    Re: Corel Draw 2020

    I suppose the attraction (if there is such a thing) is that the asking price is for a program that one can keep and not have a monthly/yearly subscription after the purchase (at least I assume that...

    Re: Scribble May 2020

    I hope someone at MagiXara sees this piece, and seeks permission for usage on the packaging for the next iteration of the program.
    That is some serious playing around!
  3. Re: Help get rid of the Update Service popup

    Yes, it's bloody annoying, the only way I know is to use Windows Control Panel to stop MagiXara from calling home.

    Re: 1950s flats sign

    My disillusionment with Xara started when I first zoomed in on an extrusion and discovered 'jaggies' in the extruded parts of '3D' designs.

    Re: 1950s flats sign

    It's a crappy little photo to make anything other than an educated guess, but I would say it is King Tut Black by Canada Type. ($20.)

    Re: Corner Tool

    I'm afraid that there is probably nothing to jolt Xara from its torpor, unless a few thousand volts could do the trick.
    To all intents and purposes, Xara is dead, it has ceased to be...etc, etc.

    Re: Feeling disappointed and deceived

    The expression 'sharp practice' is probably known to all and I would say that the behaviour of MagixMarketing in this regard, fits like a glove.

    Astonishing! Such a thoughtful response from the good people at Affinity. Thanks, Paul for making things seem just a bit brighter.
    There are other companies, not far from here who could learn a...

    Hello, et al here - just saying that I agree wholeheartedly with the comments from Acorn and Handrawn above. We have been served with an absolute Dog's Breakfast as far as recent Magix-tainted...

    Re: XDPX Version Confusion with Open Files

    I do. ;) For my own sanity I generally fire up Xtreme 5 rather than the latest garbage. I find the user interface rather quaint and comforting.

    Xara 3D

    I have long suspected (known) that Xara's 3D Tool and its partner in crime the Bevel Tool are not what they purport to be.
    That is, when all is said and done, the end result seems to be a hybrid...

  24. Re: Xara Web Designer Premium 365 - Is it worth renewing??

    @ Paul - Thanks for that. A few months ago I actually investigated the idea of buying an iPad for the purpose of using Procreate, and decided against it at the time because of the lack of vector...
  25. Re: Xara Web Designer Premium 365 - Is it worth renewing??

    Probably nobody here is against Xara, but we have in our own way all decided that the program has reached the end of the road as far as the vector side of things goes.
