    Default JUST RELEASED: An Update to Xara Web Designer

    We’ve just released an update to Xara Web Designer. 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/web-designer/whats-new/older/ and full details in the Release Notes @ http://releasenotes.xara.hosting/web-designer-16/

    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 https://www.xara.com/uk/web-designer/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 Web Designer 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/web-designer/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.

    Kate Moir, Xara

    Great work Kate. I was checking the link below and comparing to see if the pdf from within xara help file has been updated and I believe it has not. Please let me know when all these new features will be added to the pdf documentation?

    Once you have renewed your Update Service, you would just need to download the latest version, 16.1, which you can do on magix.com or at https://www.xara.com/designer-pro/download/. You will be able to unlock it with your existing serial number.

    I do not know if this where I post but I just uploaded the new Xara update. The update was successfully installed but now when I click on "File/New from Content Catalog" a message states that "You need to be online to use this feature", I am online and in the middle of designing a website. I looked everywhere to see why only Xara will not connect to the internet and all my other programs do. Keep in mind this happened only after upgrading. Any suggestions. Thanks Duane

    Duane,

    Try starting the program as an administrator to see if this corrects. Only need to do it once. right click on the program icon to run as administrator.

    This might sound silly but have you tried restarting your PC? If that doesn't fix it we can run some diagnostic tools and see what is happening in the background.

    Thanks

    I found the problem. When Xara was updating I did not close out the website that was being worked on. Somehow the update affected that feature. I went to the backup file and opened a previous backup (I setup my backup feature to keep 10 backups) and the link works fine now. If anyone is reading this, the backup feature in Xara is very valuable. It has saved me many, many times, what a great feature. Everyone who creates websites should at least have the feature set for 5 backups. Anyway thank you for responding to my situation. Duane
