    Would have liked that GIF much more back in the 1960s/1970s...

    Re: Converting AI lines to shapes

    Those AI files may not actually be un-closed shapes if opened in AI or CD, etc.

    I myself have only had this issue in Xara products when the source is from a stock site.

    Re: 300 dpi import on pic / BUG

    once resized and it is the size on-screen, and if the effective dpi/ppi (which is what the status bar is letting you know, it's not changing pixels) is acceptable for print, who cares? All that...
  10. Re: Color with Gradient Tool no longer working properly - Native plugin

    Turn the black plate on...

    I never really do this in XP&GD/XDP. But one can do it and retain p.tone values. The initial p.tone is really a circular gradient-filled rectangle above the image set to...
  11. Re: Color with Gradient Tool no longer working properly - Native plugin

    BTW, if I can fake it out of XP&GD and it be for all practical purposes a duotone, I think Xara can do it right...
  12. Re: Color with Gradient Tool no longer working properly - Native plugin

    Might just be true.

    Then again...we have a good list here with simple things that may never get added.
  13. Re: Color with Gradient Tool no longer working properly - Native plugin

    While using the conotone option one cannot specially do more than two colors, in the below, I duplicated the image and removed the FX, then used the conotone option.

    Re: How to create a 16-page A5 booklet...

    Export as single pages in what is called "reader order." So page 1 to 16.

    Open the pdf in Adobe Reader (or likely any/most pdf reader). From Adobe Reader you can print a booklet. You will need to...
  15. Re: How to load ICC color profile in Xara Xtreme 5?

    You're welcome, Fred.

    I was gobsmacked when I first read about him and his art. I do silly little business related things. I seriously doubt I would have the patience to do one of those drawing in...

  17. Re: How to load ICC color profile in Xara Xtreme 5?

    Oh, Gary, are you tempting me to do my typical rant ;))

    Ultimately the answer is yes. It would remove some of the stress/worry/guess work out of the process.

    However, as you have demonstrated,...
  18. Re: How to load ICC color profile in Xara Xtreme 5?

    I don't. Other than to beat the color management (very) dead horse.

    Xara applications are not color managed so one cannot "load" an ICC/ICM color profile. One can only use an output profile when...

    if you did use text styles, did you actually set tabs and update the text style?

    If you want, there is a Registry entry that will shut off the automatic placement of text inside, along with the pop-up. This setting returns the old behavior without removing the ability to place...

    Like I said, just hitting escape works no matter what. Even with the text tool active before I begin drawing out the text area.

    If I have multiple objects selected, choose the text tool and have...

    The only time that happens here is if I have the shape selected. If I do have a shape selected, like right after drawing a shape, and choose to add a text column or a text line, I hit the escape key...
  23. Re: Pantone, CMYK, RGB and Hex differences in Xara Designer Pro X

    Just to finish up as I ran out of gumption yesterday...I should have reported the color numbers of the change that a proper profile did, in the case of ID and didn't occur, in the case of XP&GD.

  24. Re: Pantone, CMYK, RGB and Hex differences in Xara Designer Pro X

    Yes, it is OK. No, it isn't OK.

    In other words, it depends.

    I'll use a real color value of one element from an ad from this last spring. This ad was ran in several magazines in the US and in a...
  25. Re: Pantone, CMYK, RGB and Hex differences in Xara Designer Pro X

    You cannot have correct values without color management. This is especially true of converted spot color.

    With CMYK values, one doesn't even know what the pdf transformation will do until the pdf...
