    Bug Image Slicing

    Dear Xara...

    I admit I have never used Image Slicing.

    Today, I found you cannot do this if the objects overlap.

    If you set an object's Web Properties > Image > Web image type to JPEG, this is ignored.
    It is all or nothing in the slicing Dialog where, at least, you can pick JPEG, PNG, BMP & GIF.
    Sadly, no SVG.

    Bug - if you chose an export path other than the initial offered one, a preview cannot be found.
    Failed to open web browser onto web address 'untitled.htm'. Please make sure the web address is correct and complete.

    is image slicing an operation that is actually relevant to vector (svg) ?

    my understanding is it is to speed up site loading - would that work if images overlap ?

    I just don't know. I can imagine a time when <TABLE> was use to define locations on a page and each <TD> had a sliced image.
    I cannot see anyone slicing images to save time. The badly-introduced "Separate images for group members" seems to fit the need far better.

    If this last fit the need then the spin-off would be exporting out separated SVGs, which makes for crisper presentations.
    At present, I work hard to ensure most of my output is a (rounded-corner) Box with Linear Gradients and horizontal text as these get rendered as vector.

    @Xara - rotated text is easily handled with transform: rotate(angle);

    I think multiple small images make a page look like it's loading faster because stuff is appearing sooner than waiting for a larger image to download. That's more about them days of dial-up clockwork internet.
