Dear Xara...

I am concerned that you are cherry-picking Threads and ignoring others.

To update a product and declare it is in development is rum, inviting people to beta, going forward.

Have you read, which is in favour but with a twist?
Have you read, which is a disaster?

In summary, the new controls get in the way at low zoom, have little to indicate the modes available, get cut off, obscure other design objects, are inconsistent and just vanish.

Thank you for the Registry setting to revert.
