    Lightbulb Well and Truly Skewed

    Dear Xara...

    Will you ever notice that we can SkewX (left to right) and SkewY (up and down) graphically but you only provide a single data Skew-angle of selection box in the Standard Toolbar?
    An update to the UI would be appreciated.



    If we Rotate or Skew a Text Area or Text Inside Shape, we immediately gain an image on Export.

    As demonstrated in the attached, CSS readily handles skew and rotation of text.
    You manage this already with Rectangles.

    Why the Font omission?

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    I left that out as I thought that was bound to confuse Xara: us asking for something recently introduced that is equally loved or hated.

    I can work with the remembered Rotation and the sticky Rotation Centre, but hey I'm always up for a challenge.

    Another orphaned or neglected feature. Once more for the record, if Xara just went feature by feature and made appropriate updates such as the one you have mentioned, it would be worth so much more to the user than all these other trick features. Maybe we should each take one feature or tool and make a list?
