Some of the format of this tool are very useful for additions and perfections of colors. I can make design much more interesting and beautiful and attractive for my clients. Adobe Illustrator has capacity to work on a large or different files at once...

Subscription model of software sucks. I grew tired of the model and instead switched to affinity design. Never looked back

As aforementioned, the tools at your disposal in Xara are less than of Adobe Illustrator. As such the possibility of outgrowing the software for many is almost an inevitability.
