  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. Re: Pantone, CMYK, RGB and Hex differences in Xara Designer Pro X

    @behzad & @Ander

    The issue isn't that the same colors defining spot colors do not hit a pdf. They do. But spot colors in Xara applications are only truly useful if you use them as spot...

    Re: Image Squishy Squashy solved for v15.0

    Does setting the registry entry for EnableGroupSquash = 1 work (it's under the Options | Dragging section)?

    Re: Cannot download Content Catalog, Xara 16

    When I installed the latest revision the other day I received a message that XP&GD could not create/update the catindex file. I don't know what effect that had as I have been a bit tied up.

    Master pages would be of great benefit to the web side of things and then be subsequently useful for the print side of things.

    And thanks for the history lesson. I didn't know that about Mickey Studios and the gloved hands.

  23. Re: What small workflow improvements would you like to see in the future?

    I *think* that behind the scenes, all the RGB models, of which HSV is, they are all 0–255. As long as Xara doesn't change any of the input methods (i.e., the present input screens in the Color...

    Another small request.

    Instead of the either/or situation of the Options dialog for setting color units to 0–255 or percentage, how about the Color Editor simply using 0–255 for the RGB color...
