    Got questions?

    What's new since v19?

    V20 is our latest perpetual version, packed with new features, improved performance, and a more intuitive user interface. For a detailed comparison between V20 and V19, please refer to our version comparison in the section above.

    How does V20 compare to the Plus products?

    v20 offers a similar set of features to those of Plus products. But Plus products are continuously updated with the latest features and come bundled with “Elements.” If you’re looking for the most up-to-date tools and premium content, our Plus products might be the right fit.

    What content is included in v20? Is there more in Plus?

    V20 is a perpetual version of our product, offering a one-time payment for users who prefer this model, feature set and don’t need a content service. For now, “Elements” is offered bundled with plus products as it requires a subscription.

    How can I buy the OCC (now called Elements)?

    Our Elements(Formerly Online Content Catalog) is included with our Plus products.

    I bought a previous version from Magix with a subscription similar to "Elements." What happens now?

    If your subscription from Magix has expired, you can choose to subscribe to one of our Plus products which offer “Elements” bundled, to continue accessing our premium content library. “Elements” is our latest and most comprehensive content offering, designed to give you more design possibilities.

    How do I access v19 or older license keys, software downloads, and manage devices?

    Access your serial numbers and software download links through the Magix Service Center. If you forgot your login to the Magix Service Center, contact Magix’s customer support.

    What level of support is available?

    Xara prides itself on the success users have with our products. We invest in creating resources for users to get answers and how-to guidance in real-time as designs are being created.

    Will there be future versions after V20?

    While V20 is our latest offering, we plan to develop future versions that incorporate new features, enhancements, and the latest design trends. There are no dates or plans set for a future version. If you require the latest features, updates, and constantly updating design content, the Plus versions are updates on a regular basis.
