    I would love to see any of your suggestions in the next version.

    It's indeed a torture in the sense that xara is still the most stable, ergonomic, fastest A to B vector program available. A couple of well targeted innovations would surely attract more graphic professionals to use it. There is no need to add a million features.

    Not much innovation has sprung in the land of vector drawing in the last years, especially in the area of simplicity and clever user interfaces.

    Hey Jon, the thing is the best code written was written 15 years ago or more when they were putting in the initial code for the super fast render engine which still beats anything on the planet for vector, then you had the extremely easy and intuitive tools that were part of the core program like easy corner rounding drop shadows, all stuff which was put in when the company was small so please don't say it takes a gang of ace programmers to make it happen. Also, the fact is they have been putting in features for users that want web design, photo manip and other tools like the ones you want for years while not focusing nearly as much on requests from people that would like to see some time spent improving the drawing/art functionality. Thanks for your comments.

    We can now change the title of this topic to: Bouton's Wish List for version x11 (because x10 didn't have them!)...

    I'll change the topic and hope someday someone with some spare time will grant one of these wishes!

    Default Bouton's Wish List for version 11: Please, or you'll never see the Shape tool again!

    Perhaps I did, Fred.

    And perhaps I didn't.

    Personally, I think this thread should be retired and a new one started.

    Why? Perhaps those at Xara who actually bother to read these posts get weary of reading through the multitude of long wish-lists, knowing that they mean little or nothing to those in charge. A new thread *might* bring back focus.

    Default Verion 11 pleas have been redirected :)

    I'm with you, Mike. You want to start a new one?

    Me, I'd only ask that members refrain from a "laundry list" of personal desires, and present a terse, serious— and from an engineer's point of view. a do-able feature or two, such as being able to make your own Pressure Profile Brush. I like the Painter-like scatter brushes of little images, but sometimes you want/need a calligraphic pen—that has a hidden (underlying) spine you can go back and edit with the Shape tool. Corel, Illustrator, Xara. Only Xara has no such feature.

    Perhaps if we keep the posts well-reasoned and brief, they'd be easier for TPTB to sift through them. It's worth a try.

    I agree completely with Masque that someone is forgetting Xara is a vector drawing program.

    RIGHT HERE


    My Best,

    Default Bouton's Group Wish List for version 11

    Gary, this is probably a web design feature but it should apply to straight graphics drawings: each composite shape should have a Xara-generated Name that reflects some of its basic attribute in its filename rather than producing a string of numbers for png/jpgs that change on each publish. It is so wasteful having to Name all your own assets manually, especially imported images. Circle-diameter would be the simplest, Grouped_shape-width-height-rotation-live. Some shorthand that gives meaning to a blob. Images would be easy: Picture-name-scale-rotation-live.
    I don't care what it is, they simply should not be arbitrary numbers, more usable for humans. After all it is there to do our bidding.
