File a RFE please.
Yeah, but not right now, it's too late, hope I'll remember tomorrow.
Sure I was talking about RFE and not a bug.

Which version of Corel? :)
Version 11... I don't think 12 is any better. The 0.39 Version of
Inkscape I have is quite unstable though... I'm hoping for something new
soon in Debian.
The main advantage is how transparencies are handled and that the
updating of the canvas work better.

What is baseline grid and how it's different from the grid we have on
Baseline grid is a grid to have the baseline of text adjusted to if you
have several lines. It's basically for paragraph text, but for flyers
with only a few paragraphs inkscape is better suited than scribus or
indesign. So when you have to textboxes (not yet available, I think, but
anyways) at different positions on the canvas the lines will be aligned
horizontally. This looks a lot better. In Corel it pissed me of because
I had to use guides or objects and move the textboxes up and down until
it fit quite well.
Is is clear, what I'm talking about? If not so, I'll try to find an example image
on the web somewhere.
