    Re: expanding text in a box

    It is Xara Designer Pro X only.

    XWDP uses it for stretchy buttons and in some stretchy stickers.
    It is therefore feasible to deconstruct a design and change it to exactly your need.

    Re: expanding text in a box

    Are you asking about the little-understood Stretches property? If so, it the Extend > Vertically option.

    Only available in XDPX through the Names gallery:

    Re: Xara Cloud Update - Release 68

    The new Add Panel is useful but i have two issues.

    The first is a UI one in clicking any of the "Add a" icons, I would expect the panel to close again.

    The second is the paucity of assets:

    Re: Charts - paste CSV unformatted text?

    If it is CSV data, there is no formatting so with the Text tool use Edit > Paste > Paste text; this works.

    If formatted, elsewhere there is a Thread about using the small Pure Text application.

    Re: Charts - paste CSV unformatted text?

    In version 16.3, switch to the QuickShape tool.
    Select the Pie Chart.

    There is a Green Control, top-left - click this.

    A Data Input area will open to the right.
    Switch to the Text tool....

  11. Re: Update to Xara Designer Pro X 16 - or not?

    Helle, the "offer" will repeat so don't get conned into buying before testing.

    No. You drag onto any part of the Bar regions (not the page itself).

    My noddie solution is to open the application and drag the file into it.
    Works for all 7 versions of Xara I currently have.

    I have little problem with 2560 x 1440 at 100%.
    Sometimes I remember I have a utility: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/sysinternals/downloads/zoomit, which has a LIve Zoom function.

    Re: Text inside groups with stick to top

    Well done. It is great to have a CSS convert. The main other benefit is the buttons scale up beautifully.

    Now all we need is to get Xara on board.
