KaleidaGraph v4.1.x Updaters

This update builds on the rock solid performance and reliability that customers are already enjoying with KaleidaGraph 4 by addressing the most important issues reported by customers. Note: These updaters will only work if you have v4.0.x already installed and personalized on your computer.

  • Added support for the Intel Mac. The installer will install the correct version based on the processor in your computer.
  • Bitmap file export such as BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, and TIFF now uses QuickTime to generate the export files. As a result, several new options are available for some of the formats such as byte ordering, LZW compression, and variable JPEG export quality.
  • The Help file is now in a different format. QuickHelp is no longer needed to view the Mac Help file and the WinHelp program is no longer needed under Windows.
  • The v4.1.3 Mac updater addresses an issue where the program could crash when trying to choose the Open, Save, or Print commands under OS 10.7.2 or later. It could still crash under OS 10.9.2 or later when trying to save files in a different format. This is fixed in the v4.5.4 update.
