Features

  • A popular request: you can run Icons8 as a standard window application, not just menu app. A must for those of you who use two displays.
  • Icons8 can stay on top of other windows now. Optionally, it can become opaque. Try using various options in the preferences.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed an annoying bug with drag-n-drop. Dragging works each time now.
  • Fixed some rare bugs that caused crashes.

Thanks for your crash reports! You’re our heroes.
