Productivity & Interface
Xara Designer is famous for its speed and unrivalled ease of use, making it not just a highly productive tool, but a pleasure to be creative.
Xara Designer has the world’s most sophisticated, highest performance vector rendering engine.
Quite simply this makes it the fastest graphics software to be found.
Direct Action Tools
Xara Designer’s Direct Action Tools allow you to create effects such as transparency, shadows, bevels or gradient fills in an interactive, fast and intuitive way.
No distracting dialogs – simply drag on the object!
Drag and Drop
Many tasks in Xara Designer benefit from being able to use the drag and drop principle, which is the most intuitive way of working and a great time saver.
It also supports drag and drop import of files, such as photos.
Solid Object Editing
Instead of dragging outlines when you draw, move, rotate or resize objects, Designer offers solid live object manipulation.
Only Designer is fast enough to do this on complex vector graphics.
Undo / Redo
Being able to change what you have done is vital in a graphics package.
Xara Designer allows unlimited undo, making experimentation easy.
The Zoom tool allows magnification up to 25,000%, perfect for detailed work.
And it’s super-fast and resolution independent too.
If this image was created in Photoshop with the same detail, the file would be 2000 x 3000 inches, take hundreds of megabytes of memory and file space.
As a vector design it takes just 180Kbytes!
Xara introduced the world’s first vector anti-aliasing to bring maximum screen quality and is still a pioneer with the fastest, highest quality anti-aliasing available in any drawing program.
