Inkscape 1.1 Is Now Available

The new version features a welcome dialog, a command palette, and searchable preference options.

The Inkscape team has released an update for their Inkscape tool. Inkscape is an open-source vector graphics editor for GNU/Linux, Windows, and macOS X. It offers a rich set of features and is widely used for both artistic and technical illustrations such as cartoons, clip art, logos, typography, diagramming, and flowcharting.

The list of changes includes:

  • A Welcome dialog, where the look of Inkscape can be selected, and some choices for the new document's size or file to open are available
  • A Command palette that opens when the "?" key is pressed and that allows to search and use many functions without having to use a keyboard shortcut or going through the menus
  • It is now possible to copy, cut and paste parts of paths with the Node tool
  • The dialog docking system has been rewritten, which resolves many issues with Inkscape's docked dialogs and allows you to dock dialogs on either side of the screen
  • New Outline Overlay mode that displays object outlines while also showing their real colors
  • Preferences options are now easier to find by using the new search field
  • It is no longer necessary to remember to click on 'Export' in the PNG Export dialog, as the exporting will already happen after the click on 'Save' in the file selection dialog.
  • Export as JPG, TIFF, optimized PNG, and WebP directly from Inkscape
  • When pasting a copied object, Inkscape now pastes it directly on top of the currently selected object by default
  • An extension for updating extensions and installing additional extensions called the Extension Manager (currently in beta stage)
