I recently installed Inkscape 0.91, 32-bit, exe installer on a brand new
Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit computer. However, it doesn't show up in Programs and
Features or the Start menu. So I can't figure out how to uninstall it.
I looked in the installation directory, because in some programs, I've
seen an uninstall.exe file. But I don't find that in this case.
How can I uninstall this?
(Note that I recently was discussing about having multiple versions
installed, but that's on an old computer. This is happening on a new computer,
where this is the only version I have installed. I do have a 7z version of
another version, but it's my understanding that the zip file programs are not

I don't seem to have any redo capability in 0.92pre3. I know since
0.91, it's been not working properly
(https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1372151). But at least after making
certain actions, it would jump into action. But now, I haven't seen it working
at all, through making a fairly significant image (to test the gradient mesh).
(It's almost finished.)
Aside from using the gradient mesh tool, I've used a ton of node editing
(which is what would bring the redo back into action in 0.91, but doesn't now),
some filters, some clipping, an extension, used a layer blending mode. But at
no time have I been able to redo anything. The button remains grayed out

Any other info I can provide? Should I make a bug report?
PS - Merry Christmas to those who celebrate :-)
Bryce and Adib have added the pre5 prerelease files (source code and

Below, find a link to the message which Bryce sent to the devel list
with info about the pending release of 0.92 and about pre5, and his
message about the release meeting (which will start in a couple of minutes).
If anyone has some time to spare to come to the board meeting and offer
help with release planning that would be cool. I think we still need
someone to write an announcement...
We'll be holding an Inkscape Committee meeting this Friday the 30th of
December, on #inkscape-devel, at Noon Pacific.
All in the Inkscape community are welcome to attend.
Since I suspect many people are on vacation this week, we'll play the
agenda by ear, but give focus to issues relating to the release and
current status of Spreadshirt.
Open Colour Systems 2.0 Released
freieFarbe e.V. / freeColour is pleased to announce the release of Open Colour Systems Collection (OCSC) 2.0.
Following the release of OCSC 1.0, freieFarbe / freeColour has been been recognised by German authorities as a non-profit organisation. The release of OCSC is the first one after the official recognition.
OCSC 2.0 comprises ten additional colour palettes. More importantly, it is now also available in Adobe's Swatch Exchange Format (ASE), as well as a Plain Text Format version with the file extension CLF.
All colours have been measured from vendor-supplied colour references with a spectrophotometer.
Since freieFarbe e.V. / freeColour is an advocate of the use of the CIE LAB/HLC colour model as a free and reasonable alternative to proprietary colour collections, colour values in the palette files are in CIE LAB.

In addition, OCSC 2.0 has been released in three RGB versions for use in LibreGraphics programmes that don't support the LAB colour model and/or one of the formats listed above (yet). The formats are: GPL (GIMP, Inkscape, Calligra Office, Krita, MyPaint), SOC (Apache OpenOffice, LibreOffice, OpenOffice.org), and XML (Scribus 1.4.x).

In addition, freieFarbe / freeColour provides other colour-related software for free here: http://freecolour.org/
Colour Software Release Planned
freieFarbe e.V. / freeColour also intends to release a previously closed-source colour software product written in RealBasic as Open Source under a GPL 2+ licence. fF / fC hopes to find contributors who are interested in porting the code from RealBasic to C++ and Qt, as well as merging the features of Swatchbooker and the original product. The majority of the code is UI-related, but the essential algorithms (the core of the product) are well-commented. Any assistance with respect to the organisation of the release of the source code would be welcome.
About freieFarbe e.V. / freeColour:
freieFarbe e.V. / freeColour is a non-profit organisation that was founded in 2016 by German and Swiss colour professionals after having worked as an informal initiative without legal status for several years. our motto is "We want to unchain colours". The organisation is looking for cooperation with colour experts, software developers and users around the globe who share our goals. You are invited to become a member and/or contribute your own project.
freieFarbe e.V. / freeColour is convinced that the design world will benefit from truly free colours and better colour software.
I've just been working on an image testing the gradient mesh. Suddenly
out of nowhere (specifically, I was dragging a handle in the mesh, not a
node/stop, but handle) a small window popped up with the titlebar "Error in GC"
and the message "Too many heap sessions". When I Ok'd that little window,
Inkscape closed or crashed.
So I can potentially avoid it in the future, what does that mean?
And just a general question, while I'm here. It seems the tool is
limited to 20 x 20 rows and columns. Or is there some way to get more?
Thanks for your help :-)
Forwarding Bryce's message, see below.
Additional: Can anyone provide a screenshot of some nice use of a
gradient mesh? We could use some for the release notes, news article and
for the Inkscape website's screenshot section.

