I guess you could say the same thing for XaraLX. It's a show stopper. 
And fast, fast... I know of no other FOSS program that does what it does 
and does it fast. <smile>


I've been working with it on both 32 and 64-bit machines. Just about has 
it all for a page layout program for slick magazines and the like. The 
Windows version is complete with a Picture Editor; the Linux version is 
almost there, 70% finished.
