    Have you run into a plugin that doesn't work with Xara? let everyone know about it in this thread tell us what the plugin was supposed to do and what happened when you tried to run it.

    My current Xara software: Designer Pro 365 12.6

    Question Re: Plugins that don't work!

    I'm having a different problem with Eye Candy 7. I'm using XDPX9 32 bit and the plugin seems to work just fine. My problem comes up when I try to close the editor window for any of the plugins. I get the error below. Any way around this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi, since I made the Xara Designer X9 update to v. 9.2.7.30974 i have no more problems with Eye Candy 7. The version I use is 7.0.0.1104 22809 x64 Release.

    I can't get Xara Designer Pro X 16.3.0.57723 DL x64 Oct 25 2019 to recognise StarFilter Pro 4. I am distraught!

    the32 bit version of Starfilter Pro 4 works my version 15.1 so I think it should work in 16 [but no guarantee]

    the 64bit version does not work

    that is probably because the 32 bit version is photoshop cs2 compatible which xara will recognise, and 64bit is photshop CC compatible which it may well not

    that means when you set up the plugin in options/effects and plugins make sure you point to the starfilter folder in Program Files [x86] and not Program Files
    EDIT - this assumes you have windows 10 - if you don't then it may well be different and you will need to let us know

    also make sure the box to enable host specific plugins is ticked as shown

    this plugin only works on bitmaps [photos] not vectors, so make sure you don't have any vector in your selection

    hope that helps

    if you get error messages post them up as in Frances original post above:
    tell us what the plugin was supposed to do and what happened when you tried to run it.

    if you have done all that then closing the program and running as administrator may help [ie rightclick shortcut and select the option - only need do this once]
