All the new features in Xara Designer Pro X have been created to offer users an even greater spectrum of design possibilities. The new version is set to increase your creativity, but also the productivity of your entire workflow.
Festive social media templates
The holidays are just around the corner. Your social media posts are guaranteed to stand out and bring a smile to the faces of your followers with these festive templates.
Templates for invitations & holiday cards
Special greetings: Create stunning invitations and festive greeting cards to send to clients, as well as family and friends.
Format & color palette
Automatic page width adjustment
The new Scale to Fit Width option automatically scales content within each web variant so that it fits the width of the screen or browser, meaning your website can be viewed better on different devices.
Create the perfect color scheme:
Magic Color Match
For a perfect match between design and photo, use the new Magic Color Match feature to generate a set of Theme Colors from a photo in a single click.
You can then use this as a basic foundation for your graphics, illustrations or documents.
Get results faster:
So clear! Clearly present important findings and data trends in line diagrams.
Grid lines help you to display your data neatly, the X-axis headings can be rotated as you wish, Y-values can be moved with just one click – and much more!
Save angle when rotating objects
When you rotate an object, the exact angle now remains visible even if you stop holding the object clicked. This way you'll always know the exact angle of rotation for all objects.
Create your designs 100% according to your original ideas and Xara Design Pro X will completely handle the cropping process automatically. This way you can easily submit the PDF/X of your design to a print shop and receive exactly tailored prints!
Preview line widths
Lines and outlines can now be adjusted by simply scrolling your mousewheel over the line. Small change, big time saving!
Play around with words:
New text features
Want to put extra emphasis on a few text passages? Now, you can highlight lines and paragraphs with color.
That way, they're guaranteed to be noticed and your texts will look even more creatively designed.
New Text Field Filler Option
The Text field filler has been enhanced with a new option to shrink text when it starts to overflow the text area.
Save time when creating documents: Use Smart Fields to store frequently used text such as company name & address, add them to your docs and update them in a single click.
Uppercase and lowercase tool
Lots of new & easy to apply options including ALL CAPS, all lower, Initial Caps and SMALL CAPS. It’s a great time saver!
Say goodbye to ugly formatting by automatically eliminating widows and orphans. Enhancements to rule-offs and embedded graphics too!
Advanced OpenType Features
New OpenType functions (Swashes, Titling & Stylistic Alternates) offer even more options for eye-catching typography. This way, you can make individual characters, words or entire sections really stand out.
More Smart Text Panels
Make quotations or text sections stand out on your website: The new Smart text panels flexibly adapt to texts.
Focus on highlights:
The new Arrow SmartShapes enable you to create customized arrow shapes exactly the way you need: Adjust the arrows for width and line style as well as length and curvature.
Expanded Smart Labeled Lines
For headings, dividers & technical drawings: The eight new Labeled Line SmartShapes are fully flexible and maintain their size when the text is edited, or scale if you enter measurement units.
Tons of new SmartShapes: Use fully customizable trapezoids, parallelograms, wheels, pentagons and more to create modern designs for social media posts, flyers or invitations.
Improved Table SmartShapes
Bring your productivity to a completely new level with enhanced Table SmartShapes for a more efficient workflow. With a new, wider range of possibilities for design, you can create even clearer tables for your websites, flyers and documents.
