  1. Hi rcf, Thanks for the detailed reply - it's very helpful. I now have a better grasp of the program's capabilities. As you point out, the built-in symbol generation is not particularly useful, and I am happy to generate the media content elsewhere - in my case Affinity Designer. That actually makes more sense, as most of my artwork starts in 'Affinity world'. However, it still seems odd that while the inbuilt drawing scheme works in a vector form, the program cannot actually import vector images (such as .svg). I'm looking forward to incorporating Express Animate into my workflow. Thanks once again, Alan
  2. I have just purchased Express Animate Master edition with the intention of using this package for simple block diagram animation, as a step up on PowerPoint. I was surprised that there seem to be no preset shapes other than rectangles and ellipses. Most diagrams require regular triangles/polygons and rounded rectangles. I can construct these, of course, but am hampered by the fact that although the overall object handles snap to grid, I cannot get individual nodes to snap. And there seem to be no tools to align objects/nodes with each other, or modifiers to constrain node moves in x or y directions while dragging with the cursor. I have not found answers to these points in the help or the video tutorials. It looks like I will have to create other basic shapes as bitmaps in another package and import them. Can I import vector (e.g. SVG) images? Sorry for the noob questions, but maybe someone could tell me if I'm missing something, and if not, suggest workarounds. Cheers, Alan
