    Default June 2018: Online Content Catalog Update

    Hard on the heels of our recent product updates, we’ve just added a large selection of new templates to Designer Pro and Photo & Graphic Designer. If you have a current Update Service you’ll see them already in your Online Content Catalog.

    In particular we’ve added some modern new web themes, which you’ll find in Web Designer Premium and Designer Pro under Single Page Websites and Business Themes. Plus there are new flyers and presentations in Designer Pro, and social media graphics, some new table designs and lots of interesting new Text Panels.

    You can find more details in the current Release Notes @ http://releasenotes.xara.hosting/designer-pro/ and http://releasenotes.xara.hosting/pho...phic-designer/

    I've seen various references in various threads to downloading the Online Content Catalogue to a hard drive for use offline. Is this possible, and if so how is it done?

    https://help.xara.com/article/185-ho...gner-templates but reread the TG Posts as these are more accurate.

    I was thinking more of clipart than templates!

    There is clipart in Image Resources > Photo Clipart.

    For anything more meaningful, use Pixabay directly, or similar.

    I would like to be able to do that also! The Clipart, not just templates.

    Also,
    When you insert arrows from the content catalog, you don't get the option to attach text to line function. That would be nice to have, even though you can create your own work-around.

    Ron, the Image Resource > Photo Clipart is downloaded locally when you right click on Image Resources folder. You can collect all your acquired clipart, form any source, and store in a local folder. You then use the Disc designs button in the Local design gallery to advise the Xara application where to look.

    Adding text to a Smart Arrow has been requested in Dear Xara: https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthr...xt-on-an-Arrow.
    Perhaps if you add a comment there, Xara might notice.

    OK, Thanks Acorn.

    What am I supposed to see after right clicking and choosing "download all"? The only change or activity I can see is a "Stop Download" button, but I don't see anything happening. It's been running a looonnnngggg time without any kind of notification showing progress or that it's finished. If it is downloading, I can't tell where it's downloading to!

    Is there a bit more to downloading these things than what you stated above?

    There's no clear indication that downloading is taking place, Ron. Indeed somewhat annoying. You just have to wait. Especially the websites take a long time to download, certainly if your internet connection is not very fast. The download location is: C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Xara\XtremePro\16\Cach e\designs\eng.

    Thank you, Boy. That is VERY helpful!
