    I'm having the same problem.
    No matter how many times I check the "Do not show again" checkbox, it comes up again.
    You would think that they would realize this annoying behavior makes it LESS likely that I will upgrade, not more.
    Have some respect, please.

    I've promised Gary that I won't be mean to you again, so I'll keep this brief. You are comparing Xara, a structured art program (vector) with a few bitmap editing features, to image editing applications (raster). They are two entirely separate classes of graphics software. This is amply illustrated by the software you chose to compare Xara to - both Adobe and Serif (Affinity) keep their raster and vector tools largely separate, partly so they can force you to pay twice for their products but probably also because it would be really hard to design something to do both like Xara can. If I sat here and typed out all the things Xara can do that Photoshop and Affinity Photo can't do, I'd be up half the night so I'll just give you one example - I can create something Xara and export it as a PDF file for printing, a PNG or TGA file for digital advertising and as a website, complete with all the interactivity you might want or need. All from the same .xar file without the need for any modification. That's Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash and Dreamweaver all replaced with a single, low-cost application that does it faster and more efficiently. It's absolutely freakin' awesome and I feel sorry for you if you are so caught up in the one or two features you'd like that aren't there that you can't see and appreciate that.

    Exclamation Re: Update Service period expired pop up

    Could I attempt to refocus this Thread?

    Update Service period expired pop up

    We were trying to advise Xara that forcing a pop-up on every load to tell the application user to upgrade is not constructive.

    Indeed. Let's please stay on topic. The complimentary assessment of Xara is much appreciated. However, it may better flow in the discussion in this thread: https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthr...signer-Updates.

    there is no need to feel sorry for me Bones

    xara provides you with an integrated workflow, but for me that is not the case most of the time; we do different things

    Yes the compimentary assessment is much appreciated and I will continue to use what I consider to be the best tools for my work, as no doubt you will too
