"Great Product but bad support and annoying forced pop-ups"
What do you like best about CorelDRAW Graphics Suite?

I think CorelDRAW (vector Graphics) is the best graphic product around or was. I started using it when it was Corel2, sometime around 1990. It integrated fantastically with CorelPain (Bitmap Images), both felt and work similarly. I liked it so much so that we bought near 1000 copies for our Engineers and I never looked back. Before we purchased we evaluated three other products, including Arts & Letters and Adobe but by far, Corel was the best, hands down.

What do you dislike about CorelDRAW Graphics Suite?

In the 30 years since, Corel has become so-so. Once, CorelDRAW and CorelPAIN felt like the one product, and most functions were similar. Since they feel like different products, with even a simple cut and paste between the two causing size problems, I can no longer say that it is the best on the market as I see Paint Apps with better functions than CorelPain, including masks, effects, filters, and the like. Often I use online bitmap editors instead of CorelPain and have other BitMap editors to fill CorelPaint's huge omissions. One of my biggest gripes is background removal and masks, but one thing is even worse; Corel Support. What can I say to Corel support that 100's of published gripes do not already say. Hundreds of complaints about Corel Support, especially since its 2021 expensive upgrade seems to be the least stable since the '90s. But there is one Corel Unique feature across all Pain, Draw, and Video that raises the heckles of most people to the boiling point, forced pop-up inside the program. As a Corel user, you have to log in to your account as a security feature, which is understandable. But, Corel uses this to piggyback a stream of in-program pop-up spam advertising that is difficult to stop. Yes, there is a setting, but that is a recent addition, only after hundreds or even thousands of complaints. Summary - Look around first before you buy, and consider the steep price of Coraw Graphis Suit, which tries to sell you its products as an integrated suite. It is integrated, but not very well, and the great feature it once had, that the Pain and Draw worked and felt very similar, that is long gone. With a price tag of $640, 'for the graphics enthusiast', it is not worth the cost. The cut-down, Essentials version for $235 may be good value, but they need to improve stability, remove pop-up spamming and realign the two products functions. You could do the ridiculously priced Professional version for $549/ PER YEAR or even the Technical version for $895/y but I would suggest shopping around to get exactly what you want from different products without a yearly cost. If the functions were similar as once in the 90s' then it may have been worth it as a new user, reducing vastly on the steep learning curve, but now, shop around. There are so many great and innovative products out there including the market leader Adobe Illustrator but also Affinity Designer. If you are not sure, try Inkscape, a free open-source editing program.

What problems is CorelDRAW Graphics Suite solving and how is that benefiting you?

I loved Corel Graphics Suit, but I think their marketing, support, and design strategy is detached from the 21st century. I think they are going down the path of other products that were once market leaders but failed to adapt to the circumstances like Swiss Watches and Nokia.

"The Adobe Creative Suite on a Diet"
What do you like best about CorelDRAW Graphics Suite?

Corel's signature CorelDraw program combines the vector-layer illustration benefits of Adobe Illustrator with the layout and compilation benefits of Adobe InDesign in one fast program. What's more, this system has been refined for 30 years, so it's seamless, light on your computer's specs, and can import/export Adobe's AI, INDD and PS files. It's generally more intuitive than Adobe as well, though many of the commands hew closely with Adobe. There's also a Photoshop-style program called Photo-Paint, which adequately handles drawing and photo-editing basics. Photo-Paint links to the Draw software so raster changes reflect in Draw documents. The main benefit may be price and licensing: the Corel suite offers you a permanent license for the cost of a few months of Adobe subscription fees. Adobe no longer offers permanent licensed copies, so this may be your best bet for a long-term piece of software.

What do you dislike about CorelDRAW Graphics Suite?

A glaring shortcoming for many is that Corel doesn't offer a Mac version. So unless your computer can swap between systems, you're out of luck. While it's decades old, Corel obviously has never been the Industry standard for graphic design, and while it can export and import Adobe files, there are sometimes minor glitches that can cause headaches when passing along files. Corel's add-ons are harder to find, so be mindful if you rely on add-on brushes, sprays, etc. Adobe's new-ish features/tools (like the Shape Builder and global editing) leave Corel playing catch-up. And while CorelDraw is nearly on par with Illustrator and InDesign, Photo-Paint is nowhere near the level of Photoshop's capabilities -- it's more like the sidekick that supports CorelDraw. Like Adobe, Corel is a decades-old company that still hasn't leaned into the world of touch tablets and Apple Pencils. There's never been a proper Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw vector app variant, though newer third-parties (ex. Vectornator, Graphic, iDesign) show it's possible.

What problems is CorelDRAW Graphics Suite solving and how is that benefiting you?

