Xara Online Designer offers an innovative and ultra-simple way to view, edit and update Xara documents and websites using a web browser on any computer or tablet (yes, even a Mac or Android tablet!), from anywhere in the world.

What's more, Online Designer includes a small but growing number of templates that you can open, edit and publish (or save to PDF) such as social media headings, presentations, flyers, CVs and even a single page website - without even using the desktop software!

Online Designer also gives you the ability to work on documents in collaboration with friends, colleagues and clients.

Note: The Online Designer service is currently in beta and only available as part of the 365 versions of Xara Web Designer, Web Designer Premium, Photo & Graphic Designer and Xara Designer Pro X.
