    Default Two Questions - Interactive Slider & Default Program

    I downloaded Photo & Graphic Designer 18 and have a couple of questions:

    How can I get version 18 to launch when I open Xara files that were created in version 17?

    When I enter text, I can change the size by inserting the actual size but the interactive size slider is greyed out and I cannot use it. How can I fix this?

    Thanks for your help!

    The first is an MS Windows action - on a XAR file, right-click > Open with > Choose another app > Pick your v18 executable. Plenty of Windows guidance on-line.

    The second is open in the Text too, highlight some text, use the slider.
    The slider should be active so I suggest you restart the application by right-clicking and picking Run as administrator.

    Thanks, Acorn!

    I did this (on a XAR file, right-click > Open with > Choose another app > Pick your v18 executable) and clicked the box to use this application in the future. Thanks!

    After I fixed which version opens, the text size slider worked.

    Thanks for your help!
