    Default Xara Designer Next

    Hello! My name is Denis and I am a graphic designer from Russia.
    I have been using Xara products from 1998 and since then I have watched them develop.
    For several years now I have been upset that the development of the program has gone, in my opinion, in the wrong direction.
    Previously, it was a wonderful product for an illustrator, graphic designer and layout designer, but now we are forgotten.
    I had to switch to another product that is evolving, working with the community, and moving in the right direction.
    But every time a new version of Xara Designer comes out, I download the trial version in the hope that something has changed.
    After all, I have a lot in common with this program, with it I began my career as a designer.

    I start this topic in the hope that Xara Ltd will notice and listen to me and other users.
    I want to come back again and proudly say that I work in Xara Designer, because it is the fastest, most convenient and most functional product for the artist and graphic designer.
    Let's share our wishes for the development of the Xara Designer functionality, let's help the developers make the product better. Well, now, I want to share a little fantasy.

    This is the first sketch of what I would like to see in future versions of the program.

    Many of us feel that way sorry to say "I start this topic in the hope that Xara Ltd will notice and listen to me and other users" don't hold your breath for this to change any time soon if ever. Post your concern in Dear Xara

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

    Your English is better than our Russian.

    Xara desktop version is now being marketed by Magix a German software company and I am sad to say, does not appear to be a high priority with them.

    Xara UK is continuing with Designer Pro + and Xara Cloud. Xara is making very frequent updates with Xara Designer Pro +

    But I agree, some of the Magic has gone out of Xara Designer Pro X.

    The point is not that it can or cannot be done in Xara, but the convenience and reduced time for simple tasks.

    This is just sad. I am a programmer by training and will never, even for small sites, use Xara. The result is very junk code and poorly adapted for search engines.
    There are a bunch of constructors that are much more thoughtful and functional. Therefore, I wrote that Xara chose the wrong path of development.
    It all started as a lightweight, fast and functional graphic designer's tool, and now it is turning into a Frankinstein's monster.

    It is my sincere wish that all of the Magix went out of Xara.
