Hi Shir,

Thank you for contacting us regarding Metro Studio. 
Currently our Metro Studio only supports on Windows but the feedback that you have provided has been already added to our internal feature/incident management system. 
The Metro Studio team is constantly reviewing feedback and initiating action as required and will be acting upon your feedback also.
Please feel free to contact us with any other feedback/questions.

Regards

Hi, Muthukuma,

Do Syncfusion have any updates regards this possibility (Metro Studio on my Mac computer) for now (2016 year)?

Thanks!

I would also be interested in using this on my Mac


MS Mariappan S Syncfusion Team June 21, 2016 10:48 AM UTC

Hi Tim, 

Thanks for your feedback  

We have already added it to our feature requested list. This feature will be available in any our upcoming release. 

Regards, 
Mariappan S.  



TI Tim June 21, 2016 10:50 AM UTC

Thanks Mariappan.  When is the next release expected?


MS Mariappan S Syncfusion Team June 21, 2016 12:27 PM UTC

Hi Tim, 

We have already added this request to our internal feature requests database but have no plans to work on this in the near future. The delay is mainly due to other higher priority items on the list that we have to work on first. Another reason for delay is that Metro Studio is written using WPF and relies on several windows API’s so it would almost require a complete rewrite to make it work on a Mac. We will update this thread if we make any progress in this direction. 

Sorry for the confusion. 

Regards, 
Mariappan S.

Two questions.

One, why not just release a version of the icons that are image files so anyone can download and use them?

Two, have you considered redoing this as an Electron app? http://www.codemag.com/article/1603041? It worked for Visual Studio Code.  There are a lot of designers on Mac OS and making these available to them would greatly increase your visibility.

Hi Christopher, 
 
Thanks for your update 
 
Query 1: One, why not just release a version of the icons that are image files so anyone can download and use them? 
 
We have maintained icons in the MetroStudio as path file. Therefore, we have provided an option to export the icon from the path in MetroStudio instead of downloading directly as an image file. Please let us know if you need further assistance on this. 
 
Query 2: Two, have you considered redoing this as an Electron app? http://www.codemag.com/article/1603041? It worked for Visual Studio Code.  There are a lot of designers on Mac OS and making these available to them would greatly increase your visibility. 
 
Currently, we do not have plan to provide MetroStudio support for the Mac OS. We will consider this feature request in any of our upcoming releases.

Keerthana J

Hello,

Any update on this?  In case you guys aren't aware of the developments in the 21st century, everything is moving to cross platform.  Forcing your loyal Mac customers to essentially have some kind of VM to run windows for your products is going to cost you clients.

Come on get with it.


VR Vijayalakshmi Roopkumar Syncfusion Team May 31, 2018 11:29 AM UTC

Hi Richard,

We planned to implement web application for Metro Studio, which can be used in any OS. Hope this would help you to develop in Mac OS. We are currently working on this and it will be available soon. Please check our website constantly for further update on this.

Regards,
Vijayalakshmi V.R.


JR Jose Rodolfo Ledezma Cortes July 20, 2018 10:17 PM UTC

Hi, do you have any news about that?


VR Vijayalakshmi Roopkumar Syncfusion Team July 23, 2018 11:54 AM UTC

Hi Jose

At present, we don't have plans to implement web application for MetroStudio which is compatible for any OS. However we would consider it as a feature request and we would be include it in any of our upcoming volume release.

Regards
Vijayalakshmi V.R.
