    Gary, you should be able to re-open a thread ???

    EDIT: and like magic it was. Thanks Gary.

    Meanwhile, the problem with using linear fills (unless it done via css) is that the text becomes an image and as such can't be 'read' by Search Engines. Here's a workaround:


    Intel i7 - 4790K Quad Core + 16GB Ram + 232 GB SSD + 250 GB SSD portable drive

    Info Re: Trouble with two-color fill-part two

    @gary - you can retain fine control with the Profile if you use two shapes with linear fill and make the uppermost a flat overlay transparency.
    @Egg - I have include a CSS3 Text Gradient example here:

    Xara - 2-colour fill.xar
    Such an effect still needs the -webkit- prefix and so won't perform in IE.

    The advantages of the CSS3 approach are: no images (technically, one is created in the browser), text is text (scale the Preview to 500% and see how crisp it still is & smaller downloads (faster).
    The main additional benefit is the gradient can be animated.

    Acorn - My currently active Xara software: occasionally serviced XDPX, purposely unserviced XDPX12 & XDPX11 (32/64-bit), unserviced XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7 and lots of 'permanently-owned' licences back through time (to CC's Artworks)
