The download button on CATS seems to work very randomly. On most projects, I have to click several times on it before the download window shows up, and it doesn't work at all on one of my projects (animated fog right#1). I hope I'll find a solution since it took forever to render.

Could you record a video of it not popping up? (entire desktop please)
I can't seem to reproduce this issue.

The button is extremely simple code-wise - it is supposed to instantly open a window and that's that.

Ooooh I get it ! If you move the cursor even by one pixel before releasing the button, then it won't work. You have to be perfectly still. And since my new mouse is very sensitive and my cursor speed is higher and my new monitor is more high res, it's harder for me to stay still.
Anyway, regular buttons normally work even if you move the cursor before releasing the button. That's why I couldn't grasp the problem.

A new version of CATS is available.
It's faster, better, stronger.
