    Default still not worth 69 GBP

    the upgrade.... I looked at the improvements re rotation, useful but not useful enough

    last 3 years I have bought quite a bit black friday, but this year not so much mostly books.. but one thing i did buy was Pinnacle studio 23 for 89.50

    in the past I have used camtasia, but my version is old and they wanted 72 to update - again not worth it - camtasia is really geared to the powerpoint end of the presentation market - pinnacle is a proper video editor, for example it has keyframing for animating effects and transitions - always nice when you get value for money

    Oh no! You must have missed my message about the Corel HumbleBundle - 25$ for Pinnacle Studio 23 Ultimate plus PaintShop Pro 2020U, PhotoMirage (full version), and Painter 2019. Today is the last day.

    ok I can go for that and return the other purchase under the distance selling regs, unless I find the HB has strings attached [which it did with xara 15.1] - thanks again for the heads up

    I have three distinct Shapes, with creation angles (-10.84, 90, 0). When I select them all, the selection will show Many as the Angle of rotation.
    If I select all of them and rotate with the selection rotation handles, the Shapes rotate around their common centre. The selection will show Many as the Angle of rotation.
    If I had chosen to restrict with Ctrl+Rotation by 45 degrees clockwise (i.e., -45), the reported angles are now (-55.84, 45, -45).

    Were I to have input -45 in the Angle of rotation box then all become (-45, -45, -45); each rotates about its own (selected) centre.
    Were I to have input #-45 in the Angle of rotation then I get (-55.84, 45, -45); the Shapes rotate around their common centre.
    Were I to have Grouped the Selection and input -45 in the Angle of rotation then Ungrouped then I get (-55.84, 45, -45); the Shapes rotate around their common centre.

    Simple really,

    many is what xara calls an attribute that has more than one variable with a selection - eg a selection of a group within which there are outlines with different values will show outline value as many

    that said, you have demonstrated well why I will carry on waiting, sow's pinna.... like so much these days in xara, it seems more of a manifesto pledge plus carrot, than any actual substance
