    Default copy and paste text from Xara 3D to lXara Designer Preo

    I have been trying to copy text that I have created in Xara 3D and paste it to Xara Designer Pro with no luck. What am I doing wrong?

    I seem to recall you cannot extract vector from xara3D, only save to PNG, GIF or WMF [I think] - been a long time since I used it

    pasting from one program to another uses the MS clipboard which may not be reading the xara3D info correctly [or at all], or it may be that the xara3D effect is not actually supported in designer which might use a different extrusion methodology

    I could be wrong...

    what I am pretty sure of though is that xara3D is/was a specific tool for the specific job of creating banners etc for websites; and as such it was intended to be at the end of the graphic design chain, so you may be out of luck; hopefully not

    if all else fails, can you create the text in designer using it's extrusion tool ?

    If you have Designer Pro, a more recent version, you can use the Extrude Tool to do most of the same things you can do in Xara 3D.

    You can copy & paste between Xara3D & Xara Designer. To do so, go Edit / SelectAll / Copy. Then Paste it into XD. However it will only be a transparent png.

    thanks egg - I was pretty sure you could not copy paste vector... but I've not used the program since the heady days of spinning football logos

    Sounds right to me.

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