    Behzad,

    Cost of Xara too high!
    Way too high. The other lower software versions are reasonable but Xara Designer Pro X is way, way overpriced.

    I truly think that they should have kept the web program out of designer pro, this way the price would have been less. Most want the pro for graphics and do not intend to make websites.

    Magix promote the following "The best products. At the best prices." I am therefore wary about Steam versions and eBay offers for out-of-date packages.

    Actually, this is a physical product with a manual and a disk. Many times these are stock clearance items.

    this ones a whole lot cheaper, as it happens... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Xara-Desi...AAAOSwr7tZgYrV

    I have the same concerns as acorn; I would not be 'sure' something like that would activate ok unless I knew the seller by experience

    Acorn - My currently active Xara software: occasionally serviced XDPX, purposely unserviced XDPX12 & XDPX11 (32/64-bit), unserviced XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7 and lots of 'permanently-owned' licences back through time (to CC's Artworks)

    sure, just saying you still have to be rather careful and look around even if price is all you care about

    one thing though - ver 11, which i have installed as well as 12, stands head and shoulders above the current mess that is ver 15.... [designer pro - subject of the OP]

    Hello,

    A deal is a deal. If the package is shrink-wrapped and marketed as new, you should be on the safe side. By paying using PayPal or a credit card, you will have basic coverage if you do not receive the goods or if the package has been tampered with. Most of these offers are quite legitimate, they are just stock clearance items.

    P.S. Xara is a good investment anyway you look at it, but who wants to pay top dollar or pounds.
