New Features

Compatibility and Support
Get the power and stability you need with full support for Microsoft Windows 10 and discover how its features can augment your graphic design experience. Plus, enjoy existing support for Windows 8.1 and 7. Take advantage of the new multi-monitor viewing, 4K display support, and expand your compatibility options with the latest file formats, including AI, PSD, PDF, JPG, PNG, SVG, DWG, DXF, EPS, TIFF, DOCX, and PPT. Work quickly and efficiently with added control from Windows Real-Time Stylus pen-compatible tablets, such as the Microsoft Surface, in addition to Wacom tablets and devices.
Design Features Requested by Users
Take advantage of important design features created based on feedback from CorelDRAW users. Manage complex projects with ease by using the new Hide and Show Objects feature that lets you hide individual objects or groups of objects on a layer without hiding the entire layer. Copy, paste, or duplicate pieces of existing curves with the Copy Curve Segments feature that allows you to reuse curve segments in your projects. Explore the Gaussian Blur to adjust the degree to which the drop shadow feathers at its edges so you can control the perceived distance and size of objects against the background and other elements.
Photo-Editing Features
Improve your favorite photos with powerful new tools to correct and edit in a variety of ways. Try the new Healing Clone tool to remove imperfections by blending them with surrounding colors and textures. With the enhanced Straighten Image dialog box in CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT, you can now correct perspective distortions in photos that have straight lines and flat surfaces such as architectural photos and photos of buildings.
Font Filtering and Search
Save valuable design time with the enhanced font filtering feature. Quickly find the specific font you need without spending time searching in multiple folders. For example, if you're looking for a typeface that has a handwritten appearance, you can do a quick search for "script fonts." The font list will automatically update to show all the fonts on your machine that match that request.
Corel Font Manager
Explore, handle, and organize fonts with the versatile tools in the new Corel Font Manager to satisfy your typeface needs without having to install them. We've got you covered for every profession that use fonts daily, from graphic design, publishing, and illustration, to package design, sign making, advertising, and website design. Explore, organize, and manage your typeface and font collections.
Knife Tool
With the revamped Knife tool in CorelDRAW, split any object or group of objects — vector, text and bitmaps — along straight, freehand, or bezier lines. Create a gap between the new objects resulting from the splitting action or overlap them. Choose an outline option, or let the application automatically select the option that best preserves the outline appearance.
Workspace Customization
Be productive immediately with a workspace that matches your workflow needs. Simply adapt your design space by changing the appearance of your commonly used elements: alter the desktop and window borders colors, customize the icons and text size, and open desktop windows within a floating window.
Learning Tools
Get up and running quickly with a welcoming environment that provides easy setup, an abundance of in-product learning resources, an improved Hints docker, and more. See what's new with either the complete startup tour, or a special product tour designed just for existing power users.
Support for Sharing and Output
With CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X8, you can rely on a collection of the latest industry-standard file formats and design features to create, prepare, and deliver your finished product. The new Border and Grommet dialog box lets you create a banner from a page or from selected objects on a page. Whether you work on small-scale projects, such as logos and web graphics, or larger pieces, such as banners and car wraps, CorelDRAW will deliver the output you need.
CorelDRAW & SDK Developer Communities
Create your own automation tools with support from the new CorelDRAW & SDK Developer Community site. Explore a variety of useful resources, including in-depth programming articles, which can help you automate tasks with macros and create custom tools.

    Corel CDGSX8EFDPUG reviews

    CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X8 - Upgrade (Boxed) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from X8 fits the bill. I have worked with CorelDraw since version 3.0 (on a 386 pre-Pentium PC) going against the artsy Mac- grain. The program has been a go-to vector editing tool in my arsenal every since...easier and more intuitive for me than Illustrator which is probably more a function of which program I learned first. That being said, Adobe Photoshop is my first choice in bitmap editing and Premier for video (have used Vegas and Media 100). Recently, I had to upgrade due to shenanigans by Microsoft to impose Windows 10 (X5 would not show the menu bar in Windows 10). So, once again I paid for the same old code to get the fix. Generally, I leapfrog minor upgrades, now seemed like a good time anyway. I am happy with the result (likewise, migration to Windows 10 has been relatively painless). Of particular note in this edition (or post-X5 editions) of CorelDRAW, is the ability to hit Ctrl+ or- to enlarge or reduce the screen as in the normal civilized conventions adopted by other applications. Bottom line: I've made tons of money with CorelDraw and I am thankful for the product.
