    Default Can I get rid of the blue lines?

    When I select a photo, Xara puts blue-and-white dashed lines around it.
    Is there a way to get rid of the dashed lines, and just have the little corner and mid-line boxes showing, like Xara used to do?Click image for larger version.

    It's an 'improvement' that Xara has added and in my opinion it's a wate of time. I believe there was a registery hack but whether that still works I don't know.

    What happens if you export the mage, does the blue line still show?

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

    The line you refer to is a bounding box and allows various manipulations of the image.

    Hi Jon, hope you are well.

    Yes, changing the registry setting does still work, reverting things back to the previous style selectors.

    I can’t find the original post from Xara who first told us how to do it, but the registry setting you need to find is ‘Options/Selector tool/ShowXCBounds’ and change the value from 1 to 0.

    Yes, good one Steve. I looked in that registry section but missed the ShowXCBoundsBlobs option.
