We’ve just released an Update Service update to Xara Designer Pro X. New features include new heading & para styles (backgrounds and borders), support for tab leaders, a first release of InDesign import (this is BETA and your feedback will be *very* welcome, it will help us prioritize our ongoing development of this new format), as well as updates to all the other major import/export formats, and some web related changes that should help with SEO.

You can find a summary of these and other new features & content on our website @ https://www.xara.com/designer-pro/whats-new/ and full details on all the v17 updates in the Release Notes @ http://releasenotes.xara.hosting/designer-pro-x17/. Don’t read too much into the version number change, this is driven by retail channel considerations, not necessarily a reflection on the substance of the update.

Important: If you have an active Update Service there will be no charge for the update but you will still need to re-download Designer Pro from https://www.xara.com/designer-pro/download/ - there will be no auto-update.

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). You can find info on those previous updates at https://www.xara.com/designer-pro/whats-new/older/. You can install the v17 trial alongside your current version.

And as always you can find separate info on what’s new in Xara Cloud @ https://docs.xara.com/latest-updates.

We hope you enjoy the new features.
