Dear Xara...

The NEW Cylinder has all of two controls to elongate and widen.
When you try this, it look dead and wrong.

I know I have XDPX but i will stick with Blends.
As your rendering engine will allow blends to be edited but not created, you could have delivered this Cylinder as far back as ArtWorks!

You cannot change depth.
You cannot change shading.
You cannot bend or skew.
