    Yes it is searchable.
    It is downloadable from http://dl03.magix.net/manual_designerprox16_en.pdf for version 16.3.

    MagiXara stupidly put this as a link into Help > PDF Manual so everytime you want to read sometime, MagiXara expects you to download it all over!?! earlier versions unpacked it into C:\Program Files\Xara\Xara Designer Pro X\16\HelpAndSupport\ENG\ and linked to the local file!
    I raised this as a Dear Xara but, like most other things, no reply.

    I'm on XDP 15.1 and in its Program Files folder there's only xarax.chm, so thanks for that link (I changed "manual_designerprox16_en.pdf" into "manual_designerprox15_en.pdf" for the download). So much easier to navigate than the standard Help file.

    Yes, there is also a http://dl03.magix.net/manual_webdesigner15_en.pdf & http://dl03.magix.net/manual_webdesigner16_en.pdf but why would MagiXara tell you?

    i have not pecked around for any German versions.

This is not the behaviour I expected and when I preview the page only one frame is visible and the GIF is not animating.
    It seems straightforward from Xara Help to import the GIF and it should just work... What am I doing wrong??

    I agree with handrawn here, I have done this many tunes but first I open a new animation then import the animation and it always works.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.
