    Thank you gwpriester for you interesting suggestion. And thank you handrawn for
    the bad news
    Interestingly, if you review the Affinity Photo forum(s) you'll find that
    "pixel" selection is a problem with several plugins there too. Just like Xara,
    some plugins work with AP, some don't and there are issue(s) with the ones that
    do work. I did get AP for what I could do with its native filters alone. Considering
    the cost of 64bit plugins AP is a bargin forget about plugins for it
    Overall, so very grateful I discovered Xara and this wonderful community of Xara
    enthusiasts and artists.

    Based on roaming the wonderful world of the web:
    To make a long story short my guess is that Xara is using an early version of the Bridge plugin
    (it is after all a 64bit plugin that allows 32bit plugins to work) that does not pass a selection
    to the plugin. A later version of the Bridge plugin does support a selection. Therefore the
    lack of a selection is not a limitation of Xara but of the Bridge. It's currently possible to
    buy the Bridge with selection capability for $25! So if you have PhotoShop, PaintShop Pro
    or Affinity Photo you can have 32bit/64bit plugin support.
    I haven't tried this combination(yet) But if anyone is interested in the Vizros plugin, on a native
    32bit app I had no problem with using a selection. It's also my guess that it's not possible to
    install this later version of the Bridge on Xara because that's a Bridge too far

    as I recall xara uses it's own bridge for 64/32 bit plugins [called possibly with a certain amount of geek humour: cambridge]
