    Post Xara tutorial for combining shapes

    Rather than bury this inside my Dungeon tutorial thread, I've decided to post a mini 5 page PDF tutorial on expanded use of the Arrange > Combine Shapes functions in Xara Xtreme, as it provides lots of additional functionality to creating maps and map objects. (1.2 MB PDF)

    The combine shapes functions are: Add, Subtract, Intersect and Slice.

    Slicing can get secondary uses out of your existing top-down map objects.


    PS: both Yu Gnomi and Del should look at this one!

    Thank you for posting this, it is very illuminating. I plan to use these techniques for designing a sectional cave network for my current mapping project "Bert the Troll's cave."

    If all goes according to plan, different cave sections can be combined to make whole new cave layouts. I hope to use bevel to indicate elevation changes at places where the sections join.

    If it turns out as intended, I will probably enter it into this months mapping challenge.
