    Question How i import or open extern Files to Xara?

    Hello
    My English is not so good but i want to ask something.
    How can i open or import extern Files in Xara 3D?
    I convert .gif Files to .wmf and.emf but i can't open the Files.
    Is there a possibilty to open or import extern Files to make a Animation with this in Xara?
    Maybe a extern Picture in gif or something?
    regards

    Xara 3D works with vector formats and bitmaps as 'skins' create yer shape in vector and use the bitmap as a texture...

    Welcome to TG ptpfyl.

    As Scotty says you can import bitmaps as textures. Go to Textures Options, select the asset you wish to add the texture to, tick the texture check box, then Load Texture button. (Note: Text sides doesn't load the texture to the sides as you'd expect) This opens the import window, which can import various bitmap files.

    Or you can go to File / Import & import either .xar/.web files (native Xara files) or Windows Metafiles (.emf, .wmf)

    Ok thanks it works.
    Another Question: Can i change the Background with a Texture or some one else or can i just change the color?

    EDIT: I have it now i must change the Texture with the Option Background cool...:-).

    Can i animate the Background? Or is it not possible to move the Background?

    Glad you sorted it. I don't think you can animate the background.

    You can import external text by copying iy from the source and paste it into Xara. You can do the same for images.

    Else you can save the source and import it using File/Import.

    Hello
    Ok copy and past with the Edit Option works, thanks.
    But when i copy a symbol comes a square in Xara.
    Is there a Option to expand the Fonts?
    If the character is not contained in Xara, only a quadrangle comes out...

    That's because they are bitmap's , not vector shapes.
