If I delete the preferences file it works again (/home/username/.XXXXX.Digitizer.props). This is 2.6.1 on Linux (1.6.0_24).

Discussion

  • Thanks for the bug report. I think I know exactly what is wrong. I'll try to get it fixed before Christmas if at all possible.

  • This bug should be fixed with release 2.6.2. Let me know if that does not fix the problem.
