macOS Mojave

EazyDraw 9 provides full support for macOS version 10.14.x Mojave). EazyDraw 9 will run on OS X version 10.13 or 10.14. This includes dynamic light and dark mode user interface plus UI integration of user defined system wide accent color.

P3 Colors

Wide color gamut enhances the visual experience on compatible displays.

Support for wide gamut color, also called high dynamic range colors. Newer Macs (powerBooks, and iMacs 2016 and newer) have displays that provide P3 Colors. Older technology screens use sRGB colors. The P3 color space has a much wider color gamut than sRGB. Simple terms: colors can be brighter on a P3 screen. Actually there are two requirements to see these brighter colors, the App must support and present P3 colors and the display must be a P3 display.

EazyDraw 9 is now fully color managed and supports P3 colors on P3 screens. EazyDraw 9 delivers bright sRGB colors on screens that are non-P3. For everyday use this is all automatic, on newer iMacs and PowerBooks the colors will simply look better. For professional (or semi-pro) use, EazyDraw 9 provides fully color managed image authoring. This includes live visualization and tagged image export (PNG, JPG, TIFF, PDF, SVG). If your audience includes mobile, then P3 images are a must.

All color wells provide intelligent tool tip that clearly indicates the color space (gamut) for colors used in a drawing. The system color picker, color sliders tab, gear menu, provides interface point to select the color profile (synonym: color space, color gamut, color dynamic range).

Quick Look

Quick Look PNG, JPG, and TIFF preview images are color managed and support P3 colors. The Quick Look image format is set on the Properties palette, access from File main menu in EazyDraw. The default format is PDF. The Quick Look image is included in the drawing file. Large detailed technical drawings can lead to very large PDF vector images perhaps even doubling the size of the drawing. In these cases a PNG or JPG format (or None, that is a setting too) may be the best choice. All these formats have been optimized and are fully color managed with EazyDraw 9.

Apple Notarized

There is a new method (new with Mojave) to provide confirmation that the downloaded App has not been intercepted and infected with .malware. This is called a notarized app. Prior to distribution we (EazyDraw) submit the compiled App to Apple. Apple scans and cross checks the App with a through security check. Problems would be reported to developer before distribution. When the security check is successfully the App has an encrypted certificate stapled to the compilation package. Then when you install the App the encrypted information is confirmed against the actual App on your system, ensuring the installed App is secure and clean.

In macOS Mojave, Apple has introduced Hardened Runtime. This provides another layer of security to prevent exploitation of the EazyDraw App. This includes runtime code signing enforcement, code library validation, malarious debugging invocations and other runtime restrictions. EazyDraw 9 has been compiled with Hardened Runtime. The App has been tested with these protections active, all is robust at runtime.

iCloud

Fully compatible with iCloud including Hand-Off.

Touch Bar

Users who have MacBookPro late 2016 model have the new contextual Touch Bar just above the keyboard. EazyDraw presents contextual tools on the Touch Bar for improved efficiency and productivity. The presented tools depend on the front drawing window and what is selected in that drawing window. The Touch Bar tools do not duplicate the functionality of the Attributes Bar, instead they provide useful additional tool functionality. Per Apple Guidelines the Touch Bar augments and does not replace the common keyboard short-cuts. This means you can watch the Touch Bar for newly available short cuts and productivity enhancing capability.
