    Default Anybody have a quick tutorial on “live copies”

    I’m having a little trouble understanding the concept.
    - live copies are like repeating elements, but they can be moved
    - change one and they all change.

    That’s about where it ends for me. Many thanks,

    Info Re: Anybody have a quick tutorial on “live copies”

    Bill, they are not rocket science but they do have a few rules.

    The main trick is to understand the general concept of a Group.
    An action on the entire group should be seen as a local edit.
    If you open a group, then an edit inside is a global edit.
    A Ctrl+Select on a group object is a global edit.

    Typically, there is no distinction between global and local.
    In the case of Live Copies, change one's Transparency results in a local change.
    Click inside and you can apply another Transparency and this is applied globally so that the one shape can have two different transparencies at the same time.

    A colour change is a change of all shapes in the Live Copy so it affects all Live Copies.
    That is the main reason Xara introduced Unique Live Copies in XPro+v21.6.

    If you Stop Live Copy, the global Transparency disappears.

    I would read:

    Great resources. Thanks everyone. I’m going to do up a 3 page site and mess with it.

    Thank for the reminder/link. I wish XaraXhris was still around. What a smart resource. Been 6 years since any updates on his vids. I wonder what happened.
