    Running Inkscape 1.1 on my iMac vs the 0.92 on the Raspberry pi.
    I’ve used the mac (with iPad-sidecar) to draw .svg images using Inkscape. Then transport the .svg to the Pi on a thumb drive, and the pi plots ’em on the Axidraw.

    So I’m flipping between 2 different revisions of Inkscape, as well as 2 operating systems. Lots of “That menu item doesn’t exist” and “That tool doesn’t seem to work here”. Dialogs are different. Lots of wasted time hunting for things.

    I think I may give up on the Pi, and find an old mac to run the Axidraw. Easier than juggling versions.

    Sigh … after an hour of prodding, I’ve discovered Raspberrypi 4B is a 32 bit system.

    It appears that all Inkscape releases since 0.92 (2019) are for 64 bit systems.

    The Inkscape 0.92 Preferences for “Interface” doesn’t have origin selection. This was added in version 1.0

    Using old 0.92 version also explains why I’ve been confused using current documentation.
