Covered in this month's Workbook

In the XaraXone this month

The May Xara X tutorial combines Xara's typographic functions and illustration features to create a page in an open book. Mike Sims reinvents his Xara 3D animated piston in Part I of this month's Guest Tutorial.  The May Featured Artist Gallery features Jane Phillpot who used to paint in oils and now paints in Xara X. In the Shareware Page you will find Minimiro's useful CMYK Workspace template. And as always, a bunch more. Even a new tip or two.

I am accepting your contributions (Tips, Brushes, Templates, stuff like that). If your site has Xara graphics and is not listed, send me your link and a brief description of how you have used Xara on your site.

The Xara Tutorials, On-line Xara X Manual
and WebXealot CD. The perfect Father's Day gift!

Tens of you have asked your editor (still me hanging in there—by a thread) over the years for a CD containing the Xara Tutorials, WebXealots, and On-line Xara X Manual. Well thanks to Grant E. Remington, all this (and more) is available on a CD in Adobe PDF (Adobe's Portable Document File) file format for easy viewing and printing! (Hold your applause, please).

Grant has provided an Adobe Acrobat reader on the CD for those of you who may not have one, for viewing the PDF files. Xara Ltd. has included a folder of 19 cool fonts, not available on the Xara X CD, as well as trial copies of Xara Webstyle and Xara 3D 4. If you have never tried Xara 3D 4 you are in for a treat with this incredibly easy to use 3D and animation creation application.

So where do you order your CD and what is it going to cost? Click Here to go to Grant's site to place your order. The price for the CD which includes everything; Xara Tutorials from 1996 - 2001, WebXealots 1-35, including #s 16-35 the on-line Xara X manual, the fonts, the trial versions, the Acrobat reader, the whole enchilada, is $20.00 US which includes free shipping in the USA. The cost outside the USA and Canada is $22.00 US and also included shipping. A great price if I do say so myself.
