Hi Monique,

how do you launch Ipe?  Try launching from the command line, and
checking exactly what path is being used.  I can only guess that you
still have 7.1.5 installed somewhere else (that is, you have more than
one Ipe installation on your computer, and the wrong one is being used).

You could try a  find / -name "Ipe*"

Ipe does not contain any code to update/downgrade itself, and no "if
Monique" either :-)
