    When did you become so negative, Acorn?! You've always been a helpful member of this community, but recently you seem very down on Xara.

    Gary, ever since Xara foisted the Update Service on us, since my genuine reporting is the Dear Xara Forum was dismissed as too beta testery, since most of my reporting is ignored, since another two services I performed for Xara were equally passed over, since Xara invented SmartShapes without proper integration, since Xara fails to correct defects.

    I don't know, perhaps it's a phase I'm going through.

    A bit of 10CC there Acorn. I know you feel you're banging you head against a brick wall (and you are) at least the members here appreciate your dogged efforts

    acorn is one of the most helpful guys here

    but as far as xara goes, respect is earned; but it can also be lost;

    sadly xara has lost my respect, even though the program still has some uses for me, and I understand the way the company goes

    they milk the OCC that gives so little at a cost of, if you are not careful, being locked in

    they release updates with bugs that should never have got through beta

    they are elsewhere, their heads are in the cloud [

    I recall a Doctor Who story-line where he was locked in a time loop of many "thousands" of years to fight through to a super-hard crystal wall that he struck each loop to finally break past... ...Heaven Sent (as bad as the original Groundhog Day but where DH has not prior memories).

    Yes, that about sums up our current predicament Acorn.

    I think this was a deliberate change. You can disable in the registry
    Really?! Now what would possess them to do this (if true) without some kind of notification/warning?

    Was it just to annoy me for a week and ? And to have me work in 17, and export in 16? Was this an April Fool's thing?

    Because if so, they very much succeeded with the annoyance. Man!.... How dumb can it get?

    An if it wasn't a "deliberate change", never-mind...

    I really appreciate the help you guys give us through this forum, and am sorry that you are dissatisfied with Xara at the moment. I agree that things aren't perfect, but Xara is currently the only product of its kind on the market. Everyone else -- Adobe Muse, Serif WebPlus -- has withdrawn. So please don't be too negative: if Xara withdraws from this market too, we'll be even worse off than if we have to work around a few bugs.
