    Default Grouped objects with Text

    I have a question that I though some of our more experienced people would have the answer too.

    If I have a shape, like a box with a text column on it and these two objects are group together. When this group is upload by Xara does this group become a bitmap as far as Google or Bing is concerned? Is everything in the text column not indexed?

    Hi Ray--I believe the answer use to be Yes, a grouped object becomes an image.

    I don't know what capabilities are in your Xara application, but using a Soft Group use to export text as text...but my memory is hazy about this and I haven't really helped out with web stuff for years.

    So if I am follow you guys correctly, then either soft group the text with the object or just have the text separate from the object.

    Thanks

    Better soft-grouping Ray, so any repositioning repositions both objects at the same time.

    Grouping creates an image with the alt parameter holding the text as characters for screen readers.
    Soft-grouping keeps the text as a scalable vector (font).

    If you can avoid shadows and other artefacts then boxes, rotated and even rounded corners upload as vector shapes, keeping your site much the crisper.
