    Default Are you happy with WDP15...

    ...or would you rather have stayed with WDP12?
    Reasons why or why not?

    Well, I didn't install XDP15 in the first place because almost nothing was added and I would have to customize all my control bars all over again. In addition, a lot of people here reported issues with this update.

    However, you can run both versions side by side, so there shouldn't be any big problems (as far as I know).

    Correct, both versions can be installed and run at the same time.

    There are some issues (being resolved) with stretching text and bitmaps, so I have been using v12.

    Best new feature is Auto Fit, which resizes the content of a page to fit another size http://releasenotes.xara.hosting/auto-fit/ I think there is a lot of potential for this new feature.

    I republished a 50-page site yesterday with V15 and to be honest it worked very well and subjectively a tad faster than V12.

    I have directed some of my V15 concerns into Dear Xara... Posts.

    I had some problems with PDF's in version 12, they seem to be fixed in 15.

    +1 on the faster - especially when loading the program. I have not found any issues yet, but I don't use much of the available feature set.

    No . . . . . no, no, no, no, no. When I jumped ship last year I should have stayed overboard, and kept my money in my pocket. I have had so many issues with WDP15, from mobile sites not displaying and from the jolly thing crashing all the time. One feature that I really miss from WDP12 is Position on Page. I use this all the time - literally - ALL the time. What has replaced that in WDP15? Anyway, I have returned to WDP12 and just have to accept I was too hasty to upgrade.

    Auto-fit to page give you all Position on page did but you have so many more options to consider.
    You need to read http://releasenotes.xara.hosting/auto-fit/.

    If only the % position X & Y options were dynamic to the viewport after publishing... ...ah well!
