Re: Two questions about Xara Flash
As BP has mentioned, Xara can not tween most effects. You will have to convert the live effect shapes into bitmaps of each letter and arrange them a a single group.
Name this group >Flashbrain and then copy it onto the second frame. The > (more than) symbol directs the decelleration of the tween.
Change the duration of the first frame to 1 second.
Go to the File/ Page options/ Page size and change the 'Outer margin' value to something like 4000 pixels.
Set zoom factor to 25% or similar so that you can see the page along with the whole of the left side of the margin.
Go to the first frame and move the 'Flashbrain' text to the furthest left of the margin.
Ungroup the Flashbrain text and move the letter 'n' to the left side of the border.
Select the whole word and open the 'alignment window' (Shift+Control+L) set Horizontal to 'Distribute equally spaced'.
Group this text again and apply the name again (>Flashbrain).
