License (Non-App Store)
- This version is fully enabled with a version 8 license code. If you are purchasing an upgrade or full download license, and do not need to run EazyDraw 8, then request a version 9 license with a reply to your purchase email. EazyDraw 9 will run with a version 8 license until September 2019. If you do not want to trigger the upgrade fee ($35) then stick with EazyDraw 8 on a High Sierra partition. Sales will switch to version 9 license codes soon, when the formal release of EazyDraw 9 is complete and robust.
- Improved performance for drawings that contain large PDF images. Apple has made changes to a technology called responsive scrolling, which added a very large CPU overhead drawing a large number of small rectangles of the large PDF. EazyDraw now swaps in a bitmap image of the PDF image for drawing to the screen. Quality should be the same. The bitmap representation is only used for screen drawing, not export or printing. The bitmap image is able to efficiently supply the large number of small subimages required by macOS for the responsive scrolling engine. The vector aspect of the PDF image works well for drawing the full image but is not optimal for drawing the large number of subregions.
- Improved performance for drawings that contain large bitmap images on layers with Color Modification. This is situation had similar issues supplying information to macOS for responsive scrolling (see above). EazyDraw now caches the fully color modified bitmap image which solves the performance issue.
