CorelDRAW 2019 Released

March 11, 2019

CorelDRAW 2019Corel changed the CorelDRAW release cycle to annual releases a couple of years ago. Following that schedule, CorelDRAW 2019 is now available. I’ll include some of the new and improved features below. Visit Corel’s Web site for more details, to download a free trial or to purchase. Future posts will provide more details as they become available.

ENHANCED! Objects docker: Managing design elements, layers and pages has been totally reimagined. The new Objects docker now gives you direct control over the structure of a document and fast access to its components.

ENHANCED! Pixel workflow: Ensure all graphics for the web are pixel perfect. Align the pixel grid to your page edge so any graphic you export has the crisp edges, and a new Align to Pixel Grid button makes it easy to perfect shapes.

NEW! Non-Destructive Effects: Apply, modify, and experiment with bitmap effects on both vectors and bitmaps without altering the source image or object. The new Effects tab in the Properties docker is the hub for non-destructive editing.

NEW! Templates: Enjoy an updated New From Template workflow and a wide range of totally refreshed templates, available for download free from “Get More” in the Welcome screen.

ENHANCED! PDF/X standards: CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2019 offers a greater variety of ISO-compliant PDF/X export options. New support for PDF/X-4 ensures easy output of files that are compatible with the widest range of devices.

ENHANCED! User interface: Take advantage of an interface that’s even easier to navigate. Find and replace project elements more efficiently, enjoy a streamlined Print Merge experience, and a reorganized Options dialog.

ENHANCED! Performance and stability: Work with CorelDRAW Graphics Suite quickly and responsively. Enjoy performance improvements relating to text handling, startup time, document loading times, graphics rendering and more.

The Biggest New Feature?

While this one may not be of interest to some of you, it is a huge change that could bring in a lot of new users. There is now a native version for the Mac that runs on macOS 10.14, 10.13 or 10.12, with the latest revision.

Just as with the new Windows version, visit Corel’s Web site for more details, to download a free trial or to purchase.
