Wow, has Xara Xtreme Pro gone down well! The upgrade in particular has proved much more popular than we expected. But some people have complained that we did not tell them about the intro offer early enough. And so, due to popular demand, we've extended the introductory offer for Xara Xtreme Pro until Thursday Dec 21st - i.e. just a few more days. See below for more details.
Delivery expectations for the boxed version (with CD, 2 manuals, etc) are that we receive these from manufacturing and start to ship in late January (so most people should expect to receive them in February). Of course if you order Xara Xtreme Pro now, you do get access to a fully working download version in the meantime.
Now is the season of goodwill to all, and so we have a special Christmas offer for everyone. The Xara Xtreme Pro offer ends on December 21st, but in its place we have 25% off all other Xara products over the holiday break. That includes the regular Xara Xtreme, Xara3D, Webstyle, Menu Maker, ScreenMaker 3D and even Xara Graphic Studio. This Xmas offer ends on Jan 4th.
Visit the Xara graphics forums to discuss or find answers to your graphics needs. Our pick of top talk this month:
Because the options dialog is non-modal, you can quickly create an XY grid of evenly spaced shapes: Draw a shape, click Ctrl+Shift+o to open the options dialog. Enter an X duplicate distance of the spacing you require e.g. 2cm, and the Y=0. Click Apply, select the object and Ctrl+D to duplicate the object across the page as many times as required (the Options dialog remains on screen). Now just adjust the Y value and set x=0 (remember y has to be a negative number to copy down the page). Click Apply again. Select all the objects and now Ctrl+D for as as many rows as you want.
