    Re: Xara Designer Pro+ Update 20.3.0.59963

    Save a template file with the profile set how you want. If you're sure you always want that profile then make it the default template. Same as with default colours, styles, brushes, etc. This is the...
  2. Re: you want a new vector tool rather than a rehash ?

    The Shape Painter tool does something close to what you want, I think.

    With the shape selected, go to that Shape painter and choose "Warp" from the dropdown at the right hand end. Then drag the...
  3. Re: version 18 is too slow compared to version 17, not usable for me

    The XDP release cycle is controlled by Magix. I'm not sure when the next one is scheduled but the fixes will obviously be released in that product too.

    Pro+ is under our (Xara's) control, we are...

  5. Re: version 18 is too slow compared to version 17, not usable for me

    No, this is a specific problem in the Selector tool.

    Have the issues with large documents and repeating objects been reported elsewhere? What is the scenario?
  6. Re: version 18 is too slow compared to version 17, not usable for me

    Hi,

    We have accidentally introduced an unwanted "order of complexity" issue with large groups in the Selector tool.

    This will be fixed in a patch soon.
  7. Re: Silly auto-scrolling problem in Xara Designer Pro

    Designer is one of the few programs that make use of the Scroll Lock key on the keyboard - and that's probably what you pressed by accident.

  8. Re: You can't normally reshape an image with the Mould Tool ...

    Art brushes offer a sort of workaround in Xara Designer that can take a full colour bitmap as input and "mould" it without tracing.

    The shape of the "mould" is formed by the curve of the line, the...

    Hi Windjamer,

    Re: Lines and shapes not printing

    The tree shape is very complicated. You may need to simplify it for some printer drivers.

    You don't have to lose any detail, just break it up into a number of smaller shapes.

    A graphics card won't help Designer directly very much (I'm afraid) but programs are increasingly making use of the hardware on graphics cards and that includes Windows itself.

  13. Re: Xara Page & Layout Designer 11---Desperately need help on one issue

    Sorry everyone, I deleted what I said in my earlier post because I thought I was wrong.

    I suspect the green and red rectangles are because "Show Print Borders" is enabled in the Window menu.

    Re: where are the red magnetic snappy lines?

    Try double-clicking on the Live Drag indicator (little arrow-on-rectangle icon) in the status line to turn on "Live dragging".

    I was hoping that disabling the dark UI might give a much clearer improvement than that. The Options dialog still looks horribly slow to me!

    We don't completely understand this problem either! Some people see it, some don't. When we debug it we get so far and then the problem spontaneously goes away.

    Re: Mould in Xara

    Yes, exactly. The code behind the art brushes could be used to upgrade the mould feature, and possibly implement a mesh fill feature, - but it's a management decision.

  23. Re: XARA's Designer ProX turning text to shapes automatically????

    The program will never convert text to shapes just because you save a file - whether it's grouped or not.

    Re: Simple request from a simple mind

    Drag and drop also lets you attach arrowhead designs to either end of a line.

    And the straight line tool has separate dropdown menus for start and end arrowheads.
