Scapple 1.4 provides compatibility for both macOS 11 Big Sur and Apple Silicon.
Refinements and Changes
Big Sur Refinements
- UI and icons updated to match the new look of macOS 11 Big Sur.
Apple Silicon Support
- Scapple is now a Universal app, running natively on both Silicon and Intel machines.
- Optimisations to drawing boards with many notes and connections.
- Optimisations to typing in zoomed boards with many notes.
- Added a preference that allows you to use solid lines instead of dashes for connections without arrows.
- Replace and Replace & Find are now disabled if there is no replacement text or if the selected text does not match the find text.
- Note shadows are now always black and no longer invert to white when against a dark background.
- Removed the recent search menus from the Find panel as they did not work correctly.
- Improved Paste, so that image and multiple pastes from the Finder now work better.
- Scapple now fixes invalid characters on paste (such as replacing tabs with spaces and page breaks with newlines).
- Improved clean-up in XML file format for deleted notes (previously data recording which notes had arrows pointing to them could be left around after notes were deleted).
- When using “Stack” to move notes out of one stack into another, the original stack is now adjusted and no longer leaves a gap where the removed note used to be.
- Stacks are now maintained when notes within them are merged.
- When pasting, if notes in a stack are selected, the pasted notes are now placed under the first selected note in the stack. (This does not apply when pasting via the contextual menu.)
- Quick Look preview bug fixed.
- Fixed some minor bugs relating to pasting text into Scapple.
- Fixed bug whereby pasting text into a note would result in black text until editing ended, even if the board was set to use a custom text colour by default.
- To work around a bug with certain fonts (such as Chalkduster) whereby descenders can draw outside of the text area, which could lead to descenders being unfaded when the rest of a note was faded, text drawing is now clipped to the text area when a note is set to be faded.
