no fix in the latest update..
can I just say that I don't do body text in xara
but no matter which way I make drawings - vector raster scan all three whatever - I always do the 'paste-up' and the lettering in xara
and when lettering speech/text in cartoons kerning in particular is crucial for legibility, especially when the art is going to be reduced in print to a size that is within a given range rather than fixed - tracking often looks too mechanical [edit: especially where you have a mix of font-size/bold/italic], kerning each space is usually far preferable.. and this flyout is dreadful
it would be acceptable if you could toggle it open/closed - it's having it disappear after each operation that is the pita for me...
