Inkscape for Mac is professional quality vector graphics software which runs on Windows, macOS and 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 for macOS uses the W3C open standard SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) as its native format, and is free and open-source software.

The app 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.

Features and Highlights
  • 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
  • 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
  • And many more

What's new in this version:

- Stars, polygons, spirals, 3D boxes are now saved correctly
- The restoration mechanism does not yet work for Inkscape svg files though some data can be recovered if you open the files. Unfortunately any files you have saved as plain or optimized SVG will never be recoverable, as the shape metadata is irretrievably lost for those file types.
- When using the new 'Text to glyphs' function, lines no longer end with @ signs, when there's a linebreak
- Traditional Chinese translation updated
- Windows installer banner layout fixed
