Xara Designer Pro X11 - Quite simply the world's fastest graphics software. Powerful illustration tools, innovative photo editing, flexible page layout and unrivalled WYSIWYG web design. A single application for all your creative work.
What's new in Xara Designer Pro X11:
These are objects that you can 'stick' in place as the page scrolls underneath. A good example is the NavBar which you can stick to the top of the page as viewers scroll down, so they can still easily navigate to other pages without having to scroll back up to the top. In v11 any object can be stuck to any position on the page, or the left of right edge of the browser window.
New Animation Possibilities
A new Web Animation dialog introduces powerful and easy to use new animation capabilities. You can now set up objects to:
- Animate on mouseover
- Animate on reveal ie when the object first comes into view or a trigger object comes into view. So for example you can set objects to slide or fade into view as you scroll down a page
- Animate on click (or tap on a touch device)
Website designs with no obvious page boundary are now very popular, and in this sort of design you'll commonly see a page background that covers the entire browser window and stretches to fill the browser width. In Designer Pro X11 you can make any rectangle or image stretch to fill the browser window, either horizontally or vertically.
Secure FTP Publishing Options
Designer Pro X11 now offers support for publishing with SFTP and FTPS.
'Website M' hosting included free
Designer Pro X11 includes ‘Website M’ hosting, free for one year (worth $1.99 a month). This includes 2GBytes of free web hosting space and one free domain name (e.g. yourname.com or .co.uk or .de etc). Plus if you publish with our Website M hosting you can password protect your web pages.
