    Default bug stack order

    Dear Xara,

    since the latest pro+ release the back and front order is bugged.

    Click image for larger version.

    Selecting the eyeballs and the pupils and send them back with CTRL + B, keep them selected and bring them to front again with CTRL + F, the order isn't correct as you see in the attached image.

    bb,

    Fly, I can confirm this Bug.

    Create two shapes, one over the other. Add a third.
    Select the first two and Bring to Front and Put to Back repeatedly - the stack order alternates.

    Do direct the Thread link to Xara. Xara prefers a direct dialogue.

    Sadly, today's update has not fixed this Bug.

    One reason more to stick to v19...

    (others: the non-skinned UI works, no need for internet connection, and more ..)

    Michael, we have previously discussed the merits. or opposite, of a Subscription product but to damn v20 Perpetual as well for a small Bugis nugatory.

    @handrawn's observation is more relevant: will Xara fix the Bugs in v20 Perpetual in the same timeframe when it fixes them for the Plus products?
    If so, you will have all the existing capabilities of v19 and gain bug fixes, access to an off-line 'Content Catalogue' and actual Help & Support, direct from Xara with no Magix involvement.
    I doubt the light skin actually works in all circumstances; @handrawn has covered this before and when I tried the Button Palette was unusable for me.

    For this Bug, the workaround for those in need is Group, promote or demote in the stack and Ungroup.

    Merriam-Webster: It comes from the Latin adjective nugatorius, which can mean not only “trifling” or “frivolous” but also "futile.”
