Please, someone tell me that I am missing something!!
I want to export the words "contact us" which are in white, with an internal bevel applied in the attached file. I want the background to be transparent (ie no blue and black lines to be shown).
I select the words "contact us" (converted to a shape so as not to upset PCs without the same fonts as me), and press CTRL+SHIFT+E
I select the button showing the wine glass on a transparent background, and the blue/black lines vanish from the preview.
Only, so too does most of the white from my bevel. Display the produced GIF on the indended stripey background, and it looks daft - with no white in it.
If I change the Xara file's background from white to, say, RED, the same thing happens - the white is removed.
Yet if I save the Xara X file and load it into CorelXARA2 (making sure the bevel is converted to shapes), I can do a normal CTRL+SHIFT+E, check the Transparent option, and everything is well. It removes the stripes but keeps the white in place.
I don't like the new export dialogue box at all - I much prefer the old one. Unless I can save the colours used and re-use the exact same colours over a series of exports, I can't see any point in the whole dialogue box - other that what was in Xara 2 already.
The only proper and useful improvement I can see is the ability to preview a JPEG in one pane and a GIF in the other.
Oh, and please build a "Don't tell me this again" toggle button in the error window saying that I must save my Xara document before Xara can include the Design Notes (for the Dreamweaver integration)!
