    Default Xara Designer Pro+ Update 20.6.0.60714

    Version 20.6 Update
    Date: 3rd December 2020

    Version Number: 20.6.0.60714

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

    Release Article: https://help-cloud-plus.xara.com/art...on-20-6-update

    We've Just released an update for Designer Pro+. The program should let you know on startup that an update is available, or go to Help > Check for Updates.

    What's New?
    PDF Improvements
    In this update, we've made a number of bug fixes and improvements to our PDF filter. Importing PDF's will be a lot more accurate and reliable.


    PDF Fonts
    We've also changed the way we handle fonts within a PDF. Most PDF files include a subset of the fonts used, or embed the font file so it can be displayed accurately in a PDF viewer. Previously, these fonts would not always be used and often Designer Pro+ would use a similar named local font. This means the appearance of text could vary depending on what was installed, and resulted in in consistent editing experience.

    Now, Designer Pro+ will always use the fonts from the PDF (if they are included) so text should appear exactly as the author intended. They will appear with the prefix PDF- in the font name so you can distinguish them from local fonts.

    Font Replacement
    PDF fonts usually only include a subset made of the characters that are included, so if you type a character that is not included, it can't display correctly. Previously when this happened, Designer Pro+ would use a different font that would often look out of place. Now, if you type a character that is not within the subset, you will see this dialog...

    This will replace the PDF font with the selected font wherever it is used. Alternatively, you can click on ignore and you won't be warned about this again.
