    All the basic tools work like in the windows version. Text tool is a bit buggy, you have to change font once to write.

    OT I'm thinking to myself here, would there be any demand for a beginners-guide-to-vector-graphics-with-xaralx site? I got a site set up on a CMS (with easy to use content adding capabilities) just waiting for content. I participated in a vector gfx course (on corel) in school some years ago so I have some kind of picture of what should be included. Maybe this should be in another thread....

    There are a lot of very nice tutorials to Xara and sure you can make very helpfull tutorials. What I am looking for is a simple describing of different tools. E g. I can not figure out how to crop selections in Xara.. That is so elementary that I didn't want to ask...

    Hi

    you could have a look at these videos

    http://www.xara.com/us/products/xtreme/tutorials-demos/

    they are windows based so may not all be fully applicable to linux - but they cover the basics..

    the basic way of cropping is to place a rectangle over the picture - select both and intersect shapes [ctrl+3] - this should work in any version of xtreme

    this is covered in the changing objects videos...

    if you have more question we will always help if we can - good luck

    BTW if you have the rectangle set to no fill it is easier to see what you are cropping, I cannot remember if that is covered in the video tutorials or not..
