    I hope no faster than the rest of us.

    By the way, I have already bought into Affinity as I do have eclectic tastes.

    Thanks Acorn, Would be great if they made it obvious that you can download all the content as the online gallery is a pain but then I don't use the programme regularly. I note that you say 'Xara does not offer the media for purchase' but hiding behind small print in the T's & C's is a disgusting way to treat clients. A quick search for widget pack 1 brings up http://www.xara.com/uk/products/widget-pack-1 which states is no longer FOR SALE so I maintain I purchased it!

    As Xara couldn't be bothered to answer my email and I needed to make a quick change to my website - I have paid them another 40 to be able to download the content. It was a pain to find out where it was all stored on my pc but I have now backed it up on my NAS drive as well so hopefully I'll be sorted for the future but I doubt I'll ever be using/updating their products again or recommending them.
