Inkscape for Mac v0.92.2

Inkscape is professional quality vector graphics software which runs on Windows, Mac OS X and GNU/Linux. It is used by design professionals and hobbyists worldwide, for creating a wide variety of graphics such as illustrations, icons, logos, diagrams, maps and web graphics. Inkscape uses the W3C open standard SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) as its native format, and is free and open-source software.

Inkscape has sophisticated drawing tools with capabilities comparable to Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW and Xara Xtreme. It can import and export various file formats, including SVG, AI, EPS, PDF, PS and PNG. It has a comprehensive feature set, a simple interface, multi-lingual support and is designed to be extensible; users can customize Inkscape's functionality with add-ons.

The Inkscape project has a growing international user community, and many learning materials exist to help get you started with your creations. Help and support is provided by the community, and there are lots of ways for you to get involved if you want to help improve the Inkscape project.

Features of Inkscape
Object creation

Drawing: pencil tool (freehand drawing with simple paths), pen tool (creating Bézier curves and straight lines), calligraphy tool (freehand drawing using filled paths representing calligraphic strokes)
Shape tools: rectangles (may have rounded corners), ellipses (includes circles, arcs, segments), stars/polygons (can be rounded and/or randomized), spirals
Text tool (multi-line text, full on-canvas editing)
Embedded bitmaps (with a command to create and embed bitmaps of selected objects)
Clones ("live" linked copies of objects), including a tool to create patterns and arrangements of clones

Object manipulation

Transformations (moving, scaling, rotating, skewing), both interactively and by specifying exact numeric values
Z-order operations (raising and lowering)
Grouping objects ("select in group" without ungrouping, or "enter the group" making it a temporary layer)
Layers (lock and/or hide individual layers, rearrange them, etc; layers can form a hierarchical tree)
Alignment and distribution commands

Fill and stroke

A gradient editor capable of multi-stop gradients
Pattern fills (bitmap/vectors)
Dashed strokes, with many predefined dash patterns
Path markers (ending, middle and/or beginning marks, e.g. arrowheads)

Operations on paths

Node editing: moving nodes and Bezier handles, node alignment and distribution, etc.
Converting to path (for text objects or shapes), including converting stroke to path
Boolean operations
Path simplification, with variable threshold
Path insetting and outsetting, including dynamic and linked offset objects
Bitmap tracing (both color and monochrome paths)

Text support

Multi-line text
Uses any installed outline fonts, including right-to-left scripts
Kerning, letterspacing, linespacing adjustments
Text on path (both text and path remain editable)
Text in shape (fill shape following stroke)


Fully anti-aliased display
Alpha transparency support for display and PNG export
Complete "as you drag" rendering of objects during interactive transformations

File formats

Perfectly compliant SVG format file generation and editing
Live watching and editing the document tree in the XML editor

Command line options for export and conversions

Release Notes

Inkscape 0.92.2 is a stability and bugfix release. For a complete list of bugs fixed in 0.92.2, see the Launchpad milestone page .

Add a control point to the centers of rectangles, circles/ellipses and stars to make it easier to move them and to align them in a precise way. ( Video )
DPI Change: Command line option --dpi-update-method=[none|scale-viewbox|scale-document] to batch-process legacy files (Bug # 1659489 )
Improve selection chemistry z-stack ordering (Bug # 1395452 )
Rework the object panel, including making shortcut handling respect user-defined shortcuts.
Add ability to generate one path from multiple paths with LPEs in them (Bug # 1664632 )
Automatically fix baseline spacing of <flowDiv> flowed text elements when importing legacy documents. (Bug # 1661771 )

Regression fixes

GUI: Fix file preview on Windows when using the native file open dialog (Bug # 802904 )
Printing: Fix crash when printing on Windows (Bug # 1665768 )
Text: Fix tiny font size for sub/superscripts (Bug # 1658029 )
Text: The default style of the text tool can now be changed when nothing is selected.

Important bugfixes

GUI: Window position/size was often wrong on startup and when opening new documents (Bugs # 1190828 , # 1654464 , # 195683 , # 568867 )
Symbols: Fix loading of Visio Stencils from .vss files with special characters in file name (Bug # 1662465 )
SVG import/export: Special characters in the document's "title" field could result in invalid SVG output and prevent re-opening the file on Windows (Bugs # 576126 , # 1627551 )
EMF/WMF import/export: Fix many issues that occurred when the system's locale was set to a language using comma (,) as decimal separator. Notably text was often positioned wrongly after import (Bugs # 1089857 , # 1335660 , # 1599763 , # 1675755 ) and the export option "Convert gradients to colored polygons series" made Inkscape crash (Bug # 1549015 )
LaTeX+PDF export: Fix export for text inside a masked or clipped group. (Bug # 1417470 )
Extensions: The attribute xml:space="preserve" for INX Parameters of type description was ignored but they were untranslatable without it (Bug # 1668115 ). The attribute is now respected and translations work properly in all cases, however please note that this might change formatting in cases that were broken before, i.e. whenever omitting the attribute. To maintain visual appearance please add the attribute.
Import: Fix many issues with importing large files. Many files that could not be opened before (especially those containing large raster graphics) should import fine now. (Bugs # 1572280 , # 1412912 , # 1373322 , # 1243011 , # 1627004 , # 1687090 )

Fix "Shift" modifier being added incorrectly for many user defined shortcuts (making them unusable)
Allow to set shortcuts with characters that need to be escaped (e.g. "&amp;", "<", ">")
Fix crash when exporting user defined shortcuts on Windows (Bug # 1639701 )
Improved performance of shortcut list in preferences
Fill and Stroke: Fix HSL color selector sometimes showing corrupted colors with a non-functioning 5th slider (Bug # 1635982 )
Fix occasional crash when closing Inkscape or saving the document (Bug # 1670688 )
Fix tearing and glitching while moving objects. Don't stop() the rubberband until it has actually been started. (Bug # 1510704 )
Fix various memory leaks (Bug # 1662686 , # 1662683 )

This .dmg file (64bit) is for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and later and requires XQuartz.
Preparation and running Inkscape

Download and install XQuartz from Specific instructions on installing XQuartz and support are found at the XQuartz web site. Note: Inkscape runs on XQuartz. This step and the next are required.
Restart the computer or log out and back in to complete the XQuartz installation.
Add Inkscape to your Applications folder.
Run Inkscape. A prompt will ask about the location of X11. Point to XQuartz in your Applications/Utilities directory. Note: This first launch of Inkscape can take a while because it will cache fonts installed on your system.
Configure X11's input and pasteboard settings in X11 > Preferences:

Known quirks

Because Inkscape runs on X11's architecture, keyboard shortcuts use Ctrl (^) instead of Cmd (⌘) as modifier key. This will change in future versions.
