    Default Is latest Web Designer 'properly' responsive?

    I haven't been using Xara for a while now, having stuck to using Wordpress for my needs, but I now want to get back to HTML and so am looking at updating from v11 to the latest - 15 or X whatever the latest one is. However, I cannot see whether the new designer uses Viewport or whether it still uses variants, the blurb isn't really clear so I just want a definitive clarification of how Xara handles responsive websites before I pay for the upgrade.

    Current version is 16 and it still uses variants to allow for WYSIWYG. So, it's adaptive but not responsive.

    When you think about it, isn't it better to have variants that work with a specific size range and over which you have design control than one or two variants that arbitrarily adjust and restructure to fit each browser variation?

    Many thanks for the replies. I can see what you say, it's just that having just come from WP and looking at many sites around these days, I really want to stick to 'responsive' so I was interested in whether Xara was doing the same.

    Thanks anyway.
