Scapple 1.4.2 for macOS Now Available

We’re pleased to announce an update of Scapple 1.4.2 for macOS!

This is a free update for Scapple that includes compatibility fixes for macOS 13, “Ventura”. It also includes a few enhancements and a number of bug fixes.

  • Support for handling unrecognised image types has been added. In such cases, a placeholder will be substituted for the image, using the same size and position, preserving the original image data in the file. This will mainly be of impact to cross-platform users who would like to take advantage of scalable SVG graphics on Windows.
  • An additional shortcut has been added for Quick Zoom, =, mainly for keyboards that lack a physical Z key.

As always, you can review the complete list of changes on our site.

Updating the direct-sale version

If you have already seen the update notification and followed the on-screen instructions to update, you don’t need to do anything else.

Otherwise, use one of the following options:

  • Select “Check for Updates” from the “Scapple” menu within Scapple itself and follow the on-screen instructions.

  • Go to and click on the red “Download” button beneath “macOS” to download and re-install Scapple.

    Use this second method if the automatic update fails, or Scapple refuses to launch after updating.

Updating the Mac App Store version

  • Open up the Mac App Store.
  • Click on the “Updates” button in the sidebar.
  • You should see Scapple listed with an “UPDATE” button next to it—click on the “UPDATE” button.
