    Finally full support for Wacom tablets! 

    Thank you!
  • Does this version support Mac OS 10.13 High Sierra?
  • Hi SilverFox,

    Currently full official support for High Sierra is not in this version ActivInspire however we have had hardly any reported issues from the public or our internal testing so the while it is still "at your own risk" the risk is minimal, unless an update is released that breaks it of course!

    I believe that the next release of ActivInspire will include full support for High Sierra.

    Kind Regards,

  • Thanks for the response. Given how critical ActivInspire is for my classroom, I will probably wait until it's fully supported to upgrade to High Sierra, even though the risk is low.
  • Hey do you guys know that you seem to have broken the drag and drop image insert functionality on Mac OS Sierra with the latest update?  Using the Insert menu still works, but is more cumbersome.  If I drag an image in, I get a grey box with drag handles around it (see screenshot).  If I click on the grey box, I get an error - also screenshotted.

    Hi HelenLascelles,

    Thanks for posting.

    I have tested this between versions and I can confirm that if you are drag and dropping a photo from your desktop on the Mac will not copy across into the flipchart correctly.
    This issue was not apparent in ActivInspire 2.10. 
    You can still drag and drop images from web browsers or the method that you have suggested or if you copy and paste this file this will work.

    We will raise this with our development team to review.

    Kind regards,
    Promethean Technical Support
  • Thank you!! I have just tried the copy and paste and that does work for me so thank you!
