Thread: Mac OS requirements for Designer 2 & 3?????

  1. Default

    HERE IT IS FOLKS,

    Buried in the changelog between 2.0000 and 2.001:

    01 July 2013 -- Differences between versions 2.001 and 2.000
    * Added optional check for updates automatically.
    Enabled in installer or on Help menu.
    * Warn when loading a project that uses a font not installed.
    Also indicate in the text dialog, when next opened,
    what font the system will use as a substitute.
    * Fixed potential crash on close due to message being logged after close.
    * Fixed flash dialog window controls off top / bottom of screen sometimes.
    * Fixed crash when doing Sweep with Rails for certain types of rail curve.
    * New and improved installer (for Windows)
    * Removed suport for the Power PC architecture (Mac OSX)
    * Added File->Open (without preview) to restore the previous
    native dialog with navigation. The preview dialog is now
    File->OpenWithPreview.
    * Added custom feather to feather drop-down.
    * Added lithopane viewer.
    * Added new Icon for desktop shortcut.

    Guess I'll be getting an apology and refund offer on Monday. Too bad they forgot to make the sales information accurate.

    I would be surprised if they gave you a refund but who knows?

    I have a question about Designer 2 or 3. I'm thinking about getting a new tablet so I would like to know which one is better to run either designer on. My computers are both HP's but I do have an Apple IPhone. Only one computer is signed in with CarveWright so I do have another one I can put it on. I'll be watching for an answer. Thank You for your help on this!!!! Ducky63

    I've been working toward a buying a PC for the main reason of the software running better. I LOVE my Mac but I've had constant small issues and workarounds with it utilizing Designer. I'd imagine same would be true for a tablet if it would even work. Just my two cents.

    I use Parallels on my Mac and run the Windows version of Designer with no problems. I run the Mac version but the Windows version is more familiar to me and seems to be smoother.

    Three things to remember about Designer on a MAC:

    1. It is very important that you install your Designer PRO into your Applications folder; not your desktop.
    2. Also remember, Yosemite removed x11, so you have to reinstall it.
    3. If you are using Yosemite or Maverick, you need to TURN OFF or PREVENT APP NAP.
