Right-click context menus

When you right-click any object in the Xara workspace, a drop-down context menu lists useful operations that are relevant to the object clicked on. For example, if you right-click a rectangle you've drawn previously, the drop-down menu allows you to perform actions only relevant to a rectangle.

If you right-click a photo, however, some of the menu options that appear apply only to photos, while others are similar to the actions you can perform on a rectangle. The object-specific operations are listed towards the top of the right-click menu's list, e.g., in the case of a rectangle the first three actions above apply only to rectangles.

You can also right click both the page and pasteboard to see a menu of page and pasteboard background-related operations you can apply.

If you select more than one object and right-click, the menu lists actions specific to multiple objects, such as group, align and combine, as well as the common operations such as cut, copy and delete. Similarly if you right-click objects that you have previously grouped, actions specific to a group are displayed.

It's recommended that you right-click any object or multiple objects in the workspace to access the context menu specific to those objects. Once you've done this a few times you will know which actions you can quickly perform with right-click menus.
