Creating PCX files

You can create PCX format bitmap files using a wide variety of options. Note that when exporting a bitmap, the current Xara LX Quality (see Changing the screen quality of documents) setting is used for the bitmap. For example if the Quality is set to a very low level the bitmap exported will be in outline only.
