This software has been the bane of my existence. When I loaded old CorelDraw 12, Corel prompted me to upgrade and gave me a free 30-day trial of X6. This led me to believe I could upgrade from CorelDraw 12. I bought the X6 upgrade from Amazon. Turns iut you can onky upgrade from X5 or X4 and you better still have the serial number. Corel support basically told me "too bad." I then bought the full version of X5 with plans to load it then use the X6 upgrade. Turns out X5 doesn't work with Windows 8.

I then bought Windows 7 and upgraded my desktop (where I had installed CorelDraw 12). X5 still won't load. I get a message saying that there is another installation of CorelDraw. But that was overwritten when I installed windows 7.

I have mixed feelings about posting a 1-star review because, technically, it's not about how X6 is to use. CorelDraw offers a lot of features for far less than Adobe's Creative Suite. But this experience is outrageous. Over $300 later and I still have too-old-to-be-supported CorelDraw 12. Amazon won't take back the software because I opened the box and Corel tricked me into buying an upgrade version I can't use and will do nothing about it.

I have been using Corel Draw professionally since version 3. This is not intended to be a comprehensive product review, but more of a first impression after upgrading from Corel Draw 7, which is finally hiccuping too much under Win 7. (Not a bad 15-year run, though!)

I have always liked their clean interface, but it is not really intuitive, and takes some learning. Similarly, they tend to locate menu items in their own fashion, making transition difficult if you are more used to the Microsoft-standard way of doing things.

Their vector manipulation tools are the same great quality: I can create mind-blowingly complex flyers in a few minutes. The tools work pretty much the same way as version 7 and the X64 support makes everything fly!

I will like the new Open Type support and the new vector shaping tools best, I think.

I have primarily used the suite for its vector illustration module, rather than the Photo Paint photo editor. However, Photo Paint is a decent photo editor, though (buy Adobe Photoshop elements for a much wider range of filters.) My Adobe PE 8 is much slower to start up, and importing a large number of JPGS to work on one-by-one is a real pain.

I think they could do better than only 10K vector clipart and 1000 photos. Corel's art quality has always, however, been wonderful.

Corel used to include an OCR module, which seems to have disappeared in the intervening time.

My installation will not let me drag and drop clipart from MS Publisher. This is possibly because it installed itself in parallel with Corel 7, which does not really like Win7.

Notes-- Until 18 June, Corel will allow upgrade from--as far as I can tell--ANY Corel product, as well as some Micrografx ones.

I have been a Corel user since its earliest days. So I am accustomed to some oddball changes that at first do not make sense. I am also accustomed to waiting for the fixes to new features once there is a Service Release. But I also expect a program so mature to not be as damaged on arrival as this one. This is after all Version 16 and its been almost two decades since Version 1. Yet several standard features are now broken. For example if one tries to use the Transformation Dockers (to change size, rotation, position, etc.) the 'Enter' key no longer works. What modern program does not allow you to use the 'Enter' key in place of a mouse click? I have to go from typing numbers to clicking the mouse. In the Contour Docker it fails to retain the prior setting so every time I need to expand or contract a shape, I have to re-enter everything - size, inside versus outside, and again I can't use the 'Enter' key. So this is triple damaged. I am also discovering major hanging and freezing. The PDF import is still troublesome frequently stating 'Corrupt file' even though every other of several programs I own can open or import them. Add to all this, the program is noticeably slower than X5.

On the plus side, there are a few interesting and intriguing tools such as the Virtual Segment Delete. A couple of tools surprised me by correctly anticipating what I was trying to do. So that is good. The main reason I bought the Suite was because Corel Connect has multiple trays (something it should have had from the start). This at least works well and I think it's a feature lacking in Picasa and Windows Live Photo. I'm just not sure these features are worth the loss of time from all the freezes, restarting, rebooting, and reconstructing lost drawings.

A word on Corel's support.

Upgraded from v13 with no penalties. What a pleasure that Corel honors the older versions! A lot of new features that seem to make a lot of sense for me!

I remember using CorelDraw back when I was a kid and it was the first graphics program I ever used. Over the years Adobe became the staple for graphic design and when I did formal training for graphic design, the Creative Suite is what everyone learns. But over the years I keep coming back to CorelDraw because it just offers a great package which is so much more flexible than the Adobe Suite at a fraction of the cost. Many of my graphics friends have laughed at me for straying from the norm, but there's just nothing I haven't been able to get done with this software package and Im often laughing back when they are switching out between 4 different programs to accomplish the same thing in a longer length of time!

Draw itself is like a blend of Indesign & Illustrator but Draw has a stronger technical drawing aspect to it. The node control and manipulation is fantastic and ability to use multiple page documents makes things a lot more convenient. The measuring tools are great. Many of the interactive tools make designing SO much quicker than opening up separate menus or windows like in Illustrator.

Im not a huge fan of the PhotoPaint that comes with this package - I think Photoshop is still way stronger for pure raster work! But since PhotoPaint integrates so well with the Draw program I do end up using it a lot anyway for simple tasks within Draw.

Corel also let you put this onto more than 1 computer, so I can have 1 copy on my laptop and another on my desktop, which is really nice of them! I have always hated the 1 computer only rule with Adobe and having to have multiple licenses for my own computers. Its just a waste of money!
