New Line Charts

We've added a new type of chart into Xara Cloud - Line charts! You can insert and use these charts immediately from the Insert > Charts menu.

Chart Improvements

We've made significant improvements to our charts by adding several more controls to change its appearance and movement. Here are some of the new handles will now show:

For bar charts we've also added the height control, so you no longer have to resize the whole chart if you wish to change the height only.

Direct PDF file open

After much development and testing, we've now enabled opening PDF files directly from the file picker.

You can now open, edit and export as PDF completely within Xara Cloud! This feature is still in beta so please feel free to give your feedback from the Intercom button at the bottom right corner.

Shortcuts for SmartFields and Company Fonts.

We've added buttons to the SmartFields and Fonts panel to easily jump into your Control Panel and add additional values or fonts:
