Page operations

We've improved the accessibility of the page operations, making it easier to control the pages within your document. Now, after opening a document, click on the menu icon next to the page to see the options for that selected page.

You can also select multiple pages with Ctrl + click for individual pages, or a group or pages by clicking the first, and shift + click the last, and access the options to perform bulk operations.

Add new page

Add a new page from the page layout menu. This is the same as clicking 'Add Page' from the left-hand tool menu. More information on adding a new page.

Add blank page

Add a blank page to your document. This will be inserted under the page you have selected. More information on adding a blank page.

Cut page

Cut (Ctrl + X) a page from the document. Use Paste (Ctrl + V) to paste it elsewhere within the document (or into another document). More information on cutting pages.

Document open performance improvements

Nobody likes watching a loading screen, or waiting for documents to open so in this release we've made a number of improvements to the speed in which Xara Cloud opens your files. On average documents should load 25% faster load speeds than the previous updates (on some documents we saw nearly 40% faster load times).


Preview document

You can now quickly preview your document before sharing or exporting to see what it will look like.

After opening a document, click on Preview button on the top right of the screen to preview your document. This is what it will look like when you share your document or download it (the top and bottom preview/navigation bars won't appear on downloaded documents).
