    Ok, should all and everyone who uses v17 be posting there for anything related to Xara? What if I want help from people like you? Do I still post in Dear Xara?

    behzad, that is about the only Forum Xara staff ever bother with (Rob-Xar and MB365 excepted).
    I patrol all Forums (actually, I use Quick Links > Today's Posts and Unanswered Posts) and start from there.
    I usually try to sit out for 100 Reads to let others engage ('cos I can nick their ideas) before I throw in my opinion.

    For any Magix-served XDA (Magix Update service) i would definitely raise issues, concerns and bugs in the Dear Xara... Forum - https://www.talkgraphics.com/forumdi...p?56-Dear-Xara.
    For Xara Cloud and Xara Pro+, I would use https://www.talkgraphics.com/forumdi...line-Designer), I Post there with Dear Xara Cloud... as my preamble.
    That way I can nail down what I have complained about and if xara has responded.

    In the Bad Old Days when I was a Moderator or in the Days when I was a Bad Old Moderator (you choose), I had visibility of who had actually read the Thread.
    You could refresh https://www.talkgraphics.com/online.php every minute if you were bored.

    You can always PM your mentors.
    I would also suggest Discord: https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthr...Discord-Server.

    It is fine to improve the appearance of the interface, it is fine to modernize the user interface, but it is a big mistake to change the functionality of the selectors / handlers, it is something that the user already has internalized and that is part of their workflow, if this is the future of Xara Designer Pro, it's time to look for other alternatives. Add functionality but don't break down what already works well.

    I forgot to mention that even the shortcuts and the way they are used with the handlers changed. It's very uncomfortable in this new way. I'm sad
    Greetings my friend, I stay tuned.

    When you click New document there are only 3 options now? Options for New A4 document etc. have gone?

    I'm up to date with pro + as of the update released today - I don't see this - have you checked the templates/ENG folder in program files / xara program folder on your system disc to see if any are missing?

    Date: 1st February 2021
    Version Number: 20.8.0.61047

    Release Notes: http://releasenotes.xara.hosting/designer-pro-plus/

    Article: https://help.xara.com/article/573-version-20-8-update

    What's New?

    CMYK Color Profiles
    Further improvements from our last update, you can now select a color profile to use for onscreen CMYK conversion, or upload your own ICC color profile.

    https://www.talkgraphics.com/attachm...188418&thumb=1

    Color profiles controls the way that CMYK colors appear on your monitor, giving you a close representation of how it will look when printed.

    For more information, please see the Color Profiles article here.
    Already a good approach to integrate a color management in Xara.
    But as always with innovations in Xara, itís just an immature thing.

    Why canít you set the color management, Iíll call it that even if itís not, globally for the whole program?
    For example, if I set ECI 300 and open the program again, Xara uses the first profile (US Web Coated (SWOP) v2 insted.
    But I do not want to use that because it is wrong for the European Printers.

    Is it possible to change this in the registry and if so where?

    Problem seems to be because I saved a new default template. On fresh install the templates are all there but when I save my new default template it says it can't save in the existing folder (due to admin rights?) and instead suggests my user/documents folder. So I do as it says and save it to my documents folder and now when I click new document they are all gone. I tried copying them all into user/documents folder but they still don't show? Never had this problem before.

    Edit: actually it was my user folder and not my documents where it saved the template. When I move all the other templates to the same location as where the default template is saved they all show up again.
