    Dear Xara...

    Any design file with a Page Background is still forced into having Website > Other Include webP images ticked regardless of its state on saving or closin the XDA.

    Open Graph sounds like a really good add. If you designate an image Open Graph (new tab in the Web Properties menu) it will appear if you add a link to your website in Facebook or other social media.

    Except... I added this Open Graph image to my website and checked to make sure it is in my files. It is. But when I added a link to gwpriester.com on Facebook it does not appear. Am I missing something?

    Question Re: Thread: Xara Designer Pro+ Update 21.4.0.62528

    Dear Xara...

    The Open Graph addition looks interesting.

    A few questions.

    <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image" />
    <meta property="og:type" content="website" />
    <meta property="og:title" content="Acorn" />
    <meta property="og:description" content="Wizzard" />
    <meta property="og:image" content="index_htm_files/opengraph.png" />
    <meta property="og:image:type" content="image/png" />
    <meta property="og:image:width" content="1200" />
    <meta property="og:image:height" content="631" />


    • Why place the Open Graph Group in my MouseOff Layer as a hidden collection? It seems to still work in a hidden layer I created and labelled 'og'.
    • Can I bypass the Open Graph dialog and simply create or import a suitable image, text block and background and directly use the Names of OpenGraph, OpenGraphDescription: blah blah, OpenGraphTitle: Earl of Dumbarton? Relabelling OpenGraph to XOpenGraph seems to prevent the og export. Also Image > Group Images set off, kills the export.
    • I note the og height is not exporting as 630px.
    • What define "twitter:card"?
    • Does or can an og Group use all the Theme colours in a themecolorscheme.xar file?
    • What is the character count limit for the OpenGraphDescription? You suggest 160 characters but there does not seem to be a limiter.
    • Ditto OpenGraphTitle?
    • If I clone the og Group, I get an opengraph.jpg file for the lower version. The most forward one gets "adopted". Neither jpg or png appear in ../index_htm_files/xr_files.txt.
    • Does og accept WebP?

    As for this update and the previous one(s) I had to resort to the online download(a fresh install) because the updater starts>crashes>second run>gives the message "you don't have enough permissions to run from this location"
    I have administrator rights and have run the program as administrator(right click).

    it may be securtiy software on your computer blocking the update - xara updates are rather pervasive

    Sorry this accidentally was left in from an update from a development build, we'll be patching it shortly to remove it.

    Thanks

    Rob - Can you test gwpriester.com at your end and see if you see the graphic I posted in my previous post? I tried the link in Facebook and the attached is all I see. This does not work on Twitter either.
