This month we're focussing on the Contour tool in Xara Xtreme. A couple of tutorials and a movie are linked to below.
This month the special offer is for one of the lesser known Xara products, Menu Maker. There are many DHTML menu making utilities out there, but what differentiates Menu Maker is that it builds graphical menu bars, that have dynamic drop-down menus as well.
For anyone who creates websites this is a great little utility. Xara Webstyle also includes the same menu making capabilities, and a lot more, but if you want to create DHTML menus only, then Xara Menu Maker is the answer. The offer of $5 off and the template pack for free lasts until 5th April. Get Menu Maker for just $19.99.
We're working on updates to both Xara Xtreme and Xtreme Pro, more on this next month. Many of the new features are a result of feedback from customers, both from the TalkGraphics forum and direct. If you're a user of Xara Xtreme or Pro, it would really help us to get some more feedback - see the side panel.
Visit the Xara graphics forums to discuss or find answers to your graphics needs. Our pick of top talk this month:
One of the best hidden features of the Contour tool is that it's a way to make shapes fatter or thinner.
