Download blocks as images does not work in Macbook pro and Safari. It does work in Macbook pro and  Google Chrome.

Yes, Apple Safari is a little different to other Browsers. Currently, Chrome or Firefox are a best as they have greater compatibility. Microsoft Edge/Internet Explorer is also lacking.

Which version of macOS and Safari are you using? How large is the project? I tested with macOS 10.14.4 Mojave and Safari 12.1 and it worked for a small project.

Hi Evan,

I worked on a MacBook Pro 8 GB, with MacOS Mojave v 10.14.3. and tested with Safari Version 12.0.3 (14606.4.5).  

Screen1 of my small project has 8 event handlers, 7 procedures and 21 variables. With all blocks expanded.

Right click/Download blocks: MIT AI2 prod and test with Safari gives attached messages but Chrome downloads them. 

The above results are the same for my big project with 150 event handlers and procedures and around 240 variables.

Ok. Looks like this is a bug in Safari 12.0 and was fixed in Safari 12.1. Here's the relevant bug in Webkit. I think we can put a small patch in to resolve this though as the workaround seems straightforward.

Regards,
Evan
