    Question WebP Coverage

    Dear Xara Cloud...

    Again, I am pleased that Xara Designer Pro+ 21.1.0.61938 SL x64 Apr 21 2021 has been provided with WebP for Publishing and individual image Export.

    Does Xara Cloud+ deliver the same functionality?

    For design files created before this version, is the Website > Other > Include WebP images setting Off?

    What is the situation for design Templates? Is the WebP setting an XDA selection or a Template one?

    When the WebP setting is on, how do you override it for a given image? There is no Image > Web image type: WebP option.
    I may wish to compare and contrast WebP against the original.

    When I use Placeholder > Placeholder > Replace with a graphic file, will a selected image also get a WebP surrogate?
    Placeholder > Placeholder > Replace with a graphic file > Browser does not include WebP in the Image filter.

    Why does File > Export WebP, without any object(s), export the page contents when Export area > Selection is chosen?
    Other than this has always been the case for the other image exports?

    Does your coding penetrate Placeholder codes and replace items like CSS: background-image: url(x.jpg); and JS references to pngs and replace them with WebP surrogates?

    Default Re: WebP Coverage

    "Does Xara Cloud+ deliver the same functionality?" - Not currently but likely in the future

    "For design files created before this version, is the Website > Other > Include WebP images setting Off?" - This option is off for all files, new or old by default.

    "What is the situation for design Templates? Is the WebP setting an XDA selection or a Template one?" - Template/File one.

    "When the WebP setting is on, how do you override it for a given image? There is no Image > Web image type: WebP option." - You can't currently.

    "When I use Placeholder > Placeholder > Replace with a graphic file, will a selected image also get a WebP surrogate?" No, Anything within placeholders is not changed, with the exception of widgets from the CC in which they will be exported as WebP also

    "Why does File > Export WebP, without any object(s), export the page contents when Export area > Selection is chosen?" No reason, as you say it's standard behaviour.

    "Does your coding penetrate Placeholder codes and replace items like CSS: background-image: url(x.jpg); and JS references to pngs and replace them with WebP surrogates?" Any code within placeholders (with the exception of widgets as mentioned above) is not touched. If you have a link to a JPG or other image in the placeholder, it'll stay as the code specifies
