Features of Xara Page & Layout Designer 11


Advanced Text Handling
Page & Layout Designer offers everything you need for manipulating text.You can enter your text at any angle and you can also set your text along a curved path. Additionally, just like any drawn object in Page & Layout Designer, you can freely resize it on the page, and produce creative display text by applying any of the effects, such as transparency, fills, molds and so on - and yet the text remains editable.

Text Styles
Update an element of your Text Style eg font or color, and all text in your document with that Style applied is instantly updated, helping you create professional looking documents. Simply select some text and then traverse the Style menu - the selection will change to show your text in each Style. It’s a quick and easy way to try out your Styles.

Spell check
Includes a powerful spell checker offering check-as-you-type, word suggestions and a user-dictionary - so you can focus on designing documents! Find and correct any mistakes quickly and easily, in realtime while typing.

Supported languages include English (US and UK), German (Germany, Swizterland and Austria), Italian, Dutch, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, Czech, Slovak, Hungarian, Polish and Turkish.

3D Tool
Enhance all your documents with high-quality 3D objects. Turn text, shapes, graphics, and photos into impressive 3D objects with the world's fastest 3D tool, including natural light reflections, shadows and many other options.

Auto Correct / Abbreviation Expansion
Create your own list of abbreviations that will be automatically expanded as you type, so for example PLD could be expanded to Page & Layout Designer as you type. It's great for symbols too - for example you might set up yen to render ¥.

Auto - Hyphenation
A new hyphenation option automatically breaks long words at line ends to give a more flowing appearance to your text and fit more words into limited space. The hyphenation dialog offers full control.

Every document has the perfect font, so you can never have too many of them. Google has recently shaken up the font world by offering a large and growing collection of fonts for free. We bring that collection right into the Page & Layout font picker where you can filter, preview and select fonts from the current 600+ Google Fonts collection. What’s more, if you import a document with Google fonts then the fonts will be automatically downloaded and installed.


Intuitive Page Layout
Includes everything you need for professional DTP, combining advanced text controls with flexible page layout features such as drag and drop editing of images and automatic text flow around objects.

Royalty-free templates
Page & Layout Designer offers all the tools you need to create your documents from scratch, but it is also packed with ready-made, fully customizable templates to suit all your business needs.

Magic Snap
Arranging elements of all kinds (photos, graphics, text, etc.) with absolute precision is fast and easy with Page & Layout Designer. Dynamic "Snap lines" show you the corner points of existing objects and the center of the page when placing your content. Elements can be docked to these lines (just like a magnet), so you no longer need to align objects using manual guidelines.

Flowing Text
The "flowing text" function substantially simplifies document design. Simply move elements and images to wherever you want them and the text will automatically flow around the object.

Page & Layer Gallery
The Page and Layer Gallery is the central location for managing your documents, making it simple to select pages and move, delete, copy, cut or integrate them into other projects.

Publishing to the Web
With Page & Layout Designer you can publish your multi-page print document on the web as a single scrollable document called a 'Supersite' - it's easy to view, totally WYSIWYG, and perfect for fast skimming and browsing of long documents or sharing your documents with others, without the bother of PDF. Great for viewing on touch devices like iPads.

Page & Layout Designer includes a free 500MB web hosting deal so you can easily publish your documents for free.

Other Highlights

Integrated Photo Tools
