    Re: Bitmap Tracer Blues

    Thanks for the video showing how you reproduced your result. As I suspected, my inability to reproduce the same trace result was because the final image posted was post-edited and not representative...

    Re: Bitmap Tracer Blues

    It would be down to the individual to decide whether a particular result is good enough for them. You can use the retroactive smoothing slider in the shape editor tool to remove some of the rough...

    Re: Bitmap Tracer Blues

    Xara's tracer does a great job with simple flat-coloured logos like this as evidenced by the attached mini tutorial. In fairness, it is absolutely not intuitive how to achieve this quality of result...

    Importing photoshop .abr brush files?

    I noticed there are lots of free photoshop brushes available around the web. Any way to import these .abr files into Xara now it supports art brushes? Pity there isn't a google-fonts/font awesome...
  5. Re: New Magnetic Lasso Tool in Photo & Graphic Designer 365

    Nice demonstration Gary. I've not used any 365 features yet. I've always felt a quick select tool would be useful to paint in and out region selections on bitmaps, like many pixel editors have, to...

    Re: Creating Trading Game Cards Using XDPX9

    Hi, I've produced a tutorial which explains how to achieve a trace of a line sketch with the best results using Xara. See chapter 8 (tutorials) of the course. Also attached an example of the result...

    Yes, sorry. I called them "advanced POPUP layer commands" on my time index. Chapter 4 (2/2) 0:31:10 advanced popup layer commands.

    Re: Scaling issue workaround?

    Interestingly, I've just updated my course discussing this web feature. It is known as "group squashing" (also search help file) and applies only in web documents. When a group is...

    Re: Why such poor results with Background Erase?

    There's definitely a knack to getting good results with this tool that experience can hone. I still feel that this tool is too trial-and-error though with its current implementation. Having to...
  12. Re: Will Xara Ever Create a DTP Program (like PagePlus)?

    To be honest, I'd not thought this through thoroughly. Perhaps I was thinking of something like OneNote where you can slide page titles in the navpane left and right to associate together (had to...

    My feedback


    Basic text handling (the list you have)
    The behaviour of undo after typing lots of text. It's not like Word; instead it undoes one letter at a time which makes it fairly...

    Thanks. I've added permutations of that search criteria to the keywords of all videos; hopefully search hits will improve.


    No scripts; just a succinct plan then improvised delivery, similar to...

    Re: Just Release: Xara Designer Pro X11

    It seems locked at 25 fps when uncompressed. When set to something like Microsoft Video 1 compression, the set frame rate is honoured on export, so try that.
  16. Sticky: Re: Xara Designer Pro education course learning and training resource

    I came across some concern about volume, so I've re-rendered the quieter parts in all videos (recorded before I understood how to use a mic properly it would seem... -.-). Now older-ear friendly :) ...

    If you can figure out a way to do that given that I can't link to a specific video (as they will be deleted frequently if an update is needed--only the playlist is constant), then let me know. You...

    Re: Freehand tool. Trace mode missing.

    V11 of the course I'm working on will not mention it. It never seemed to work well after V6 anyway and produced bad results generally, as Phil says. You'll notice that in fact, I use V6 of Xara to...

    Sorry to hear this; very sad. Hope his family are OK. His legacy input and support for the forums and elsewhere will remain for future visitors to benefit from.

    Re: 32-bit memory limit removal utility

    In line with the competition, Xara will no doubt make a true 64-bit version of the software eventually which should remove the need for this utility. Just have to wait I guess.
