Having loads of trouble with latest inkscape on Mac, specifically bitmap tracing

Asked by gavin on 2015-07-02

Crashing with latest inkscape/xquartz. XQuartz only allows me to work in Inkscape and if I click outside of Inkscape it minimizes. When I try to open the window to trace bitmaps, I know it opens because I can see it when I display all my windows(On mac, 4 finger swipe up) but I can't click on it or find a way to bring it to the front. So I can't use it. Any suggestions?

Hhmm, I was just trying to help someone with a problem like this, except it was on Windows. In Windows, there's a keyboard shortcut the maxmizes a window, which automatically puts it on top of everything else. Although of course after that you would need to restore it to the smaller size. But then it would be on top. Maybe there's such a key shortcut for Macs?

Can you help with this problem?
