Introducing: Blocks - A faster way to build unique websites

230 Web Blocks 16 Website Templates

Most no-code website builders sacrifice customization for ease of use. We give you both.

We are excited to announce the launch of Blocks – Pre-built sections and templates that can be fully customized and combined to build websites in minutes.

Blocks come with layouts, functionalities like e-commerce, media, forms, appointment management, and the tools you already use so you can leave the hassles, hidden costs, and headaches of website building in the past.

Export tables to Word & Powerpoint

2 Features 5 Improvements

Tables created with the new Xara Table tool and exported to Microsoft Word (in docx format) are now fully editable in Word.

Xara tables should now also look visually correct when exported to Microsoft PowerPoint (.pptx) presentations, although they’re not currently editable in PowerPoint (text can be edited but the table won’t update).
