Better Commenting Means Better Collaboration
The ability to collaborate on key documents in real time with your distributed team has never been more important, which is why we're delivering a big step-up in our commenting capability.
A new Commenting Panel on the right hand side of your document makes it quicker and easier to view, edit, add & respond to comments from your team, or invite new collaborators to comment. Plus there are new options to filter comments (show only resolved, unresolved or comments that mention you) and share documents with comment-only permission.
For full information on these powerful new commenting features read our updated Quick Intro to Commenting.
PDF Editing & Forms
In this release we take the first step in support for PDF forms, an addition to Xara's already great support for PDF:
When editing a PDF, any forms present in the document are now preserved when the modified document is exported back to PDF
The most common types of form fields in PDFs can now be edited in Xara Cloud
Plus many other general PDF editing improvements
Selected Date Form Field
Some fine-tuning that should make selecting objects more intuitive:
Cleaner handle designs (outlines removed)
Square handles are now smaller
Outlines shown on mouse-hover are now lighter and dotted
Outlines around an object with something selected inside are now dashed
Selected objects are shown with a solid outline
Changes to make snap lines more visible, intuitive and informative; a little help to make your page layout look just right:
Snap tolerance increased to make finding snap positions easier
When moving objects, they no longer snap to their original positions
Avoid snapping to center of a guide rectangle; snap to center of page instead
All snap lines are now pink to make them easier to see. Object snap lines are dashed
No snapping to fully-locked objects
ALT+drag now constrains the move to 90 degrees from its current position
Dashed snap lines for object center, and solid snap lines for page center
If you spot anything unexpected, let us know. Every release includes a host of small enhancements and fixes:
Pasting from clipboard sometimes failed with ‘Clipboard doesn’t contain anything’ error. Fixed
Add Page in product sheets now shows only offers pages of the same design theme, not all product sheets
Bulleted list editing. When clicking in an empty bullet point, the text color could change to the color of the bullet point. Fixed
Multi-page selections could sometimes be lost on opening the … menu in the page thumbnail panel. Fixed
Can’t use Delete key to delete a page on Mac. Fixed
Shortcut references on Mac changed from Ctrl to Cmd
The context menu on a photo now has Replace instead of an icon, for the Replace menu.
