    • Clone tool

      New Repeating Objects option

      The Repeating Objects feature now offers a ‘Make Repeating’ option. This turns the current selected object into a Repeating Object, without automatically copying it to all pages - you can then copy it onto selected pages.

    • CMYK-control

      CMYK Color Profile Control

      The Color Profile used to display CMYK colors on screen and on export can now be controlled for each document, via the View tab of the Options dialog



      Fast-loading lines and brushes

      Previous versions of Xara experienced a delay in loading the Line Gallery which in some cases also caused the current selection to be lost.



      Designs Gallery - Now Online

      For maximum convenience and productivity, the Designs Gallery now automatically connects and updates online, so it has the same content as the Online Content Catalog (Xara Elements).

    • align-toolbar

      Align Toolbar

      The distribute options on the Align Toolbar have been changed from Distribute centers, to Distribute equally spaced, a more common requirement because it works well with objects of different sizes.

    • Language

      New Language Support

      Now available in Dutch, French and Spanish, German and English.

    • font-selection

      Font Selection

      Automatically find and apply installed fonts with special characters.

    • working-tables

      Working with tables

      Now you can design tables, product sheets, and invoices in Xara, use and edit them in PowerPoint and MS Word documents.

    • Copy-external-data

      Copy external data into Xara

      Copy and paste data from spreadsheets or other external sources into your Xara tables; for accurate and beautiful marketing and sales docs.

    • Tables

      Fully Customizable tables

      Re-order rows & columns with a simple click & drag, paste multi-line text from spreadsheets and copy cells from one table to another.

    • font-size

      Change font size and Auto-fit

      Automatically turn auto-fit off by changing the font size on all the text in a text box where auto-fit was on, so that the text size change will just work.

    • smartfields

      Multi-line SmartField Values

      An efficient way to deal with commonly used text phrases that you want to insert in multiple places in text.

    • smartshapes

      Intuitive handling of SmartShapes & Photos

      Photos can now be scaled and stretched by any of the selection handles. Switch to the Quickshape Tool to see all the handles of a SmartShape and to the Photo Tool to see all photo related handles.



      New Google Fonts

      We’ve added 21 new Google fonts offering new and interesting typography options.

    • shape-editing

      Shape Editing Improvements

      Now you can maintain the angle of the bezier curve when you drag its handles to change its length. When dragging a point or curve handle you can constrain the movement of the handle relative to its original angle with nearby points.

    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.
