Export tables to Word, Unsupported Characters, Easy access to your account

2 Features 1 Improvement 5 Fixes

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

No more ▯ when you paste in a character that isn’t supported by your current font, such as Chinese, Japanese or Korean letters.

Xara will now check for fonts that support the character and insert the correct character into your text using that font.
