Running InkScape on OSX Mavericks (incl. multi-monitor off screen fix)

I started getting into InkScape recently, but struggled to get it running well on a multi-monitor set up of OSX Mavericks.

First up: Install XQuartz:

Then: When you run Inscape for the first time, you'll be asked where X11 is?
Select Browse, then select to /Applications/Utilities/

If done correctly, Inscape will launch, but fill up the incorrect screen.

So click on XQuartz in the dock. Go to it's preferences from the menu bar, and make sure Full-screen mode is enabled.

To change which monitor Inscape will be rendered on, go to the Dock, right click on XQuartz > options > select which Desktop it should be displayed on.
