The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

Hi and Welcome

I use sorceforge for downloading Inkscape for my Mac.  You will also need x-11

http://sourceforge.net/projects/inkscap ... /inkscape/

I think you can get it at SF too, but you can get it thru Apple/support.

I know this has some posts here but I cannot find it.

be sure to gt the ight vs for your Mac OS

PapaSue...you're in 2 places I love (forums)...and I feel like I know you from all the knowledge you've given me in posts like this! I will try this after I uninstall the versions I've downloaded. I didn't think I needed to do that for the mac but...alas, I keep reading I might need to uninstall before it'll work and I am worried about all this software I'm downloading that I'm not familiar with!! I'm so old  fashioned when it comes to downloading unfamiliar software!!!

Thanks so much! I'll let you know how it goes!

Laura

Laura, thanks for letting us know that you are up and running....I assume x11 was the solution?

Hope to see you post a design soon!

Regards

Hello all! It was the issue...and I couldn't use the most recent version of Inkscape...but I'm so excited...I just put text in a circle, following another Laura's tutorial on this forum which was so helpful! Let me see if I can attach!! Hope you can see it, I'm soooo excited! Making tags for a baby shower (just in case you're wondering about the text)
