Overall Satisfaction with CorelDRAW Graphics Suite

We use Corel for most of our Vector Art Needs. It address our art design concerns.
  • You can "move" graphics all around in it quite well
  • It's good for custom designs you print on signs and merchandise
  • The functionality is solid
  • It needs to be easier to do photo design and conversion of images
  • It would be nice if the import really worked for importing AI files
  • It hangs a lot as a program
  • When it gets stuck, it cost me a real 20 mins in my day.
  • Sometimes it doesn't convert pdfs correctly. But, it also helps me make quick edits on vector artwork
CorelDRAW is the best out of the Corel products.
It's not easy to get people. The tutorials don't really "tell you" exactly how to do stuff. You have to depend on Youtube and even then, it's not the best. Corel really needs to put out really good quick tutorials on how to do "key" special effects, like how to remove a background QUICK, Art Conversions, Best Practices, etc.

You want the ugly truth? I wish Corel did everything Illustrator does. However, Corel is a STRONG solid program. If you want a dependable software that you can do pretty creative stuff in. Corel works. You can do things in it that you can't do anywhere else. It works really well for creating signage and layouts for products.
