I agree, the tool should have been in the original artworks 1.
No fault of Martin who single handedly does a good job with limited

I currently use both Xara Designer Pro 7 and Serif Draw 5 and while 
Artworks GUI and tools are very old by comparison, I do find Artworks 
is my first choice for editing/tracing. It is still lacking in some 
basic requirements.

How does that list work ? does the few who ask often get what they 
want? or is there a small straw poll and the easiest implemented?

Would it not be fair if you buy the upgrade you then get a vote for 
next implementation . Then the features with the most votes gets 
implemented in the next release. providing of course it is reasonably

something new I would find useful, despite not having a use for any of 
the new tools in that release and have not used to this day
