You will get virtually no Technical Support

Richard M., Newegg
30 September 2014
  • Summary: This is expensive software. Corel should provide at least minimal support. They do not. They do however send you advertising while running the program.
  • Pros: Works well when it works.
  • Cons: You have 30 days of technical support. After that you have to buy it. There are known problems with the product and if you reinstall you will not get renewed installation help.

OK but you should know..

Stuart N., Newegg
9 August 2014
  • Summary: Previous versions included on the retail box disks another 1000 fonts (useful), few thousand clip art (meh), templates (ehh), and hi res stock photos. Now there is none of that. Instead you have to register with Corel, become a member of the "Corel Club", log in through the software, and use something called Corel Connect to do excruciating on line only searches for fonts, etc. then download one at a time.
  • Pros: Vector Draw program cheaper than Illustrator, lacks some Illustrator features but has others Illustrator lacks. Paint program capable but, to me, awkward.
  • Cons: Paint program seems mush less intuitive than Photoshop. Extra software like Capture - YMMV

Anonymous, Newegg
18 July 2014
  • Summary: I have used CorelDRAW for sign layouts since 1990, and this is the best version yet. And a Forum to ask any graphics questions you may have.
  • Pros: CorelDRAW X7 is totally new, a Very Strong graphics program.
  • Cons: Nothing that slows me down at ALL

Solid Improvements

Lara P., Newegg
30 June 2014
  • Summary: As I mentioned, a solid upgrade with a collection of improvements I use frequently. The non-subscription model still has appeal, as does the value of a suite for a low price.
  • Pros: The interface is improved but I don't think that it's a huge improvement, especially for experienced users. On the other hand, the new fill tools give a measurable boost to creativity and eliminate a lot of workarounds. I also like the idea of owning the software vs. a lease. A solid upgrade, maybe not as much as X6.
  • Cons: The move to 64-bit and multi-core doesn't seem to have generated any measurable speed improvements from my perspective. Also, the new layout tools are welcome but I think their suite would really benefit from a dedicated layout/publishing tool to compete with InDesign. They own Ventura, it would make a great addition to the suite in an updated format.

The best just got better

Pinetop, Amazon
14 April 2014
  • Summary: I've been a user of CorelDRAW since version 3, and I've been impressed with the improvements of each new version and how it's always improved my workflow. As a freelance graphic designer, time certainly IS money, and I'm always looking for ways to make my work more attractive while being able to produce it more rapidly and efficiently. Once again, this new version does just that with its new features.
