    Kate,

    It takes time to plan and execute the addition to, a change to, and/or the removal of features. For some of this stuff, wouldn't be prudent to consult people who use an application when changes to or the removal of features is part of the plan? Wouldn't that potentially save some time, effort and money for other items on Xara's To-Do list?

    That's what a modern, responsive company does. It doesn't rely solely on its own devices without input from outside the Ivory Tower.

    I don't understand Your and Xaras/Magix logig.
    Nobody want a war but things they were in and missed we want back.
    Why do Xara steps backward when the whole grafic world go forward?

    In a tread i promissed angry with Magix. Mybe the angry came without Magix too but what you deliver with v15 is the top!!!
    Vielen Dank für den Scheiß!

    I suspect that the on-line direction that is being pursued is forcing Xara into a design corner.

    Here is a badly crafted example: v15 Hubris.xar

    Acorn
    Acorn - installed and active Xara software: Cloud+/Pro+, XDPX, XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7, Xara Xtreme 5, back through time (to CC's Artworks).

    Takes 1-2 seconds in v 15.

    But, it isn't dynamic. I guess at the aspect ratio and it's close, dunno how accurate.

    ok I calmed down a bit...

    it is galling to have to wait for improvements on the drawing side... it has been sorta tiresome to be told, repeatingly, that we do not have to update until we see features we want ... but can you not see it is now rubbing salt into the wound to remove a feature that we use all the time...

    speed and ease is of the essence here or we would all be still making shadows and blends from base shapes

    @acorn - oh I like that

    is forcing Xara into a design corner
    that is entirely possible, but if so then they aught to come clean and admit they are done with the flexible approach and have nailed their colours to the mast of 'designing by numbers'

    Sorry if someone already showed this or if I'm off base here, but I didn't have the patience to read the whole thread....

    I feel like I'm missing something... about the skewing/distorting images thing... if I'm right, yes you can.

    Oh... and for text... I use the 'text' aspect ratio tool. I know it's faster/easier just to pull/push a handle, but with the aspect ratio tool you could do individual letters and words which you could not do just with the handles. And you can be exact/precise.

    Here is an example of an out of bounds effect that uses two copies of the same image one cut out and the back one squashed to create the illusion of the cat sticking its head right out of the photo.

    Edit: this is a very quick rough example and I am aware that Mr.Kitty is missing his whiskers on one side.
