    Default New Selection Outline?

    Seems a recent update has given me big chunky and what I would call "immature" outline to my selections.

    The problem is, it obscures viewing the actual edge of the object I'm moving, making precise alignment difficult. As I say, I feel it obscures the view with this new chunky blue and white rope.

    Any advice?

    Cheers,

    Chris

    I 2nd that. I hate it and ask Xara to make it thinner and a lighter color. This is very immature design.

    There are pluses and minuses. I agree the double border is clunky and obscures some edges I have to see in order to edit an object. But the smart handles are one of the pluses for me.

    I've only had pro+ a few days but I agreee with gary's 'pluses and minuses'

    in pro+ you can revert to the previous handles using a registry key see here [post #10]:

    I would prefer an option on the darkness. I use the light background and a lighter border would not help.

    it would help if we had control over the transparency/colour as has been mentioned - maybe this will come

    Gary Dear, smart handles are fine but what does it have to do with that ant line being so thick.

    I think XARA appreciates your suggestions on changes you would like as well as changes they have made to improve them. Not sure this is the link to do that https://www.xara.com/us/contact-support/ , Gary please post the correct link if it is incorrect.
