Page & Layout Designer combines all the text and page layout features of typical word processor & DTP packages with the image editing power of Xara’s award winning illustration & photo editing tools, to produce a fully integrated, flexible & powerful ‘Document Processor’. An overview of Xara Page & Layout Designer – and why it’s the best software for all your DTP and document creation needs.
Here are just some of the reasons why we believe Xara stands out from the competition, making Page & Layout Designer a great choice for all your DTP and document creation needs. Page & Layout Designer combines all the text and page layout features of typical word processor and DTP software with the image editing power of our illustration and photo editing tools, based on decades of experience creating graphic design products. The result is a fully integrated, flexible and powerful ‘Document Processor’ that can be used to create everything from business cards to multi-page brochures. 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 can be entered as stand alone single words or lines at any place in the document, or in single or multiple columns with advanced text flow controls between the columns, and with formatting controls such as column and page breaks. And there’s an added bonus; Xara’s industry leading screen rendering makes the on-screen text a more accurate representation of the final print result, especially at small sizes or rotated.
Page & Layout Designer includes PANTONE color libraries for use as both spot color and PANTONE process color equivalents. It also offers the ability to produce CMYK color separations. This includes on-screen preview of CMYK and spot color plates, PANTONE color support, spot colors, on-screen printer gamut preview and a lot more. So Page & Layout Designer can produce professional CMYK print results either via PDF/X or via direct four color and spot-color separation via the print dialog.
