    Default Bitmap/Photo Import Issue Designer Pro X

    I work with a lot of bitmap images 300 ppi (dpi) or more in resolution. After adjusting so that the Options>View "Bitmaps - Import at dpi specified.." is checked, I should be, and used to be able (in many previous versions) to drag and drop an image so that the image retained its resolution AND correct print size. Now, the image is automatically "optimized" to 96 dpi and the print size is adjusted accordingly. In other words, now if I import a 1 inch image at 300 dpi, it is automatically adjusted to 3 1/8" at 96 dpi. In the past the image would remain 1 inch at 300 dpi. I really find "automatic" operations to be annoying. Is anyone aware of a way to disable this? While I can resize manually, I loose precision, not to mention it is one additional step.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Here's what I get when the setting is to leave bitmaps unchanged.

    Take care, Mike

    there was an issue with importing 24bit [true colour] bitmaps that this should fix

    Hi Mike,

    Hmm. While I don't ever drag and drop, here's what happens for me. I also don't usually export bitmaps from Xara except for the web, but the attached is my result.

    Take care, Mike

    no thats true you cannot update the trial

    but it does look exactly like the 'bug' that was fixed by that update

    the only workaround I konw of is to use 32bit [+alpha bitmaps]
