KaleidaGraph v5.0 Updaters

Changes for earlier versions of v5 are listed in the Knowledge Base.

KaleidaGraph v4.5.4 Updaters

This update addresses a few important issues reported by customers in v4.5. Note: These updaters will only work if you have v4.5 already installed and personalized on your computer. Make sure your current version of KaleidaGraph is not running when you perform the update.

  • Addressed an issue in the Mac version that could prevent some of the controls from being displayed in the Save dialog.
  • Addressed an issue in the Mac version that prevented KaleidaGraph from opening newer Excel files with a .xlsx extension.
  • Addressed an issue in the Mac version that could prevent the Deg and Rad buttons from being displayed in Formula Entry and the General Curve Fit Definition dialog.
  • Addressed an issue when trying to apply more than 20 smoothing curve fits (Smooth, Weighted, Cubic Spline, or Interpolate) on a single plot.

Note: The update to OS 10.13.4 addressed an issue where some text or objects were missing from exported images if the plot contained a long text string.

Mac users: If you get an error launching the updater saying “Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers,” control-click the application and choose Open. Click the Open button in the warning dialog that appears.

Make a note of your serial number before running the updater. You will need to enter it the first time you launch v4.5.4. The serial number is a number – it does not contain any letters.

Windows users: You should be logged in as the admin when running this updater.
