    Hi Acorn. When I saw your earlier post, I was intrigued. The possibility of adding your own CSS code to affect the attributes generated by Xara sounds very powerful.

    My programming skills are not bad, but my website designing skills are restricted to what I can do with Xara. Iíve figured out a few tricks and hacks to get it to do some things that arenít obvious, but whenever Iíve started investigating programming (HTML, CSS, etc.), I havenít gotten very far.

    In pursuit of your suggestion, I attempted using Placeholders and even inserting code directly into the html file, but I had no luck. I did a search and found an article on the Xara website advising that editing the CSS is of no value when using Web Designer because of the way the software is set up. You obviously have a different opinion. Do you happen to have a link that would explain how to go about adding code?

    Thanks

    There is a lot of power in using xara Placeholders. This link, https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthr...ing-calculator, is an example of how you can leverage others' efforts into useful constructs. Note the need for <script> <style> wrappers. If it is to show on the page, it goes in the Code body. If it is calculations and effects, usually Code Head. Xara Names equate to IDs. Name of htmlclass="fred" adds class Fred to object(s).

    There are a number of other Threads/Posts here: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=site%3Atal...eholder&ia=web that might assist you.

    Acorn - My currently active Xara software: XDPX (current, v15, v12 & 11 (64-bit)), unserviced XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7; lots of licences back through time (to CC's Artworks). If your Post identifies a Xara software fault, please raise it directly with Magix --> support2.magix.com.
