Newbies may be confused on how to use the appimage file. Here is a useful (and easy) walk-through.
Thank you, but appimage is a general Linux concept, not specific to Synfig.
Since the first time it was available under this post: https://morevnaproject.org/2016/12/23/synfig-studio-appimages-now-available-download/ it was a link to explain this concept (by David Revoy)
And from https://github.com/synfig/synfig (README.md) you need just 2 lines to know what to do
- Download the appimage file from the website.
- Left-click on the file and select
properties. Navigate to
permissionsand check the box that says
Allow executing file as program. Finally, run the file.

This information needs to be on your download page. Not everyone is knowledgeable of these things.
