I just upgraded to X6 (32bit on vista). I use the powerclip feature a lot and have noticed that when I open a graphic I put together in a previous version (usually X5), if I have an object that has a powerclip and I extract the contents and delete them just to leave the original shape (that was the container). That shape that's left has an 'X' across it that I can't get rid of? I can even see it in the wireframe view. I tried the virtual segment delete tool to try to eliminate the lines but it didn't seem to do anything. I was just wondering if anyone else had run in to this or might know how to correct it (or if I'm totally missing something new?). :)
Thanks in advance for your help.
It is as designed as far as I know. However, you can always turn that off and convert a PowerClip ready frame to normal object. There are two ways to do that.
1) Right click on the object, then select Frame Type - None
2) in Layout menu, enable Layout Toolbar. Over there the third button is to remove frame (No Frame)
Thanks for the quick reply and help. That was it.
Aah, I see. Once the original vector shape has the 'X' on it and is set up as a "powerclip frame", I see how you can just drag and drop on to that shape and whatever you drop on it powerclips in to that shape. I didn't catch that as one of the new features.
Thanks again for your help!
Thank you!. Did not know either.
Hello, You just need to go to Tools: Options: Workspace: (under it) PowerClip Frame: Unclick (remove lines in empty powerclip)after (OK) Save Settings as Default.
