          • @mxb I've replied to you, but it seems Prismo won't display my comments unless I start by @-ting you?

            • hmm that's super weird. Will investigate that soon.

              Anyway, back to GTK - is the GTK 4 feeling more "native" from macos user perspective? I mean, trying to use inkscape on macos was a pretty bad experience. Some additional libs needed to be installed, inkscape looked a bit awkwardly, a lot of exceptions encountered.

              Pardon my ignorance, i have no knowledge of desktop apps development :)

              • @mxb It's not as simple as whether or not the UI looks awkward, but basically, yes.

                It should be possible to package a GTK app for macOS in a way that doesn't require the user to manually install any additional libs or anything, just like any other app.

                ¯_(ツ)_/¯ about exceptions, that shouldn't happen.

                Look'n'feel-wise, GTK 3 and 4 include a powerful theming engine that basically lets you make it look however you want using CSS. (1/2)

                • @mxb The default theme is called Adwaita and looks like this (first attached image). There are many others, including ones that look like Aqua, e.g. this one (second attached image).

                  Overall it depends a lot on how the app is packaged, so better complain to Inkscape devs or whoever you've got the package from.

                  (2/2)
