    I have three monitor setup and the main screen is 4K and using Xara has gone from being a joy to eye-bleed

    as more and more of us upgrade our hardware its going to become a much bigger issue

    Good Luck to everyone trying to make this happen - SOON

    Meanwhile, I am off to the optician to get some stronger glasses and try again to edit the curve I can't find the handles for lol

    Perhaps increasing the size of the handles by using XaReg may help you as well. Download link is in the signature of Zaphodeist:

    Last I heard, there was no support for 4K monitors. Xara is considering adding this but as of now I have not seen any.

    Hello

    Does the latest version of Xara Designer Pro (version 16??) support 4K monitors yet?

    Background
    I have a 4K screen and I have more or less abandoned XDP due to the terrible interface when run on 4K screens combined with just how painfully slow it is to open. My slowest other application has always been Photoshop but XDP (v10) takes about 4 times longer to open than Photoshop!

    Thanks

    J

    Unfortunately not (yet?).

    Gosh. That really is awful. It's been well over 2 year since I started this thread. Surely anyone seriously interested in graphics will have a high res monitor by now.

    Xara management really do seem to have lost their way.

    It is a shame. It makes one wonder if their management actually use the program as a professional designer might.

    Not trying to be controversial, but in some ways I think Xara management are actually quite savvy. They appear to be squeezing every last drop of revenue out of their aging desktop program. By adding a few small peripheral bells and whistles every now and then, it keeps it looking (to the casual observer) refreshed and interesting.

    btw I also mentioned the scaling issue (again) back in March (point 12):

    I've had issues with several programs since upgrading to 4K monitors, so I thought I'd share the fix I use to sort them out.

    Right click on the application icon and select 'Properties'.

    Select the 'Compatibility' tab.

    Click the button 'Change high DPI settings'.

    Tick the box 'Use this setting to fix scaling problems for this program instead of the one in settings'.

    Tick the box 'Override high DPI scaling behaviour.'

    Select dropdown 'Scaling performed by: Application'

    When you next run the application the text should not be blurry.

    Yes, but the toolbar etc, will be absolutely tiny?
