What do you like best?

Corel draw was the first one software to work on Vector Graphics, while Adobe was working on Adobe Photoshop which was based on Pixel Graphics. Corel draw has so much rich tool box that people are creating art-pieces using corel draw, which are actually very confusing to distinguish that is that a corel draw creation or is that some real photo. Corel Draw has came up with whole package of extra softwares like, Font Manager, Photo-Paint, Capture, etc which are really helpful in enhancing the capability of Corel Draw. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Though Corel Draw is one of the most powerful software available right now, It is very high usage software which constantly hungry for Ram and Other resources of computer system which can results into computer system hang or auto-restart. And another one is that Corel Draw is too much expensive comparing to it's competitors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For Vector Graphics work there are many alternatives are available for corel draw like Adobe Illustrator and Sketch but still for best performance, Corel Draw is the first priority. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The Corel Technical Suite packages CorelDraw (a solid, Illustrator-style graphic design program), with CorelDesigner (a newer, AutoCad-style program for engineers and manufacturers).

Corel has often been used to design catalogs and periodicals in the manufacturing arena, so this allows the Marketing and Engineering teams to play better together. The Engineers can create a technical design which graphic designers can add their marketing materials, all using Corel software. This is presumably easier than exporting something created in AutoCad. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wouldn't say I dislike anything about it, but I find it odd. Adobe Creative and AutoCad are different programs with different purposes -- so I'm not sure their Corel counterparts need to be packaged together. This seems clearly a "soft" argument for AutoCad users to try Corel Designer (Just like how CorelDraw pitched itself as an Adobe alternative when Adobe started subscription only pricing). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you just want to do advertising materials, don't buy this. Buy the cheaper CorelDraw Suite, which has most of these programs already included.

If your workplace or school uses 3D modeling, rotoscoping or the like, this is a cheaper option than AutoCad. It's just a weird choice to bundle it with a graphic design suite. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have it at my workplace, but I don't work in a manufacturing field so we don't use Designer much. I think it would be useful if you have engineers creating visual objects (schematics, 3D designs, etc) that you'll then want to advertise. It's a niche market.

What do you like best?

CorelDraw is intuitive for new users to learn, but has advanced features that powerusers can put to incredible use. The ability to create custom macros seamlessly in their macro editor is a huge feature for poweruses, while the add-ons (such as PowerTrace) are incredibly powerful. Additionally, CorelDraw does a great job of displaying Pantone color alterations when using halftones and other settings. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

CorelDraw uses a lot of system resources, but most graphics programs do. Additionally, it could handle outlining, converting to curves, and some duplication functions much better. Perhaps the worst problem is that X7 is especially buggy with Windows 10, which requires some patience. Documents using large amounts of curves or nodes suffer under the wieght of Windows 10, and lead to frequent crashing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This is worth every penny! (And you only pay once) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CorelDraw makes our screenprinting and design production fast --- faster than competitors. The biggest benefits so far have been to be able to code our own macros, which allows our workflow to be sped up tremendously. The ability to quickly flip between workspaces, unlike Illustrator, also makes flipping to different print applications seamless. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

CorelDraw is hands down the best vector/CADD based program I have ever used. I do all of my wireframing for websites and prototypes in this program because it's easy and efficient. The program is super intuitive and straight forward. I also use it for all vector protects and full scale designs. I like that after I wireframe a site, I can go right back to the same canvas and easily start fleshing the site out in a vector format, as opposed to Photoshop where everything is bitmap and non-scalable.

What do you like best?

The price of a good CAD program these days is out of hand. You not only have to buy the software, but you also have to pay a subscription rate in order to keep it updated. Corel does not do this. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The libraries (linetypes, weights, symbols, etc.) are a bit lacking. You can create custom library objects easily enough, but there should be a more extensive library by now. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use CorelDRAW for creating site plan renderings from construction drawings. CorelDRAW Technical Suite works seamlessly with CorelDRAW Graphics Suite for creating technical drawings, 2D and 3D renderings and is much less expensive than those subscription CAD programs Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
