Ipe 7.2.19 is available in source form, as a Windows binary, as a MacOS app, and as Linux packages on the Ipe homepage at

This fixes a number of bugs (two of which can actually cause Ipe to crash).

The only new feature is that you can now copy and paste images into Ipe directly from the file browser on Linux and Windows (that is, copy the image file in the file browser, then press Ctrl+V in Ipe).  This will nicely interpret jpeg files as such, and also works from the "Photos" app (the standard image viewer) on Windows 10.

A long-standing bug that is now finally fixed is that bookmarks in PDF files exported using '-markedviews' work as they should.



Ipe 7.2.19 (2020-06-14)

 * Improve pasting bitmaps on Windows and Qt: you can now paste images
   directly from the file browser, with the additional benefit that
   jpeg files are now treated as jpeg images.  This also works from
   the Photos app in Windows 10 and e.g. in "xviewer" (#328).

 * Fix text object colour not updating when it is changed from the
   selector (bug #333, this was broken by 7.2.15).

 * Fix bookmarks not working when exporting with -markedview (bug #331).
 * Fix crash in ink mode when current color is not symbolic (bug #326).

 * On Win32, fix transient selector events causing an attribute
   change.  (Fixes bug #327.)

 * Delay showing "Running Latex" dialog by 300ms to avoid showing it
   when Latex is fast (Windows and Qt).

 * Run Latex after paste actions, undo, and redo, where it might be
