    I hate to Nag! but going back to my post earlier, would I still be seeing the Nag screen if I do not update and continue with what I have?

    I think there are many who are much more qualified, than I am.
    And to be honest, I've not used AD that much. Why? Well, I find Xara easy to use.
    No doubt, if I spend the same number of years on AD, I may also get proficient on AD.


    What I do want to say is that Xara/MAGIX seem hell bent on pissing me off, whilst Affinity continue to provide good service.


    This is the message I have to get past EVERY time I start XDP17.

    Attachment 128022

    And Xara/MAGIX Support has said: "The notification about your update service expired is unfortunately something that is not possible to get rid of, there is no way how to stop it from popping up."


    Whilst Affinity continue to provide updates, even though I bought AD many, many years ago.

    Attachment 128023

    And this was the second update from Affinity in about 5 months.
    For a product that's a fraction of the price of XDP.

    I just don't understand what Xara/MAGIX hope to gain by this permanent message?!
    If it's more business, then it's unlikely to be from me.
    Rik ... this is a older thread but I see we didn’t answer your question. Xara/Magix want you to continually update, hence a countdown clock and daily reminders. I’d hope they’d start reminding a month prior.
    Xara Pro+ does not remind until around a month prior.
    I have all Affinity products and do enjoy them.
    Solution: go Xara Pro!

    it's the solution I chose, and you chose.... but rik's point, I am sure, is that he does not need to upgrade from version 17 - and so to pay every year, as you have to with pro + would be a waste of money...

    I can stand the nagging.
    Besides as a bonus we get @egg and @acorn who are magicians!

    The nagging today states that I can get the latest at Magix for $120 Canadian upgrade which is a good deal, but I am on the fence still with + offer. This is the first time that a software is sold by two different companies. I also like to keep my software and not subscribe to it every year.
