    Default WDP18 - new features

    1. Anybody know how to save website settings? I always use the pen tool and have never been able to save it in the toolbar on closing.
    I opened a new 1200px website page (why on earth don't xara update these sizes?) added the pen tool to the toolbar and saved the page as a template.....
    Closed down, relaunch, select new from template and of course, the pen tool is not in he toolbar.

    2. Anybody know how to Publish Documents Online - this could be useful for some of my clients....

    1a. You need to create a New Control bar and add the Pen Tool to that.
    1b. You can use XaReg helper app > General > Show Pen Tool on Flyout.

    2. Use Web Properties > Export, change Transition from Website to any other and the Viewer option > Pdf download is accessible.

    Sorry Acorn - When I do all pages web preview, I get the pages at the bottom of the screen - great - - I just don't see the download pdf option.

    When I publish the site for real, it just shows the "ordinary" site

    LGF, check the document you pulled the image from and see if it is for XDPXv18 or XWDPv18.

    UPDATE: found it - https://www.magix.com/us/web/xara-we...mium/#c1382716, so XWDP should have the capability.
    It is here in monochrome: http://releasenotes.xara.hosting/web...Anchor:588mmsh

    It's Xara Web Designer Premium 18.0.0.61670 DL x64 Mar 22 2021 - don't understand why I don't get that option - that's really a bummer.
    I'll try and get hold of tech support and see what they say

    My XWDP doesn't have the PDF option either. Looks exactly the same as LGF's screenshot.

    The comparatives between Web Designer Premium and Designer Pro https://www.xara.com/eu/designer-pro/compare/ (if this is up to-date) suggest you do not have an PDF export option in Web Designer Premium.

    With Pro, the Viewer Options, assuming Export is a Transitional/ Supersite provides the additional PDF checkbox. If you export as a Website, these options are not available.

    I can't tell whether the WDP exclusion is intended in the new releases.

    Gary, said the Website bit in the very first Response.

    Methinks this is another Magix muck-up. If the "Publish document online - New since November 2020" is wrong than Magix is trading close to the wind.
    If the Release Notes are wrong then Xara has a hand in it.

    The last modified date of the Comparison page is 06 May 2021; this does not means it is accurate.
    The Web section is common to XWDP and XDPX, yet the Import/Export section states DPF(/X) Export is explicitly disallowing them.

    @Rob-Xar - I am moving this Thread to the Dear Xara Forum for Xara to clarify.

    Web Designer Premium doesn't have the ability to export to PDF, so it was removed from the export tab. The Magix website is incorrect in this case. I will contact them to ensure this gets updated.

    Thanks
    Rob
