    (The person who designed this logo should have their...

    Re: A Stay-at-Home Collection

    This week I have mostly been reading 'Figures In A Landscape' by Barry England. (It sounds better if you like the TV comedy sketch show The Fast Show) ;)
  4. Re: What font is this please - distinctive lowercase t & i

    I think that this isn't a font - the t looks like it has been manipulated in a graphics program and the i may possibly be a glyph, but if so, it has been badly designed. I say this because the open...

    Re: Scribble June 2020

    Better late than ever, as they say. I used some items that I made some time ago in Xara, except for the starfield which was made using the Illustrator plugin Colliderscribe from Astute Graphics. The...

    Re: Corel Draw 2020

    I suppose the attraction (if there is such a thing) is that the asking price is for a program that one can keep and not have a monthly/yearly subscription after the purchase (at least I assume that...

    Re: Scribble May 2020

    I hope someone at MagiXara sees this piece, and seeks permission for usage on the packaging for the next iteration of the program.
    That is some serious playing around!
  8. Re: Help get rid of the Update Service popup

    Yes, it's bloody annoying, the only way I know is to use Windows Control Panel to stop MagiXara from calling home.

    A rather obvious (easy) choice, so I thought I would get it in early before I get accused of plagiarism!

    Re: 1950s flats sign

    My disillusionment with Xara started when I first zoomed in on an extrusion and discovered 'jaggies' in the extruded parts of '3D' designs.

    Re: 1950s flats sign

    It's a crappy little photo to make anything other than an educated guess, but I would say it is King Tut Black by Canada Type. ($20.)

    Re: Corner Tool

    I'm afraid that there is probably nothing to jolt Xara from its torpor, unless a few thousand volts could do the trick.

    Re: Feeling disappointed and deceived

    The expression 'sharp practice' is probably known to all and I would say that the behaviour of MagixMarketing in this regard, fits like a glove.
