    Default Viewing Xara files on osx

    I used Xara for quite a few years back in the day and I have a folder full of Xara files that I would like to look over and maybe covert to jpeg before I biff them for ever. Anyone know of a viewer I can use on osx? I don’t want to go the whole parallels/vwmware route

    Welcome back Brett.

    You might try getting a free Xara Cloud account.
    This uses any browser to operate.

    You could set up a personal cloud drive to your folder of Xara files.
    When you access the folder, it will preview your design files.

    The advantage is you can open the file and edit, all for free.

    Thanks, I was able to review several hundred files (going back to 2000 - wow!). I kept a few and the rest are deleted. Very satisfactory. Thanks for the help.

    yes, 95% of it turned out to be rubbish, so it was easy. Thanks for you help, itís good to see the forum is still ticking over.
