    Default Just Released: An update to Xara Designer Pro X

    We’ve just released an update to Xara Designer Pro X. We’ve added support for some more advanced Open Type features and continued to improve tables, and we hope you’ll also find some great creative uses for some of the new SmartShapes and Layouts. You can find a summary of these and other new features on our website @ https://www.xara.com/designer-pro/whats-new/ and full details in the Release Notes @ http://releasenotes.xara.hosting/designer-pro-x16/

    If you have an active Update Service and you’re running v16.0 then you should shortly see 16.1 offered as an auto-update. If you’re still on v15 then you will need to re-download Designer Pro from http://www.xara.com/designer-pro/download/.

    If your Update Service has expired then you can renew your Update Service / upgrade in order to get this and other updates since your version (go to the Designer Pro page on magix.com and click Upgrade). Fyi in addition to the Open Type and table support mentioned above, in the last year we’ve also added text flow inside shapes (all 3 were top requests in the last TG poll), plus there have been some things that you didn’t request but we hope you’ll discover their great value - such as the ‘get color from photo’ feature, auto-fitting text and auto-resizing documents. To recap on what’s new, or if you think you’ve missed some of the releases, you can find a summary for v16 on the What’s New page mentioned above, or older updates @ https://www.xara.com/designer-pro/whats-new/older/. We’ve also got a demo of some of the 16.0 features at http://previews.xara.hosting/ColorPalette/

    And a quick note on Xara Cloud: We were proud to officially launch the product in 2018, release numerous updates (more than one product / content release a month), and grow the customer base. We have been pleasantly surprised about the use cases and overall usage of Xara Cloud by Xara Desktop customers. People are finding ways to be more productive, opportunities to work with their clients not possible before, and enjoying the combined flexibility of an offline/online solution. We don’t announce updates here but you can follow progress on https://docs.xara.com/latest-updates.

    For both desktop and cloud the Xara team has defined another ambitious product roadmap for 2019. If we deliver even half of it, then it is going to be a good year for both. As many of you know, Xara has always been a hidden gem, so we plan to be more aggressive with spreading the Xara message in the market. We look forward to your continued positive support.

    Only had a ½ hr. for a quick glance... a main interest of mine is tables... and all I have to say about that
    since the initial release of the table feature is WOW!!! Terrific fixes!!! Works like a charm!!! (so far)
    Thanks for the fixes and improvements... For me, this is 'one' of the major features I needed
    to use with Xara...

    Cliff

    oh, and at quick glance... the new 'label' & 'measurement' lines look great and... promising...

    Great to hear you like the table improvements Cliff, and we're continuing to work on them for future updates. We've had lots of good feedback on them here in TG, so thanks everyone for that.

    Yes, the new Smart Labeled Lines are quite, well, smart and we hope people will find them valuable. Edit the text in the lines and the lines retain their overall length, unless the text is a number in which case the line will actually adjust to that length. More on the lines in the Release Notes @ http://releasenotes.xara.hosting/des...Anchor:58egNpq

    Also loving the 'WORD' export... it's perfect!

    Here's a form I did for a company (their design) and here's the 'WORD' file... PERFECT!

    The table enhancements alone make this a must have update. They fixed pretty much every table issue I encountered in version 16. Today is a good day to be a Xara user.

    hey Xara guys,
    The Labeled Lines will safe so much time for me, thx a lot !!!

    i'm nearly crying for happiness.

    ***
    only a few things.

    if you stretch the Labeld Lines by an error with the normal tool, the
    distance is wrong, which may can be easily overseen.
    see 1



    there is nearly no magnetic snapping to other objects while adjusting the length.

    would be great to ha have rounded number in the units.
    i doing carpet design for nearly 25 years with Xara, normaly with scaling 1:20
    id dont need 200,35cm 200cm would be great.

    but again thumbs up for all !!!
    have to look for the rest of the news.

    and crasy, this is only from 16 >>> 16.1 !
    what will 17 look like!
    ;-)

    Hi rsrsrs... by "normal tool", I assume you mean the 'Selector Tool' (arrow)... if yes... then hold down the alt key... it will measure correctly AND... snap correctly.

    Yes there's a slight difference in snapping when selecting & stretching with a 'quickshape' tool... it's a bit more subtle...

    But... like you... I love this tool! And you could design the heck out of it... TOTAL CONTROL of all aspects of it...

    Definitely a great improvement for the tables, thanks!!

    But am I correct that there's no change for inserting elements in cells? For example, in Table 1, what's now the best way to add a checkmark in an empty cell and have this new checkmark maintain its place in the table when the latter is moved?
