Xara :: An Offset Tool?

Oct 4, 2012

I'm using Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 6 and I'm having fun with it. But there's one functionality I can't seem to find that I really need. I'm a CAD operator (and have that mentality), and I really want my AutoCAD Offset tool. It allows you to copy a line or shape a certain distance away. More importantly, if you "offset" a shape inside or outside it's boundary, it automatically makes the new shape equidistant from all the borders.

Anyway to do it in Xara P&GD6?

Xara :: Selector Tool Becomes Page-size Change Tool

Aug 6, 2011

In Xara Designer Pro 7, when I have selector tool active and want to drag over a number of elements to select them the selector tool will change the size of the canvas (page). Is that not a bug? I used this way of selecting elements often, and it is not good for me with this new behaviour.

Is it a bug or is it a new setting which I then need to change?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Station-offset Label Style That Will Drop Trailing Zeros In Offset?

May 14, 2012

I am trying to create a station-offset label style that will drop the trailing zeros in the offset section - e.g. 15' instead of 15.00', but if the offset is not at a whole number, e.g. 15.01, etc.  it will display the entire offset.

I created two expressions:  IF(OFFSET-TRUNC(OFFSET)=0,.1/12,.00000001/12)

and this one:  IF(OFFSET-TRUNC(OFFSET)!=0,.1/12,.00000001/12)

I then created two offset components, one called truncated, and one called full, and assigned the heights to match the expressions. 

I have attached the file, the style is ACHD-Sta Off-Rt [copy]

C3D 2011, Win x64

Maya Animation :: Audio Offset Will Not Scrub At Offset Frame

Apr 9, 2013

I am using MAYA 2012 on Windows 7. When I import audio (.WAV) it works fine, but if I offset it to a later frame the waveform moves to the right frame but when scrubbing the audio stays at 0. Making if very difficult to lip-sync. I have tried re-caching, playing the scene all the way through and all other options I have seen online.

Xara :: Clone Tool In XD7

Jun 26, 2011

In Xara P+Designer 6 I can select an area to clone, then edit that selection with the Selector Tool.

I don't seem to manage that in XD 7 doing the identical thing, well, attempting to. Am I not doing something that I should be doing, for it to do the same as in Xara D6?

I can edit with the Shape Editor tool, but not rotate with the Selector Tool.

Xara :: How To Use Mold Tool

Nov 25, 2012

I don't know how to use efficiently the mold tool ( not a lot of tutorials about it ) .

Maybe it's not possible in Xara but here is an example from an artist's work where the text ( and picture ) fits very well on the page :

I'd like to use the same effect ( or a little better than I usually do ) on some personal works but :

Could be better ... I'm sure I don't know to use well mold tool, though ...

Xara :: How Useful Mask Tool Is

Oct 6, 2011

how useful the mask tool is! I've been exploring it. It's perfect for working on things like erasing edges of lines, splitting objects, you name it! It's so much better than the older method of having to make objects on top of an object or whatever..

Xara :: Tool To Adjust Contrast Of Group?

Dec 30, 2012

Is there a tool to correct the colors of shapes in a group in Designer Pro x?

I mean something that can change contrast, brightness and saturation of all colors in the group at once.

For now I use the bitmap filter "Enhance" but sadly the outlines become jaggy by this.

Xara :: Crop And Straighten With The Fill Tool?

Dec 19, 2012

You can easily fix crooked photos, zoom and crop with the fill tool.

The first step is to make sure you have the rulers enabled (window>bars>rulers) then click and drag a horizontal guideline from the ruler.

Select your photo and select the fill tool, you will see that your photo is actually a vector shape with a bitmap fill. Click and drag the outer fill handles to enlarge (zoom) the bitmap within the shape and rotate as needed to straighten the image. Move the cursor over the line of the fil handles until it changes to a hand then click and drag the photo around to adjust it's position within the shape.

Xara :: Color Select / Erase Tool

May 18, 2012

Just downloaded/purchased DesignerPro X and do not understand how to use this tool. I followed the instructions in the help file (as well as an old man can!) and cannot get it to work. For instance, I cannot get the color tolerance/fade controls to move off of 20/25% respectively. If you specify which photo you are using in the Design gallery, I will follow along.

Xara :: Using Color Select / Erase Tool

Aug 8, 2012

I am trying to change the hue of the sky in a photo. Following the instructions in the Help file, I first used the Color Select/Erase Tool to click on the sky in several areas to erase it. The instructions then say "Now select the Make Mask button on the Infobar." My problem is that I don't see a Make Mask button. I see a Make soft mask button and an Edit Input Mask button. Since the instructions go on to talk about these other two buttons, it seems clear that they are not the Make Mask button. So where is that button?

I might add that I am also looking for a way to make just one part of a graphic transparent. Would this Color Select/Erase Tool be appropriate for doing that?

Xara :: Live Effects Tool Missing In Designer 9

Aug 31, 2013

I finally downloaded Designer Pro 9 and installed the 64-bit version and, to my horror, realized it does not support Photoshop plugins. So I uninstalled the 64-bit version and installed the 32-bit version.

But now I find that the live-effects tool seems to be missing from the 32-bit version too!

I had thought the 64-bit version might be a bit more stable, but the old one was pretty stable. So now I'm wondering if I should plunk down money for the new version.

I'm pretty happy with the previous version, which oddly enough is called Xara Designer Pro X (go figure). So I'm going to ask for a possibly politically incorrect and certainly unvarnished opinion: How much of an improvement is the new version over the old?

I use it mostly for making graphics for websites or for making posters, leaflets, and such. I do not use it for website design.

Xara :: Rectangle Tool Includes Linear Fill?

Jul 16, 2013

I`m still using Xara X1... and am having two issues with the rectangular tool.

First, the rectangle draws on an angle, almost more like a diamond. I would like it to draw parallel to a horizon.

Second, the rectangle draw includes a linear fill. I would like to lose that parameter so that the rectangle can be a simple solid color that I can choose for myself.
