    Default Xara Cloud Update - Release 65

    Release notes can be found here: https://docs.xara.com/en/articles/33...h-october-2019

    Local File Open
    Another long requested feature we now support! You can now directly open a file from your local computer instead of being forced to upload it to your cloud drive

    To do so, simply go to the File Picker > Your Files and in the left hand panel, click on 'Your Computer'. This will open a dialog from where you can now select your file. We support:


    After opening, your file will be converted to a .xar project file so it can be edited, but don't worry, you can export the file again to the originally saved format or even to another format (such as docx to pdf).

    Direct Image Open
    Similar to the above, we now include the option to directly open images and graphics from either your connected cloud drive or from your PC.

    After opening the image, Xara will automatically generate named colors from your image to also use! We support the following image file formats:
    .jpg / jpeg
    .tif / .tiff

    List Styles
    We now support list styles! This allows you to apply and save a style to a list and the list sub levels for use throughout your document.

    Default Re: Xara Cloud Update - Release 65

    Thank you Rob, I found the Open Local File option earlier today. I think this and local images will be quite interesting.

    I have already linked directly to my downloaded local cache quite successfully.

    Thumbs down Re: Xara Cloud Update - Release 65

    Dear Xara...

    I have tried the editing of an existing PDF that is 4 pages and 42kB.
    Xara Cloud sings along with https://docs.xara.com/en/articles/23...y-project-file.
    It just happens that the PDF is secured, so wrong alert message.
    Also to offer the need to use an Xara Desktop application (XDA) to optimise images is a bit rich.

    On opening a larger, more complex, document with mathematical symbols, only the images presented.
    I had to make a change and then revert to finally view the document.
    Double line borders were inexplicably split into two or three segments and displaced.
    Equally, table rounds were fragmented and not equally for different rows.

    I loaded a German technical document; Xara Cloud declared it language to be UK English.

    I opened a third document with tables and images.
    All borders became detached straight line segments.
    Vertical lines were transformed into skinny shapes with rounding controls.
    Bookmarks were not maintained.

    I know the product is currently beta for PDF but for XaraXine 04 to claim "All in one application" is somewhat premature.
    Affinity Publisher was generally worse in rendering but its controls were well ahead; if failed on maths.

    My go-to application, and for a long time still, is PDF-Xchange Editor.

    My Expectations

    • XDA > Share > Xara Cloud will offer to save the current document and when saved, open Xara Cloud with the current XDA document loaded up. The current web link is next to useless.
    • As Xara Cloud can handle local files, a MS Windows right-click Open With > Store app would be very useful.
