Well of course it’s up to you what you do but these inks were deprecated for a long time and were not able to be supported after the skia upgrade. We also had to update the IDE to remove/replace their use. It was a while back and I didn’t keep the stack unfortunately but I wrote a script that iterated all the open stacks and found unsupported inks and then listed the object name so I could go and edit to find an equivalent or just remove it.
On the up side you can now use color emoji’s ;-)
