    Re: Smart Ellipse to Circle Challenge

    Again, sorry, but it is the Librarian who happens to be an orang-utan. All other allusions make him go Librarian-poo (apeshit).

    Re: FTP error: Timeout was reached

    Xara creates a folder in %localappdata%/Temp/; instead, you just perform a Website Export and FTP that folder's contents.

    Rule-off with a Smart Labelled Line

    Dear Xara...

    I copied and pasted a Smart Labeled Line as an Embedded Object into a Text Box.

    Bug - the dimensioning does not update when the box is resized.

    Didier, your code ought to work across Main and Variants.

    Re: 2 pages with duplicate meta desc.

    Not particularly useful as you are tying down a link to an Internet URL.

    The only (insane) approach is to force a redirect in your .htaccess file.

    I am not a fan of SEO contortions.

    This SEO checker seemingly cannot differentiate that both URLs are the same page.

    Re: Space Force Logo

    I think they could use the MS Edge logo, which has the edge of space and a warp, all without words.
    Just change the colours to red, white and blue - no one would notice.

    Thanks Jeff, the font part is incidental.

    You had to create a brush (dots) to achieve this.
    Unfortunately, you didn't factor in any colour change for dots itself.

    Re: Ten Year Challenge - Dotted Lines

    Again, Xara has done this for dashes, I am asking why it is so hard for Xara to do the same for dots. "Most DTP programs have it": Xara Desktop is a DPT application.

    Sorry Gary, you are. I want a Dotted Line pattern. All Xara provides is a Dash pattern.

    There is no Blend Tool in XWD(P).