Just playing with the new gradient mesh tool, to give feedback from a
newbie (as opposed to professional or artist). Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, Inkscape
After selecting multiple mesh nodes, I switch to the Dropper tool, so I
can grab a color from an imported raster image. But as soon as I switch tools,
only the last mesh node that was selected is still highlighted. So I can't
color multiple mesh nodes at once, using Dropper tool. However, if I use just
the palette to change the colors, that works as expected, to color multiple
nodes at once.
Should I make a bug report for this?
I've just been playing with 0.92pre3, eventually to try the gradient
mesh tool. But first I'm drawing the object. One thing I notice that's never
happened before, is that while I'm dragging a node or dragging an object
(probably dragging anything, but I haven't tested everything yet) that old
Windows "wait" pointer icon, the little hourglass, is flickering the whole time
during the drag.
Since I've made my pointer icons larger, it probably is bigger than it
appears for most Windows users. But even if it were smaller, it still is
annoying as heck! Possibly could be related to using the Windows Classic
I've looked through Inkscape Preferences, and I don't see anything
obvious that might control this. But of course I often don't understand the
meaning of things. Is there any way to turn off this icon (except for disabling
I made a video, in case you don't already know what it looks like. Note
that what I see in Inkscape is slightly different from the video. The video
shows the icon is flickering intermittently. But that must be some effect of
the recording. In Inkscape, the icon is there constantly, and flickering fast.
(If I were to guess, maybe 4 or 5 times per second.)
Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit, brand new computer with 8 gb RAM, i7 processor.
0.92pre3, 64-bit, 7z version
Thank you very much,
(Part of the reason I couldn't accept Windows 10 was the lack of the Windows
Classic theme, so that's how I have a brand new computer with an old os. I hope
to be a full time Linux user by the time MS ends support for Windows 7.)
I'm not sure if this is something I just don't understand, or if it's
particular to Inkscape. I recently learned that part of my understanding of 64
vs 32-bit was incorrect. So maybe I have this part wrong too.
I'm installing Inkscape on a new 64-bit Windows 7 Pro computer (my old
one is also 64-bit, but Win7 Home). Generally, for programs which are made for
64-bit systems, they usually are installed in C:\Program Files. And when I
install a 32-bit version of a program, it usually goes in C:\Program Files
First I installed 0.91 for 32-bit, because there's a particular issue
with 64-bit that I want to avoid (for the short time until 0.92 is released
stable). I used the EXE installer, and I let the installer put it where it
thought was best, and it went into Program Files (x86), as I expected.
But I also want to play with the gradient mesh tool, so I decided to
install 0.92pre3. I think the problem that I want to avoid with the 32-bit
version of 0.91 is now fixed. So for 0.92pre3, I chose the EXE installer for
When I first started the installation, it warned me that I already had
Inkscape installed. I thought that was odd, because the 32-bit version was in
Program Files (x86) and I thought the 64-bit version was supposed to go in
Program Files. So I went past that part, and next there was a more specific
warning, naming the folders and showing the filepath. I went on through that
part too, and I specifically was watching to see where the installer wanted to
put it. I was surprised when it actually did want to put it in Program Files
So do I have some kind of misunderstanding of how 32- and 64-bit
programs are installed? Or is it a correct understanding, but Inkscape does it
differently for some reason?
Thanks for your patience with my perrenial newbiness :-)
