    Default Why would you mention something that isn't relevant at all?

    Just went thru the comparison chart between Web Designer, Page & Layout Designer, Photo and Graphic Designer and Designer Pro... http://www.xara.com/us/designer-pro/compare/

    Why would you list something that all 4 products don't support?
    All 4 products don't support:
    1) Table Support
    2) Text flow within shapes
    3) Free hosting (500mb) - this one is the head-scratcher!

    Why would you list things this way?

    Just curious.

    This the the way Magix operate.
    Table Support is already advertised and is probably imminent. See http://www.xara.com/us/designer-pro/advanced/ "Table Support".
    Text Flow within Shapes is a Xara WAGI (What a good idea) where, I presume, there was a scraping of the barrel about what new feature could be included to demonstrate Xara has a new feature. See http://www.xara.com/us/designer-pro/advanced/ "Text flow within shapes".
    The last one is a doozie:
    Xara Designer Pro comes with a free website hosting offer from Xara Online with no time limit, which includes 500MB of storage!
    In addition Designer Pro includes a a free 12 month upgrade to Xara's 'Website M' hosting, which includes 2 GB of webspace, plus a free top level domain.

    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)

    Looks like you may have stumbled upon something here, Panchdara.

    Acorn: yeah, whilst I can concur.. but why would a company blatantly advertise something it ain't got? I'm still

    Gary: I was bored and wanted to see where my massive renewal $$$ were going.

    They say that if at first you don't understand something then it must be intuitively obvious... oh well.

    I think they refer to the Table widget that has been around for years now and can be found in the Local Designs gallery (if you downloaded the contents): Components/Print & Web Components/Other Components.

    Well, I have been using this for small or temporary projects for years and am pleased with it.
