    Let's hope your hunch is correct...

    Please show me wrong but I would like to have a web Preview without having to go to the main application.

    It seems a large oversight not to have this already.

Then we got an extremely limited 'table' feature which really isn't adequate for most needs. Then people on this list supplied workarounds involving placeholders and Google Docs which are nice (I use them myself) but way beyond what you could expect of most non-techie users. When I'd take people for a test drive, one of the first things they'd ask was 'Where's the button to insert a table?' (not 'Is there a way to insert a table?'). XWD says right at the start of its help files that the appearance of websites is important and that you should only have to use one programme. But if a small business just wants an easy-on-the-eye list of their services and charges... or an easily editable table of staff with their photos, phone numbers and areas of speciality.. or a nicely formatted list of conferences and dates, with the ability to add/delete lines...they have a problem. Many of these people don't need a full-blown CMS.
    I chatted with xara recently and understand there is some work towards a better table widget. No commitment on time but very pleased to hear there is work on it.

    Thanks onlye, this is great news. I do hope that they will liaise in depth about the feature set with people who actually use tables constantly. The current table widget seems like a well-intentioned gesture from developers who didn't really understand what table-users really need (including the usability factor, which is normally Xara's great strength in other areas).

    What I would like to is the ability to add and manage users for a document. For example I am hoping to use the OD for a project at work and if it proves well I could be asked to do more documents and while one dropbox account would be used for store access different employees may require different access to certain documents ie: lower level personnel might not need, or should have, access to certain documents.

    The Table of contents features that the desktop versions have.

    What I would really like to see in Online Designer is the option to remove it completely from Xara, instead of having to disconnect the internet to prevent it doing what it does.

    Bob, are you confusing the Online Designer from the On-line Content Catalogue? The former is disconnected from the Xara desktop application.

    Yep, more than likely Acorn. I'm not really in favour of any application that insists on an internet connection for ordinary usage, it is all intrusive, whichever it is, I'm not interested in anything from the Online Catalogue or the Online Designer, so whatever the nomenclature is, I don't want it! I sound like a Luddite, but I'm not, honestly.
