- Instaling latest patch
- Creating a new map
- Using drawing tools & symbols
- Exporting the map to an image file
What does not
- Printing. This crashes the program. A workaround here is to save the map to an image file and print that.
- Fonts. The font sizes are not displayed correctly, causing a minor difficulty when viewing/using maps crated on Windows. Oddly enough, this seems to only happen after installing the latest update (I write oddly enough because this used to be a problem with CC3 as well)
What was not tested
- Installing add-ons. Since installing patches works, addons probably works as well.
No special steps or workarounds are required to get this up and running, installation is straight-forward, and the program runs out of the box. The only reasons for not rating this higher than silver is the print and font issues.

When opening existing maps, you'll find that the fonts don't render the same size as on Windows.
This can be fixed by changing the font properties of the existing text in the map and unchecking the 'Use New Metrics' option. This should cause the fonts to render the same size (extremely close anyway) as they did on Windows, and they'll still display fine if you open that map in Windows.
You should obviously keep this option off for any new text you place if you want to be able to open the map in Windows and have it look the same.
