You did not mention the ability to create bevels though. For
realistic web buttons and fun objects to drop into other graphic art
work they DO come in handy!! It's a feature set that interests me
I did not consider bevels specifically because I never use them in Xara.
Perhaps they will fit into the same filters framework as the gaussian blur.
You can search the SVG spec, it may have some provisions as to bevels. SVG
compliance is a must for us, so if you suggest a feature, you'll get bonus
points for explaining how it could be represented in SVG.
Or how about bitmaps interacting with vectors, as in: a vector
slicing a bitmap??
Sure, that's to be implemented on a much closer timeframe than filters
(which I'm afraid are rather distant, unless an interested developer joins
us to work on them). What you refer to is bitmap fill (an arbitrary path
filled with bitmap), and it actually works already, but has no UI yet.
Are there any plans to make the dialogs stay "On Top" and
more task bar objects??
It's done for the Linux version, although the support varies depending on
the window manager you use. On Windows, this trick does not seem to work
properly, and we haven't had time yet to investigate the proper approach.
I would also like to
see an option to dock the dialogs or tab them into easch other so I
don't have keep invoking them and closing them out. If I don't then the
work area gets cluttered up!
Dialogs are unlikely to become dockable to the document window (if only
because you may have many document windows, while the dialogs are supposed
to be shared between them). But ultimately they may become dockable to each
other, a la Gimp.
