    Does anyone know if the latest update for El Capitan,10.11.3, has been tested with Artpro 14.1?

      That's 14.1.1 BTW

    2. ArtPro 14.1.1 is the first version of ArtPro to officially support El Capitan.

      We have tested with the latest update available at the time of release (early October 2015).

      So if anyone runs into any issues that they think may be related to an OS update, please report them so we can investigate.

    Did anybody ever had problems in saving the graphics file on exit, on a network share? It happens sometimes that, instead of saving the correct file, a file named something like XXYYZZ1234567_Z_ is created, and is not usable. We have in this case to save the file locally and then move it on the share. Any idea? Thank you
