Inkscape Not Useable
by DJ Paul
I am having many issues with the current version of Inkscape for Mac OS.
Version number is; Inkscape 1.1 (c4e8f9e, 2021-05-24) and it was downloaded
from Inkscape's website.
*Before I add a bug report, can someone tell me how to completely remove
Inkscape from my system? I am using Mac OS Mojave, 10.14.6 on a 2012 Mac
Pro computer and Mac OS Catalina, 10.15.7 on an 2012 iMac computer. Both
systems are having the similar issues with Inkscape and only Inkscape.*
Biggest issues are crashes. Crashes opening various files, crashes closing
various files, while crashes while working in Inkscape. I have looked thru
the bug lists and see some of the issues there. My previous
version, 1.0.2 (e86c8708, 2021-01-15), also had some crashing issues,
however, in the latest version, the app is very unreliable and hard to use
for even the simplest of drawings.
Here is an example. The attached drawing will crash Inkscape. Notice the
lines with arrows on the end. Remove the lines with the arrows on the
end. Re-create the first line starting at the circle and ending across the
2 horizontal lines. Select the line you just drew and try to add an arrow
to the end. Inkscape should crash, at least it did today when I tried this
again after the first crash. This was a new drawing in Inkscape.
This is just one scenario. I've had crashes adjusting gradients, fills,
outlines, object sizes, points in bezier lines, adding and/or adjusting
text , , , etc. Many drawings from www.openclipart.org will crash Inkscape
when opened or if you try to do any editing in the downloaded svg file.
Thank you for your time,
