The areas which have been improved most are related to the text box and text line object. The text styles can be applied directly from the ribbon, by choosing in a gallery of available styles. The same is true for the fonts.
If you need to define your own styles, simply click on the styles tab, then select either the paragraph or the character style sub-tab and copy/modify or create your styles.
I've also added support for WMF/EMF (Windows Metafiles) import. Selecting such an image when drawing an image object will work; internally, the image is converted to a bitmap with the WMF/EMF specified DPI resolution. This can lead to jaggy images when printing.
As always, please let me know if something does not work properly for you. Thanks!
