  126 
  127 <p class=Base>Welcome to Xara Xtreme LX, a fast, easy to use, drawing and 
  128  illustration program able to create high quality drawings.</p>
  129 
  130 <p class=Base>&nbsp;</p>
  131 
  132 <p class=Base>Xara Xtreme LX, (also still referred to as Xara LX) is based 
  133  on Xara Xtreme for Windows. All the main tools now work and most features 
  134  required to create and edit complex drawings are functional and work well.</p>
  135 
  136 <p class=Base>&nbsp;</p>
  137 
  138 <p class=Base>This Help is based on the help files for Xara Xtreme and 
  139  so is a complete and detailed explanation of how all the tools work. Because 
  140  Xara Xtreme LX is not yet complete you will find some features described 
  141  that are not yet implemented.</p>

  162 
  163 <p class=Base
  164     style="font-weight: normal;">There is a comprehensive 275 printed manual 
  165  available. Although it covers the completed, commercial Windows version 
  166  of Xtreme, you will find it a helpful resource in learning to us Xara 
  167  LX. It can be ordered from <a href="http://www.xara.com/products/xtreme/buy.asp"

  170 <p class=Base
  171     style="font-weight: normal;">&nbsp;</p>
  172 
  173 <p class=Base>We have an active messageboard of Xara Xtreme users at <a 
  174  href="http://www.talkgraphics.com"
  175     target=_blank>TalkGraphics.com</a> who will welcome and help new users 
  176  find their feet. They are happy to answer questions about the product. 
  177  There is a huge archive of tips, tutorials and answers here, going back 
  178  years. There are two Xtreme forums.</p>
  179 
  180 <ul type="disc" class="whs1">
  181     
  182     <li class=kadov-p-CBase><p class=Base>One is generally about how to 
  183  use Xara Xtreme. This is frequented mostly by users of the Windows version, 
  184  but the operation of Xara LX is so similar that you will find this a useful 
  185  resource. <a href="http://www.talkgraphics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=16"
  186                 target=_blank>http://www.talkgraphics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=16</a></p></li>
  187     
  188     <li class=kadov-p-CBase><p class=Base>Alternatively there's a specific 
  189  Xara LX forum. This tends to contains discussions about Linux specific 
  190  technical issue. <a href="http://www.talkgraphics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=41">http://www.talkgraphics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=41</a></p></li>

  195  is also a great resource, packed with tutorials and tips. This again has 
  196  been written for the Windows version but will be extremely helpful in 
  197  getting to know Xara LX.</p>
