    Default Updates have just finished

    Well my updates have come to an end.....so now what ..... is it worth paying for more ???
    The templates are so old and outdated I doubt anyone uses them .....so what are we getting for our
    payments.....I have been learning wordpress and the templates are alot more up to date and easy to use.
    Can anyone tell me the positives for paying for Xara .....when Wordpress is free.

    Mike, peruse https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthr...-Service-Cover.
    You might be inspired.

    I prefer xaratemplates.com. I have them all and just used one in anger with a new client - far superior.
    XBuilder is relatively cheap to keep your Xara Desktop application productive.

    WP is a steep learning curve. I use Pinegrow for it.

    Mike, you will lose only the things you are currently using with a red cross in the first column of https://www.xara.com/uk/designer-pro/compare/.

    XaraTemplates are designed for XWDP so don't expect them to have any bells and whistles of components used in XDPX. Equally, Xara's own templates are designed for the lower capabilities of the two applications as well.
