    Default Latest release of DPX

    Following an email I had inviting me to upgrade to the latest release of DesignerPro. I looked up my version and saw that I had the latest version (16.2.57326). One of the new features in the upgrade offer was fitting text to shape. I tried this by importing a shape and putting a text block inside of it and then with the shape selected , clicking on the text tool but no menu came up for fitting to shape.

    Thinking that I must still have the old version, I downloaded a free trial onto another computer but it was the identical version as what I had on the main pc.

    I could not find any differences between my version and the new one so at this point do not see any reason for upgrading. Am I missing something here?

    Not a great lover of this new feature Phill but I believe if you create a shape and then in the text tool click inside the shape it asks you do you want to Auto-fit inside / Fixed inside / On top. Are you seeing this?

    I think the shape has to first be selected then you click on the shape with the Text Tool and the options should appear.

    Thatís what I had tried. I am trying to evaluate whether it is worth upgrading and wanted to find out if the new version was any different to mine. So far I do not see any reason to upgrade.

    Here is a past Thread on the matter. I used Rob's Registry change and haven't missed it once.

    Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Xara\XtremePro x64\16\Options\TextTool\ClickToCreateTextInside: 1.

    That said, the change that removes the Text area group when all text is deleted later on is most welcome.

    So it should be working for you.

    If set to 0, it is disabled.

    Thanks for that link. My main purpose in trying to make it work was to assess the version I have currently with the annual upgrade in order to decide whether to upgrade. The text tool was what I started to explore and from what I have learned is something that I will probably never use. At this point I cannot see what I would gain by upgrading, other than the Vegas movie editing program which I could buy for less than the $99 upgrade deal. If I am wrong please tell me what extra features
    the upgrade would bring me.
    Thanks

    Phil, it's not for me to tell you what it would bring you, it is up to you to look at the What's New and assess if there are additional of changes that help you decide.
