Suggestions about GeoGebra 6 for mac OS

Hello GeoGebra community,


First of all, I would like to thank you guys for developing and improving GeoGebra everyday.


I have been trying to use GeoGebra 6 (GGB6) for mac OS since, I believe GeoGebra 5 (GGB5) is no longer going to be updated.


I think, in general, GGB6 works fantastic and I understand why you are trying to have an standard interface for all devices (desktops and tablets). Of course, it has a new interface and it will take some time to get use to it.


I just have a few suggestions that I hope you can add to GGB6 for the mac OS.


1. For some reason, I cannot copy and paste in GGB6. Sometimes I write some GGB scripts in other text processors, and then I bring it to GGB. In GGB5 works fine the copy and paste but not with GGB6. The online GGB6 version works fine though. Could you please allow Copy/Paste in GGB6 for mac OS? Or maybe it is available, but I have not found it.


2. GGB5 has the fantastic feature of dragging any View (as a separable window) and place it anywhere you want. So you can have a great combinations of Views (CAS, Grafics1,2 and 3D). However, GGB6 does not have that feature, or I have not been able to find it. So with GGB6, you can get one horizontal-view option, see examples below.


Example GGB6 Views:

f50acac4cbff669a7070d7a16a6abfe3


Example GGB5 views:

28341fdeb13eb445fb3badb88c72435c


3. Finally. Is there a way to open the Object Properties in GGB6 in a separate window? This is something I can do in GGB5 and I find it very useful since I can keep all the other Views open.


Well, I think that"s all. Maybe there is a link where I can read and learn how to use all the options and features of GGB6 and find a way to do all my requests, but I have not found it. Maybe you are going to keep updating the classic GGB5, so I can keep use it. In any case, I do appreciate all the effort you guys make for helping and supporting all GeoGebra users like me :)


Thank you guys, and have a great day.

I have the same problem. Why does Copy and Paste work in GGB 6 for Windows, but not for Mac. This is a big problem, as I can't use a lot of Skripting commands

2) Open the "View" menu then you can drag around the views (using the icon at top-right)

Please can you tell me how I get the new version (v400)? I am so frustrated not being able to Copy and Paste from Excel (mac) into Geogebra online. Any advice gratefully received.

The Mac Portable version is always newer than the Mac App Store (but doesn't auto-update)
