Xara :: Live Effects Tool Missing In Designer 9

Aug 31, 2013

I finally downloaded Designer Pro 9 and installed the 64-bit version and, to my horror, realized it does not support Photoshop plugins. So I uninstalled the 64-bit version and installed the 32-bit version.

But now I find that the live-effects tool seems to be missing from the 32-bit version too!

I had thought the 64-bit version might be a bit more stable, but the old one was pretty stable. So now I'm wondering if I should plunk down money for the new version.

I'm pretty happy with the previous version, which oddly enough is called Xara Designer Pro X (go figure). So I'm going to ask for a possibly politically incorrect and certainly unvarnished opinion: How much of an improvement is the new version over the old?

I use it mostly for making graphics for websites or for making posters, leaflets, and such. I do not use it for website design.

Xara :: XPDG MX 2013 - Why Doesn't Live Effects Button Bring Anything Up

May 9, 2013

As I'm trying to learn more of my new programs, I finally came across a tutorial that covered the Live Effects. However, after I've open and created an object (star)(that's another story), I go to the Live Effects button (per the tutorial) but nothing opens. Left click, right click, nothing brings anything up.

Also, in the tutorial it started by drawing the star object...click the icon draw a star, and I get a 6-sided filled object. No star to be found. The oval and rectangular objects draw fine. But no star obect.

I'm at the point where I don't know what should or shouldn't be somewhere or if something is or isn't working. I understand that the Live Effects can be pointed to an external folder where 3rd-party plugins should go, but I was also getting the feeling that something came with the program install (per the tutorial). I've gotten used to things not working in these Xara and Magix programs I purchased, so unlike my first couple of posts, the anger and frustration are being left out.

Xara :: How To Open SVG In Designer Pro

Nov 18, 2011

What is the easiest way to open/import SVG files in Xara Designer Pro?

It's funny you can export as SVG but I cannot find SVG format when importing graphics.

My current workaround is to open SVG files in Illustrator, select, copy, jump over to Xara and paste as enhanced metafile. But what if I don't have Illustrator?

Xara :: Export To PDF From Designer Pro 7

May 12, 2012

When ever I export to PDF from Designer Pro 7 a graphic ends up in the PDF file that isn't any where in the Xara doc. It happens on most files exported from Xara but not all. It also happens on both my laptop and my desktop PC. I'm pretty sure it used to happen in WD6 so it may stem from there.

I've attached a PDF exportd from Xara, you shouild hopefully see two black.. um.. cartoonish feet / foot prints. God knows where they came from, I must have imported them at somepoint. You should also notice they only appear on the first page of a document.

I've tried searching for just outlines in Designer pro but nothing.

Is there an .INI file or cache file I can clear?

I haven't tried a re-install yet as it happens on two PC's so can't see it being that.

Xara :: 300 DPI Used In 50-60 Pages In Designer Pro?

Oct 10, 2013

does the new xarapro have a linked feature for placing 300 dpi images into a 50-60 pages? If not, is it even possible to have that many pages with those numbers of large size pictures? Just wanted to know if others have done such a thing. Also if possible, can a large document be divided into number of xara files and then exported as pdf and put together in adobe acrobat to make a large output for printers?

Xara :: Live Copy Across Pages?

Jun 29, 2011

It seems a Live Copy change made on the page holding the original Live Copy will change all copies on all pages but not in reverse. If I change the copy of the Live Copy on Page 2, only the page 2 object changes (local change) but if I change the original Live Copy or any other copies of it located on Page 1, then all copies on all pages change (global change.)

Not a problem, just trying to understand. If I want to change all Live Copies of an object on all pages of a document then must be be done from the page of the original Live Copy?

Xara :: Designer Pro X9 - Text Resize

Jul 17, 2013

If I type some text, then select the 'Selector Tool', then use the middle 'bounds handles' to resize.I would expect the text to be stretched.But, what I get is resizing in both horizontal and vertical directions. As if I was using the corner 'bounds handles'.

It works as I would expect in Designer Pro X.Is there a setting I've missed somewhere?

Xara :: Animated GIF Ghosting With Web Designer

Feb 22, 2011

I noticed that animated gif that I put into other web builders load fine, show cleanly.Yet when put into XDP6, the same graphics get a ghosting effect.In other words, after letters have cleared the screen, a remaining unintended outline remains. The graphics are clean in previews, viewing directly, using other web builders, or on other sites built with other software.

Today I visited the New Features page for X3D7 and had the same issue with the gif on that page too. (attached screenshot for reference)I am using win7/64bit, 8gb ram, hi-speed internet connection, don't have anything set in the browser and no browser "helper" that is adjusting image quality. This problem is only seen in Internet Explorer, not Firefox.Is there a setting in XDP that needs to be adjusted so this doesn't happen?

Xara :: Error Code-6 When Trying To Run Designer Pro 7

Sep 16, 2011

When I try to run Xara Designer Pro 7 I get a window popup that tell me "The program could not be started. It's possible that the installation folder is damaged." with the error code: -6

No matter what I try I get that error. I tried with a new doawnloaded file, with the file from the CD, after to have removed files on the Intel SSD or hard drives, and keys in the registry (but maybe i missed some!). I also tried with or without system protections/firewall/antivirus as well with or without administrator rights.

My system is Windows 7 64 bits with Xara designer pro 7.1.1.

Xara :: Grouping Layers In P&G Designer 7

Apr 21, 2012

I have just upgraded to P&G Designer7 from Xara Xtreme 3.I had problems ungrouping layers.Maybe others have experienced the same difficulty.

Grouping layers is easy, of course. Shortcut CTRL+G, moves all parts to just one layer.

Ungrouping is not so easy.CTRL+U does NOT revert things to your previous multiple layers.If you've saved saved your file, next time you have to tediously re-create all your previous layers from scratch.CTRL+Z does revert to multiple layers, just as long as you haven't already saved the document.

Xara :: Digital Scrapbooking With Designer Pro

Sep 7, 2011

Designer Pro is an excellent program for digital scrapbooking, with it's all in one abilities everything a digital scrapbooker needs is right here! Even the web design features are very useful for creating complete albums that you can share online or privately with friends or family.

XDP comes with a few nice scrapbook sets, and adding stuff you may already have or stuff you find from some of the many scrapbooking sites around the web is as simple as adding folders to your designs gallery for papers, embellishments alphabets, and word art.

I'm thinking of doing a regular scrap booking posting (I'm not sure yet how often, it will depend on my schedule and interest in the topic) some of the things that I may post will be tips, short tutorials, and Freebies!

For today I have a quick and simple layout template for you. Simply select the photo object in the center and drag and drop your photo file right into the layout. The background "paper" is simply a rectangle with a seamless tile that I created in just a couple of mins. The heading is a simple layered effect that is soft grouped so you can easily change the text and even the font. The embellishments are just a few photo clipart objects from one of the sets that comes with Designer Pro.

Xara :: Add Fills From Designer Pro CD / Layout Backup

May 8, 2013

How do I add those CD fills to the gallery? I noticed they are all stored in a cab file with their file extensions a bit changed, so I guess I could mass rename them and add manually, but I was wondering if there is any clean way of doing it? I don't want to reinstall, because I want to keep my toolbars and other settings...

...which brings me to my second question... how do I save the layout I created? I know new version is about to be released, and I would like to be able to back the layout up somehow and import, so I don't have to go through it all manually again. Anything I can do about it? I already tried backing up the entire xara registry, but didn't work...
