    Default Web Designer versus Xtreme Pro

    Apologies if this question has already been asked, but does anybody know if the new techniques for web creation in Designer will be included in a later version of Xtreme? I only ask this as being a lowly self employed force of one I don't want to buy another software package only to find I could upgrade my present software with the same abilities.
    On the other hand if they are going to diverge I would like to take advantage of the special pricing offer!

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Dahzee,

    The answer to that question must be yes, somebody does know. Of course that somebody is collectively known as 'Xara'..

    If I were a betting man though, I'd say we'll see some surprises when Xtreme 5 is released..

    Also, now that Xara has released Web Designer, I would think that the focus for Xtreme 5 will be away from website creation.

    I hope that any new and future web page design functions will be kept to the Web Designer program. Then they can focus the web design stuff into that program for the people that want it and the Xtreme development can focus more on drawing, painting, illustration tools, which I think that more Xtreme users would like to see. Just my two cents worth.

    I'm with you, Bruce.

    We need some long awaited new vector drawing tools within Xara Xtreme. Other vector drawing packages were much more innovative within the last three years.

    Seconded.

    I wish Xara would listen to us users and stop making toys which are not very useful to the professional graphics community at large and get some decent developers working on their core big money product.

    But as I said before I don't think there's anyone there who knows how the core engine of Xtreme actually works so they can't create new tools.

    If there's now vector tools in XX5 I'll eat my hat in the same vain as Werner Herzog Eating his shoe and post it on You Tube.

    Much as I like the new Web Designer package, I hope that they don't duplicate these abilities in Xtreme 5. To me it makes more sense for them to work together, but keep their various abilities separate.
