    Default Management Update

    Hi all,

    Just a small announcement to let you know that Eva, our Product Manager for the desktop titles of Xara is sadly leaving the company for her next adventure. She's accomplished a lot for us, from launching Designer Pro+ to helping Magix deliver Designer Pro X and the other products. We here at Xara wish her all the best in her new challenges.

    I'm very happy to announce that I've been promoted to Product Manager in her place, and will manage the future of our desktop titles. This is something I've wanted to do for quite a while now, and I'm very excited to get started on this path.

    This September will be my 8th year at Xara, starting as a technical support engineer. My journey with Xara has been incredible, and although I will be stepping up to look after the Designer products, I won't let go of that connection to our very users, to you. My focus is to give you a product with useful features. Exciting features. Modern features. To give you a product to write home about. I look forward to working with you all, and to get things done

    I will copy this message in the Graphics Chat channel also.

    Rob, all the best to Eva-K from us in TG.

    Congrats to the promotion.

    Firstly let's thank Eva for her input to the Xara community. Well done Eva and all the best for your future career.

    @ Rob, this is great news and well deserved. Congratulations!

    Please, please don't loose connection with us TG members, you have been a stalwart over recent years and very often one of a group of one that appears to care about communication between users, TG's members and Gaddeston Park.

    Well done you, I think is what you on your side of the pond would say.

    Bravo from this side of the pond. Well earned.

    Congratulations from me too.

    Most of the time you seem to be one of the few who care.

    Excellent news for you and the products.

    Eva, thank you, and good luck in your future endeavours.

    Thanks guys. Eva has been the most energetic and positive person I've known in Xara and I will certainly miss her energy here.

    No doubt will pop in whenever I can to see what is happening. Let's wipe the slate clean here and get things done. No drama, just solutions. Feel free to post your bugs and feature requests, but let me know at the same time via email or intercom. Communication will be our key to success.

    And just a heads up. A lot of projects and releases are already in motion, so we'll complete them before I can fully take over and plan the next steps. Designer Pro+ will always come first, as that is directly under our remit rather than Magix's. If you have a bug that desperately needs fixing, I can get that in there quickly :)
