    Aberdare_web, welcome to TalkGraphics. The Content Installer is still accessible and downloadable through Help > Download Content Installer...

    The Content Installer (Pack) is not the same as the Online Content Catalogue objects that are now not accessible to you. Those that you used will still appear in the Local Designs gallery. A lot of background in https://duckduckgo.com/?q=site%3Atal...ics.com%2F+OCC.

    I am sorry you have had this shock. Many on TG see this to be a self-defeating approach for Xara to adopt. Despite railing against it, Xara has been intransigent: https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthr...ting-Explained.
    We need more to proactively log into TG and express their disquiet. Might #FreeTheOCC be a useful Thread to start and record Posts within?

    Thanks Acorn.... the software seemed to be playing up and the local designs gallery had vanished and wouldn't reappear! Managed to sort now and they are now back!

    I agree that the new way of the update service is a poor step. Much better as it was.... having used Xara for many years going back to one of the earliest versions its a shame it will probably mean I don't fork out for any new software now.

    Cheers for the welcome and reply

    You're definitely not alone on that!
