IN THIS MONTH'S EDITION...
  • If you're a website owner and you've received an email from Google with the bad news that your site is facing a lower mobile search position because it's failed their mobile-friendly test, then don't despair. This month's tutorial covers in detail how to create mobile variants in Web Designer 10 Premium or Designer Pro X10. Sites created in V10 pass the Google mobile friendly test, does yours? Find out more in the tutorial.

  • We've got not one but two short half prices offers running currently. There's 50% off both Xara 3D Maker 7 and MAGIX Video Pro X6, so whether you want a bit of fun creating 3D still and animated headings and titles, or you have some serious video editing in mind, now is the moment!

  • If your site is already mobile friendly and you're not considering either 3D or video, then cut straight to this month's excellent Inspirational Art, a selection of images of our choice. We've also added a new artist to the Xara Gallery, Dave Cockburn - more info in Other News below.

  • Coming soon... check back in April for a brand new look for xara.com!

  HINTS & TIPS
Page Co-ordinate Direction
It's easy to change the direction of the page co-ordinates - for example set the 0,0 point to be the top left hand corner and increase down the page. You'll find the controls in Options > Utilities > Grid & Ruler tab.

Right Click Menus
We think right click menus can be great time savers and we use them a lot. Try a right click on an object or the page background and you’ll find lots of useful context-sensitive options.
