Hello, I am wondering if Canva can be made portable.
They do offer a Canva Free and a Canva Pro for 119.99
If possible, portable app can me made with the same features as Canva Free.

Launched in 2013, Canva is an online design and visual communication platform with a mission to empower everyone in the world to design anything and publish anywhere.
Unsure about license but I do know they offer a Canva free and a Canva Pro for $119.99


ShareX didn't work

Submitted by PortableGood on April 6, 2023 - 8:37pm

I gave ShareX a try via the PAP on a Win7 box, and it didn't work. Nothing happened upon launching the app.

I'm not sure if it's because the app isn't compatible with Win7 or there is an issue. If it's the former, probably a good idea to improve the UX; if it's the latter, well, then this is a bug report. Smile

XnViewMP64 Portable: Selected language ignored

Submitted by Exoner on April 1, 2023 - 7:31am


I'm using this version (copied from the 'about'-screen:

XnView MP Windows
Version 1.4.3 64bits (Feb 25 2023)

Libformat version 7.138

I installed XnViewMP64 Portable using the PortableApps-UI. The installation was easy, no errors, no problems. The application was installed with a German user-interface and runs smoothly.

I launched Tools->Options.
I set the language to 'English'.
I restarted XnVMP64.
The language was still set to 'German'.

Submitted by Lexicon13 on March 6, 2023 - 5:52pm

I'm having am issue where inkscape will not import .png or .svg files.
where it produces a white and red "x" icon on screen or states it has failed to open the requested file.
display mode is normal
This seems to have started recently as these are png's and svg's that i created with inkscape.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Tested in multiple drives and folders. If the folder has a long name with spaces, the program will launch and close immediately. This behavior does not happen with any other program from, that I use (and I use a lot of them).

I think it's the same bug this guy was experiencing!

EDIT.: I did the following tests:

Krita: where to put custom python plugins?

Submitted by cinaeco on January 19, 2023 - 2:49am

First off, discoverning portableapps has been fantastic! Thanks to all who make this possible!

I have been placing my custom python plugins into KritaPortable\App\Krita64\share\krita\pykrita. This has worked well until I recently ran a newer portableapps installer to upgrade Krita, and this removed my plugins.

I then tried to place them in KritaPortable\Data\krita\pykrita, but my plugins have disappeared from there as well. It seems that this folder gets emptied automatically or something?

Gimp 2.10.32 Rev 1

Submitted by mrw2day on January 17, 2023 - 11:54am

For some time I get a notifier when I am in Gimp that there is a updated version Gimp 2.10.32 Rev 1. I finally looked up what the revision does...and although it does not address anything that I would be concerned with...I was wondering if there was a reason the portableapp for Gimp has not been updated.
