CorelDRAW Graphics Suite Review

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • CorelDRAW software is pretty light even when working with huge designs, fast to load and no lags. Also the files exported are light too, which is great to share.
  • The interface is very intuitive and easy to use, even for new users.
  • Easy to work with different sheets within the same CDR file, for exporting different pages for example.
  • Could offer better use of layers and grouping elements, sometimes sorting through different elements on-screen gets a little confusing.
  • Printing preview is not the best and most precise, could be improved.
  • Integration with other design software could be better.

Pros and Cons

  • Automatic tracing of bitmaps is very powerful and easy to use.
  • Drag and drop importing of PDF as vector objects for editing figures saves a lot of time.
  • Sometimes Eyedropper and drag and drop colors from one object to another stops functioning and requires restarting.
  • The size of arrowheads ends for lines is too limited.

Review from a power user

Score 10 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Ease of use is a major factor in our choice for the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite. With intuitive interface terminologies, users are able to jump right into the applications with ease and confidence.
  • The ability to customize the Suite to fit your particular needs is a major strength of the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite. CorelDRAW customization abilities are endless and can turn the default Graphics Suite into a fully customized powerhouse application catered to a designer's specific wants and needs.
  • Documentation on many features are absent or obscurely hidden which I feel deters users from learning about or how to use certain aspects and features of the suite.
  • VBA in Corel is a major asset and used by many. The lack of knowledge of VBA from many users could be addressed with a more user-friendly way of creating custom macros and toolsets. I feel Corel should implement a user-friendly way of creating custom macros as the VBA abilities of Corel are a major asset that could generate more users and sales while giving current users a more powerful way of using the suite.

CorelDraw: A perfect alternative to Adobe Illustrator

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Infinitely scalable Vector-based graphics.
  • Controlling the overprinting of both fills and outlines for manual trapping.
  • A multitude of export formats including PDFx-1a and multiple levels of EPS and AI compatibility, as well as raster-based formats with full color and antialiasing control.
  • It needs a little work importing certain types of PDFs and EPS or AI formats with Bitmaps contained in them, but it's generally 99% fine.

Pros and Cons

  • Powerful and incredible program of photo retouching. Any image can be perfected and in marketing, that is an indispensable tool to achieve high-quality work.
  • Very easy to use for vector drawings. CorelDRAW proves to be a powerful, capable graphic design app.
  • The trial version has limited features.
  • A little bit expensive compared to other competitors

Great for engravers and sign makers, and not file finicky like other programs!

Pros and Cons

  • Accepts different types of files into one layout: bitmap, vector, text, pdf, etc.
  • Ease of use in exporting to other programs.
  • Ease in accepting files from other programs.
  • Intuitive interface.
  • It's easy to learn and use overall.
  • Some of the font files have spacing issues, for example, Monotype Corsiva is set a little to the right when choosing a centered text
  • We can't save a version of the CorelDRAW file as a jpeg.
  • The auto vertical text centering options don't always transfer well or show if saved as a pdf, so we hand-center text vertically.
