    Re: Xara Designer Next

    Right, so hopefully my analogy works here. And graphics folks have to collaborate too. I can't tell you how many times I'm asked to deliver an adobe format for someone to continue to use the assets...

    Re: Xara Designer Next

    I'm going to chime in this 'evolve' business and use the other profession, of sorts, I'm involved in and that's music.

    One thing I get extremely annoyed with in the graphics community is that...

    Re: Lots of Pictures (art dump post)

    All of these are 'hand lettered' (i.e. I treat the font like illustration) except for the 'disclaimer' information on the Alk ED "Live From the Isle" label which uses the font 'Fresh Marker'. ...

    Lots of Pictures (art dump post)

    I've been working with Kniteforce Records for a little while now as well as some of their artists to do logos, graphics, covers and such so I thought I'd post what I've done for them thus far, just...

    Re: Setting Up Custom Palette Tip

    I don't think I've ever used that option. Thanks.

    I also forgot to add it's useful to play around with the attributes curve as well. It may be handy depending on how you're using the colors for...

    Re: Xara Designer Pro+ Update 20.2.0.59767

    Designer Pro is just the layout version of Xara, right? I get confused with these various versions.
  7. Re: Strange what you find in the back of your garage.

    I recently installed RiscOS for RaspberriPi. Artworks is still being updated. I haven't purchased it yet due to issues I'm sure everyone in the US can relate to right now :( However, it is on my...

    Setting Up Custom Palette Tip

    Re: Did you know... III

    What kind of script writing? Like copy-writing for sites? Done that. I'm not sure I have a soul any longer. Do you mean scripting language for computing? I know multiple. I re-iterate I'm not...
  10. Re: Please show me a great webpage made with xara.

    'Responsive design' is quite silly as a concept. At what point is someone going to literally load up a website on a pc then suddenly shoot it over their cell phone? You're really designing two...

    Re: Did you know... III

    That's my gripe...SVG is open. Yet Xara and Illustrator (and other vector programs) ignore it entirely. It's MIDI for resolution independence and nothing except Inkscape even gives it any thought. ...

    Re: So What Do You Think About This New Logo?

    Very elegant solution. Top right for me, as I'm just a fan of monochrome styling/logos. You can add color later, but if the shapes don't hold up, then color won't save it (with a couple of...

    I typically use the outliner instead of line. I think my brain just thinks that way as it is. I think my biggest gripe with Xara is really a complaint with Illustrator in that they haven't kept up...

  22. Delivering 'Pantone Files' for Printer Using Spot Colors

    Re: svg export

    Feathering doesn't work on SVG export of any version because Xara uses something different for softening edges than actual SVG. This is likely the only problem you should run into.
