or constraints, with free updates for 9 months. You may apply the $20 license fee toward the purchase of EazyDraw (download or Flash) anytime within the first 2 months.”

Looks like a more complete app than Intaglio, but I only have the demo version and can’t seem to do some things. Unless I see something better I’ll probably give it a go.

Ooh, I forgat about Designer. There’s a free trial too so may be able to test for imports before buying. I already have Affinity Photo and that’s excellent.

“Inkscape doesn’t list dimensioning and scaling in its feature list.” It has - even dynamically updating as a path-effect or with the “measurement-tool”. I have pretty much all Vector-editors available for macOS - I was lured when Serif promised AD to open Freehand files - which was a joke apparently. There are nice features and the UI is more modern - no question - but it takes just a few minutes and I´m back on my working-horse and that is a native Inkscape version from 2015. The latest native version 1.0 and 1.0.1 introduced to many issues regarding converting text+shapes+Boolean-operation. The feature set is unparalleled imho. I have no clue what happened to Nick Nallick - hope he´s fine - not talking to his audience; not so cool. I enjoyed Intaglio for more than 15 years and will keep it in my toolset. I find nothing opens quicker and is easier for annotation imagery - just my 2¢.

Can you put dimensions on an Inkscape drawing? For example, like an architectural drawing or an engineering drawing?

Hello, I had tried EasyDraw many many years ago, I found it was a fine software but I preferred and had bought Intaglio. Now Intaglio is almost dead. The question : how long will Affinity Designer be living ? how long X-draw ? Or Y-draw ?
