Inkscape boosted

Well, after a few days of using #inkscape I decided to write a #blog about my history with the software.

tl;dr: why didn't I try it sooner?

@silverseams Great! I'll try to make sure devs are aware of this needing to be a part of 1.1. Thanks for testing!

@silverseams Actually, I'm not sure it made it into the RC, just asked the developer who fixed it in which version it landed.

@silverseams Just been doing some research. The feature request part was about the SVG file association, which one of our team tested, but wasn't able to confirm

Can you check the report here: , which captures the crash part and which has been resolved a couple days ago, and try the release candidate instead of 1.0.x (which is EOL)?

@silverseams Can you join ? I can't quite understand which version is not working with which version and why an AppImage is what must be used.

You can tag @Moini or explain a bit more, so everyone can try and help solve the issue.

Meet Inkscape artist Ozant Liuky, winner of our Inkscape 1.1 About Screen Contest!

His advice for users: "Learn the basics you need most with your workflow. Enjoy the workflow that comes with Inkscape."

@silverseams Mmh, that sounds strange. Do you have a link to share?
