    You are wrong, Xara will now have a 12 and a 15 directory. I did nothing that download and install v15 and I then ran both together.

    - 1 milion photo and illustrations - I didn't count how many are available under v 12
    - Magic resize - could be useful on occasion
    - Smart shapes - already exist in the content catalogue
    - 24 new web templates - some are quite nice - btw the Music StudioX example shows multiple menus....
    - Panorama photo slider - which I was asking about - assuming the horizontal and vertical dimensions can be changed independently
    - Would love to know how this works:

    Are the above worth a $50 upgrade - IMHO, I don't think so.

    Some of the fixes I was hoping for:
    -Fixed the so called "smart photo grids" -pic order on pop-up is really a PITA) -see this post - https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthr...rt-Photo-Grids
    -Allow drop-down menus to use Google fonts - not just the limited "web safe" ones
    -All software to work on 4k screens
    -The ability to create text slides where the text remains text and is searchable
    Xara and MAGIX have seriously got it wrong for failing to describe how to get your FREE upgrade, if you are withing their 365 program cover.
    Do not pay anything and follow my Post, https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthr...238#post584238, above.

    Thanks. Good to know my batting average hasn't changed.

    You should find it in Components > Image Resources > Photo Slideshows & Galleries, called Xara Slideshow Widget.

    That's worrying, you should see the same products in your Service Center that you saw before. In my own account I can see products back to Webstyle 2. I recommend you send a ticket to Sales via xara.com/contact - if you have lost your product record I think Magix support need to take a look at that.

    Gary I think you're right, the new auto-fit feature will help with creating mobile variants. But I suggest you select 'Auto Fit All Objects' and check the 'width' option in the Auto Fit dialog before creating the variants.

    For social media it works really well if, for example, you want to adapt your Facebook post for a post on one or all of the other social media sites, or Cover to Cover, Profile to Profile etc.

    Thanks Kate - however, it is no longer available in the online gallery of WDP12 - so does this mean that I have to "upgrade" to v15 in order to use it even though it used to be available in v12???

    I agree, that would be a bad call on Xara's part if it is simply dropped. Until then, as you have access from v15 as you are still in cover with the 365 service, you could download it into your v15 Local Designs gallery and reference it as a Disc design link from v12 to the same location.
