    Re: Making changes to Xara website templates

    I re-engineer Xara Templates to see how they tick.
    Few have sensible presentation: Guides, Text Areas, Styles, Theme Colours, interactive content, explanations, etc. XaraTemplates.com is a one-man...

    Re: XDPX Version Confusion with Open Files

    Affinity 1.8 delivery and content is simply what Xara is looking in the window at and marveling.

    Dear Xara...

    This has been a forever Bug.

    I believe that v16 introduced PPT Export as a beta, which will closely match the Xara Cloud one.

    Not necessarily. It might be a change in v16.3 that impacts backwards to v11 but it might affect future releases. I am pointing out that if you don't know what you have done differently, you cannot...

    No, it's just your version menu has fewer options. Unticking will stop the repeats.
