    Bug New Selectors - Fail

    Dear Xara Cloud+/Pro+...

    When I create a Rectangle, a Text Object or a Line (i.e., most Xara Shapes), if I then go onto Fill or Transparency, I have no idea on the design page which Object is selected. You have destroyed any visual clue.

    It is worse than that, it affects Groups too.

    It actually works well for the Shadow and 3D Tools as you can apply these effects to any visible object.

    A bit of a mess, would you not agree? Another to add to the Hall of Fame (in the dark corner).

    Also, the new selector overlaps the "Object edit handles" (toggle on the selector toolbar).
    Although I can see the "Object edit handles", I couldn't use/manipulate them anymore.
