Overall Satisfaction with CorelDRAW Graphics Suite

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite has been part of my design tool box for many years. I have used it in fields including engraving, product demand development, signage, and even a catalog for the company I work for. It works for more than just drawings--I have developed pamphlets, forms, certificates, business cards, signs, and elevator buttons.
  • Logo design
  • Signage rendering
  • Engraving layout
  • Certificates
  • Text to path could be more flexible and intuitive
  • DXF and DWG conversation could be improved
  • Fast rendering
  • User-friendly GUI
CorelDRAW Graphics Suite has the advantage of a fair price, tools are on par with what Adobe Illustrator, many I find far simpler to work with, I have had firsthand experience where CorelDRAW Graphics Suite has been head and shoulders above anything else on the market. I have used free software that is extremely cumbersome, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite beats them hands down all day long.

Do you think CorelDRAW Graphics Suite delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Yes

Did CorelDRAW Graphics Suite live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy CorelDRAW Graphics Suite again?

Yes

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite has been a cheaper option to design work in engraving, product development, and general layout manipulation. The only drawback is the less effective DXF and DWG filter. Importing these files into CAD/CAM packages comes with minor issues that I’ve found ways to work around but without other expensive software this is more difficult.
