What's new in CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X7 126.96.36.1991:
Redesigned, fully customizable interface:
We've streamlined our tools and settings to reflect your natural workflow, so everything is right where you need it, when you need it. Choose between Lite, Classic or the Default workspace to get started smoothly, then use the new quick customize feature to tailor your toolbox and property bars to suit your needs.
Several new pre-defined workspaces are available to help keep all the tools specific to your industry organized and easily accessible. Choose between Page Layout, Illustration, or set your workspace to look like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator to help ease the transition from Creative Suite.
Total control over fills and transparency:
We've created our most powerful fill engine ever, giving you complete control over your fountain, bitmap pattern and vector pattern fills. Create elliptical and rectangular fountain fills, control transparency within the individual colors of a fountain fill, repeat a fountain fill within an object and more.
Vector and bitmap pattern fills:
Now you can search for, preview, apply and transform both vector pattern and bitmap pattern fills using enhanced controls in the Object Properties docker. You can also save fills you’ve created as the new FILL format, to use them later or share them with other users.
Easy font preview and advanced character tools:
Find the perfect font for any project. The new Font Playground lets you preview and experiment with different fonts before bringing them into your design. Plus, the revamped Insert Character docker automatically shows you all the characters, symbols and glyphs associated with your font, making them easier than ever to find and insert.
Special effects and advanced photo editing:
Explore all-new special effects, including four new pressure-sensitive Liquid tools—Smear, Attract, Repel and Twirl—and new camera effects—Bokeh blur, Colorize, Sepia toning and Time Machine—to create unique images in Corel® PHOTO-PAINT™ X7. RAW file support for over 300 types of cameras gives you even more ways to enrich your images.
Precise layout and drawing tools:
Make sure every element on the page is right where you want it with enhanced layout features. The new Alignment Guides help you position objects quickly, appearing on the fly with suggested alignments to other nearby objects. New Outline Position options let you pick whether an outline is positioned inside the object, outside the object, or an equal combination of both.
High-resolution and multi-display support:
Moving your work across multiple screens doesn't need to be a headache with new multi-display support. Now you can undock your project, dockers and toolbars and drag them outside the application window. Plus, all of the suite's applications have been optimized for high DPI displays, so the interface will appear crisp and legible on high-resolution displays.
QR code generator:
Create and add unique QR codes as a mobile marketing tool on your designs. Add text, images and colors to your codes to make them standout, or blend in—the options are endless! Built-in validation ensures your QR code is fully functional and can be read on major smartphones and scanning apps.
Built-in Content Exchange:
Explore the new Content Exchange, an online repository that's fully integrated with the suite's applications. Share fountain, bitmap pattern and vector pattern fills with our community of users from right within CorelDRAW. Get inspired, showcase your handiwork and upvote the ones you like best.
Learning materials and expert tips:
Whether you're a seasoned graphic professional or an aspiring designer, you may want to learn a new trick. We're here to help with our growing library of dynamic learning materials, including video tutorials, webinars and insights from the experts. Plus, our CorelDRAW Hints offer training videos and tips from right within the application.
Easy color harmony editing:
The enhanced Color Styles docker makes it easier than ever to view, arrange, and edit color styles and harmonies. You can now specify the brightness value, and preserve saturation and hue while adjusting a color. New harmony rules let you snap all colors in a color harmony to a rule-based system, so you can modify those colors while preserving the color harmony.
Easy, professional website design:
Corel® Website Creator continues to make website design easy for everyone. With dozens of new templates and SiteStyles, enhanced support for CSS3 and new HTML5 capabilities, you can quickly design, build, and maintain interactive and eye-catching websites without learning how to code.
Compatibility with the latest file formats:
No matter what kind of file format you're working with, we've got you covered. Featuring support for more than 100 file formats, including the latest AI, PSD, PDF, JPG, PNG, SVG, DWG, DXF, EPS, TIFF, DOCX and PPT formats, plus extensive RAW file support for over 300 types of cameras.
Royalty-free, quality content:
Keep your designs fresh with more than 10,000 royalty-free clipart and digital images, 1,000 fonts, 350 templates, 800 frames and patterns, and more—all included with this graphic design software.
Exciting mobile apps:
Available for free for iOS devices, the new Patterns app creates seamless bitmap patterns from your digital photos. Save your pattern using the new FILL format to use in CorelDRAW, or share your creation via email or Facebook. For Windows 8 users, the new app Designs offers an easy way to find and share the perfect image. Use it to search for images on iStockPhoto, fotolia, Flickr and the galleries on the CorelDRAW.com, then save your favorites for quick reference, reuse and sharing.
