    Couldn't agree more. For newbies many widgets do not appear to work in this dated browser, however viewing in a modern browser via the browser icons work fine. Ditto re the preferred browser

    Could you ask the devs to add drop-downs for (type:symbol, htmlblocktext, filename="", htmlclass="", charset="", UsesJQuery, NoPageClipping, <motw>, <html>, NoAutoHighlight, NoHighSlide) to the Names dialog? See https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthr...anced-features....
    I will add this to the suggestions list.

The other one is when the fault warning comes up when launching the rendering in the browser. Remove it completely, it already shows up in the info in multiple places. Yes for pdf export I get it but for web pages it is just another stumbling block.
    This is already on my suggestions. I suspect that removing IE completely is more of a bigger job than it sounds, so for a short term solution I have opted to propose a checkbox in the Web Properties options dialog to preview within the default local browser instead. This means when previewing the web page or website, instead of opening the local preview it will open your local default browser.

    edit: Local dialogs would still be rendered with IE such as the web export options and Content Catalogue, but the solution above would be far easier and quicker to implement. It's not perfect I know but suitable for the limited resources and timescale we have.

    Thanks

    Rob, thank you for getting back on my suggestion.

    I do like the possibility to bypass IE - every little helps.

    This may be the truth Rob but one that requires doing desperately. New users can't be expected to understand that their preview is in an outdated browser & is not displaying their site as it would in a modern browser.

    .... so for a short term solution I have opted to propose a checkbox in the Web Properties options dialog to preview within the default local browser instead
    Yes please!

    Ok correct me if I am wrong. When uploading a website, if I have 10 pages and the one that I have made changes to is a simple page but the others are larger and more complex, why does it take just as long calculating the simple page? If i am just wanting to upload that one simple page to the servers, why the program goes through calculating all the other 9 pages? Does it not make sense to have the upload just to that one page feature? Just like how we preview current web page option.

    Xara regenerates all the NavBars graphics as well so all pages need reviewing.

    Acorn it would save a lot of time if there was a function to finalize the site so it would only then review all pages/navbars. Right now I have to wait minutes for this one long page to render to be uploaded.

    HI,

    A drag and drop user symbol gallery would be very productive.

    Thanks
