    If you think there’s something fishy about a tutorial with all pictures and arrows but no text, you’re right on the money! March’s Guest Tutorial by Bob “Iamtheblues” Taylor is an all pictorial lesson in how to draw the fish, more or less pictured above. Get familiar with more of Xara’s tools and their novel uses, as Bob teaches a man (and women) how to fish.

    Post your catch in this thread and be sure to tell Bob how much you've enjoyed fishing with him.

    Hi,

    Have started on the tutorial but can you explain what the symnbols under 8 mean? I have designer pro x 10 and searched for them on the buttonpalette but the symbols that appear to belong under the arrange-combine shapes option are greyed out.
    When I select the blend and access the arrange-come shapes the only available option is add shapes. The break shapes is also greyed out.

    Thanks in advance

    Hélène

    Hi Hélène—

    Bob, excuse me for butting into your thread.

    The first button stands for Arrange>Convert to Editable shapes (Ctrl+Shift+S). The second is Ungroup (Ctrl+U).

    Don't feel badly about not knowing every one of the 4 billion icons in Xara!

    My Best,

    Gary