I've been able to publish 250-page books, complete with illustrations, using CorelDraw. It's been capable of designing manuals, brochures, calendars and comic books from brainstorming to PDF, all via one piece of software. It's leaner on resources than Adobe, and provides a cost-savings by keeping prices lower than Adobe's suite.

"Corel Draw, The Uncrowned vector software"
What do you like best about CorelDRAW Graphics Suite?

Corel is an excellent Graphics software, with a high level of export to multiple files. In its simplest qualities, it attracts me the flexibility and handling of your guidelines. To run it on a complex system like Windows, it is highly intuitive in its early stages. It is special to create complex shapes from scratch, so corporate image designers and digital illustrators will feel at home and they'll love it. In principle, the distribution of its pages is really good. Just as it has one of the best vectorization tools I've discovered for vector illustration software. An interesting factor its unique price without subscription, tools like Bitstream Font Navigator and the Powerclip is priceless. Currently, I use Mac OS and I miss it the speed and intuition of Corel to create different graphics solutions, but at the same time, I preserve my old PC to review sometimes. I hope one day I can use it again.

What do you dislike about CorelDRAW Graphics Suite?

Corel Draw doesn't have a lot of drawbacks, but a few can cause disappointment to a technical draftsman or a creative. Rather than saying I don't like, it seems fairer to mention that improvements should consider, like: Develop compatibility with other OS such as Linux and Mac OS. Generate best file recovery structure and improve the software stability. Focus on the vector software without a lot of new useless modern tools, maybe in 3D solutions. Improve file compatibility in new versions Improve the screen color precision Increase compatibility with another graphics software.

What problems is CorelDRAW Graphics Suite solving and how is that benefiting you?

Corel Draw cover many areas around the visual communication strategies. I improve good results and solved many problems in the next áreas: - Editorial design, - Fonts design, - Vector Illustration. - Corporate Identity - Technical planes. - Vectorization of raster images.

"User-friendly, cost-effective alternative to Adobe"
What do you like best about CorelDRAW Graphics Suite?

CorelDRAW was a great alternative to Adobe. It was easy to use and provided a wealth of tutorials and training materials online.

What do you dislike about CorelDRAW Graphics Suite?

At the time I began using it, CorelDRAW did not have a Mac-compatible version.

What problems is CorelDRAW Graphics Suite solving and how is that benefiting you?

We were looking for a more user-friendly, cost-effective alternative to Adobe for graphic design and this exceeded all of our needs.

"Best for any photoshop project"
What do you like best about CorelDRAW Graphics Suite?

I love variety of tools that Coral Draw offers it is an extremely powerful software that can be used for various projects. In m opinion it is best used for photo editing as it has great tools to make any photo flawless. The price is great for all the tools you get, and variety of projects you can use the software on.

What do you dislike about CorelDRAW Graphics Suite?

There isn’t much I do not like about the software as I use it for different projects, and the cost is in my opinion a fair price.

What problems is CorelDRAW Graphics Suite solving and how is that benefiting you?

The problems coral Draw has solved is quite a few of them. For example when trying to create a marketing image that has both a person, and non human items I can use the photo retouching tools on the human, and the vector tools on the non human items. It saves me from having to switch apps or software for having to retouch a photo of a person.

"Ages old, yet the best designing tool"

Whether it a logo desining, illustration job, CorelDraw is the best and easiest tool to get the job done as a vector. Costs only 16.50 USD per month and CorelDraw is the only softwear which provides such a capability in the industry. Good alternative for Adobe Illustrator.

What do you dislike about CorelDRAW Graphics Suite?

Bit pricey, Better if there is subscription package which offfers only CorelDraw instead of the whole package.

What problems is CorelDRAW Graphics Suite solving and how is that benefiting you?

We primarary use CorelDraw for Logo desining, and web illustrations. Very easy to use tool.

"An illustrator's experience"
What do you like best about CorelDRAW Graphics Suite?

I like that CorelDraw is more economically feasible for smaller firms and individuals than its biggest competitor, Adobe Illustrator. I am really impressed with CorelDraw 8 supports ultra HD 4k monitors.

What do you dislike about CorelDRAW Graphics Suite?

Because Adobe Illustrator is essentially the industry standard, sending cdr files isn't recommended. As such making sure to properly save your files in a readable format is more a priority than with Illustrator. However, this is no majour point against the program. More so just singing to keep on mind.

What problems is CorelDRAW Graphics Suite solving and how is that benefiting you?

Solving the need for graphics and illustrations for client needs and increasing portfolio size. As well as the cost effectiveness of the program. However, it is not quite as cheap as Xara Xtreme, it is still reasonably priced for what you get.
