Depending on your hardware setup, the reaction of the fullsize editors might slow down the bigger you set the GUI size of Zebra2. Either reduce the GUI size, or, if you are on macOS, try setting your color profile to SRGB IEC61966-2.1. Note that this might be noticable even on newer generation computers.
The factory presets in the “0 Tenth Anniversary” folder have now been sorted into the appropriate category folders, and the Anniversary folder has been removed. If you had presets in this folder marked as favourites, and you want to keep the favorite markings, backup the folder, then install the update, and then put the folder back in there before you start the updated plugin for the first time.
We improved the Windows installer to prevent wrong installations and permission issues. Please check the suggested installation paths during installation.
