    Default Upgrade to ProX

    Over the years I've had a few problems with P&LD and WDP - functions that don't exist in either or both, but do exist in Designer Pro X.
    I know this is subjective, but would $99 be worth it? And is the dreaded update service the same - updates for 1 year and then no more.
    I know I can download a keep a copy of the Designs Gallery.
    Are there any other worthwhile advantages of Pro X I'm not aware of?
    Thanks in advance.

    Info Re: Upgrade to ProX

    LGF, for an annual Subscription of $101.70 (using the LIFETIME voucher), you get Xara Pro+ and Xara Cloud+.

    No Magix. You don't get to keep Pro+ after the end of your Subscription so at that point if you do not re-subscribe, use your $99 to buy back into Magix.
    Keep your current Xara applications installed; they can still be quite useful.

    Upgrade to Designer Pro+ Now

    LIFETIME 50% discount

    Get it now at a 50% discount AND lock in this discount for your future renewals. Use the discount code LIFETIME.
    Download Xara Designer Pro+ for free to get started. Xara Cloud is included.

    LGF, appreciate that but I think Xara Pro+ is better. It depends on what you need it for but I found Magix's lack of support and lock-outs beyond the pale.

    I have written lot of Posts on this subject but you'll have to Search TG to locate them.

    Yeah - Keep getting it but I've got used to it - 1 more mouse click.
    And the Magix offer is a good one I reckon.

    No, just the tedium of another upgrade.

    @behzad. I’m really surprised on your professional use you haven’t upgraded to Pro+ yet. No nags, more updates, more service.
    I’ve got 4 websites on this service now and I’m pretty happy. A yearly for me just works. And if you so desire there’s the branding package they offer. I haven’t played with that, but could come in handy.
