Windows Users: 2021-01-16: Starting with v1.8.17 the licensing system has changed on Windows which will invalidate your current license. You can re-enter your activation key to activate EnVision again.  Please see this forum post for more details.

MacOS Users: If you were brought here by an automatic upgrade from within EnVision, please download and install the Mac version above to update. Note you may have to delete the previous version of EnVision from the Applications folder first.

MacOS with M1 chip: EnVision does work on Macs with M1 chips with the use of rosetta. This means that it is not yet built to use the M1 architecture but all tests have shown that it performs extremely well in this environment. Box5 Software plans to update EnVision to use M1 natively in the near future.

Known Issues in v1.8.14 - v1.8.22: 

  • On some version of MacOS, 10.13 and lower, there are some rendering issues in Print Mode. If these issues affect you, you can remain on EnVision version 1.8.11.
