Create technical illustrations with precision

Actively draw on a projected plane to create isometric or other parallel projected illustrations

Projected drawing modes
Actively draw on the projected plane to create isometric or other parallel projected illustrations for assembly and maintenance instructions. For existing planar objects, you can also project the objects to a desired plane, rather than calculating a rotation and skew angle manually.

Track key information with dynamic callout tools

New! Sticky callouts and easy callout text edits
New sticky callouts conveniently link to the source shape as it is moved or modified. Also new in Corel DESIGNER® X6, you can easily base callout text on object properties by linking it to the source shape metadata. The callouts linked to object metadata are dynamic, saving you time when updating callouts for iterative modifications of an illustration.

Create your illustrations and diagrams in accurate scale

New! Drawing scale control from toolbar
Manipulate the drawing scale from the toolbar at any time for precise technical illustrations. Identify the active drawing scale, switch to any drawing scale preset or set a custom drawing scale for the active document. You don’t need to open a dialog box – you’ll always know the actual drawing scale because it's displayed in the UI.

New alignment guides help you position objects faster

New! Alignment guides
New alignment guides help you position objects faster with suggested alignments to the existing elements on your page. The temporary guidelines appear when you create, resize, or move objects in relation to the center or edges of other nearby objects. Plus, the guides interactively connect the centers and the edges of objects.

With projected dimensioning, isometric drawings are easily and efficiently documented

Enhanced! Advanced dimension tools
Display precise measurement values in build plans and more with advanced dimension tools, including radial and diameter dimensioning. With the new projected dimension options, you can easily document projected drawings with precise and dynamic dimension lines and text, eliminating the need to draw and project dimension objects in multiple steps.

Choose from included hatch fill libraries or create custom vector hatch fills for precise representations of cross-section planes, materials and more

Enhanced! Hatch fills for accurate cross sections
Apply a hatch fill to areas of your illustrations to represent certain materials or sectional views. Choose from included hatch fill libraries or create custom vector hatch fills for precise representations of cross-section planes, materials, and more. Hatch fills in CAD files are preserved when imported into Corel DESIGNER X6.

Streamlined graphical transformations

Enhanced! Streamlined graphical transformations
Use the enhanced Transformations docker to apply precise transformations quickly. Move, copy, rotate, resize or scale, mirror and project graphical objects using precise coordinates, with support for onscreen selection or measurement and application of the changes on the fly.

Maintain style and consistency

Apply a consistent look throughout your projects with Object and Color Styles

New! Revised styles engine and docker
The new Object Styles docker simplifies the creation, application, and management of styles for graphical shapes, including symbols, callouts and dimensioning. Take advantage of Style Sets to apply consistent formatting across multiple objects, produce iterative versions, and implement formatting with speed and consistency.

Use halos with connector lines to make diagrams easier to read

Enhanced! Halos on curves applied as a style
Halos help ensure your illustrations are easily interpreted and understood. Apply halos to connector lines that cross over each other to make wiring diagrams and flowcharts easier to read, or use halos to highlight the axes of an exploded view with thrust lines. With the new Object Styles docker, you can save halos as part of a preset line style, making it easy to reuse them throughout complex projects.

Instantly add page numbers on all pages of a document

New! Page numbering
Instantly add page numbers on all pages of a document, starting on a specific page, or starting with a particular number. The numbers are automatically updated when you add or delete pages in your document. This flexibility is ideal when working with multiple files that will eventually become a single publication.

Publish to technical communications standards

Create, share and deliver industry standard compliant technical documentation

Enhanced! File format support and industry standard compliance
Create, share and deliver standardized technical documentation with support for over 100 leading formats, including AutoCAD DWG and DXF, Microsoft Visio (VSD), WebCGM & S1000D, Microsoft Publisher 2010, SVG, DOCX, EPS, TIFF, PDF and more. CorelDRAW Technical Suite X6 also offers enhanced support for Adobe products, including Adobe CS6 (PSD, AI) and Adobe Acrobat X.

Publishing to SVG can be fully automated as a background task

New! Automated SVG export
Corel DESIGNER X6 can publish SVG, the HTML 5 supported vector graphics file format for online publication of scalable graphics. New with Corel DESIGNER X6, publishing to SVG can be fully automated as a background task, enabling advanced integration with Technical Authoring systems and any Content Management System.

A new overhauled text engine offers built-in complex script support

New! Complex script support
A new overhauled text engine offers built-in complex script support to ensure proper typesetting for glyphs used by Asian and Middle Eastern languages. This is particularly useful for multilingual technical documentation and localized technical illustrations with text.

Increase performance, speed and efficiency

Native 64-bit application support

New! Multi-core processor and native 64-bit support
Enjoy the speed of multi-core processing power and true native 64-bit Windows 7 and Windows 8 applications. The enhanced speed allows you to quickly process larger files and images. Plus, your system will be more responsive when running several applications simultaneously.

Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Applications allows you to create macros and add-ins

New! Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications 7.1
Create macros and add-ins by leveraging Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Applications from CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6. You can also leverage the native 64-bit support for Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications to perform simple customization tasks. Easily create connections to Content Management Systems (CMS), Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Product Data Management (PDM) Systems.

Apply hotspots to entire callouts for interactive electronic technical manual (IETM) publication

New! Interactive callouts
Callouts are commonly used as hotspots that link to additional data. Now you can apply hotspots manually to complete callout objects—including leader line, text and surrounding halo—to make the entire callout interactive. This capability is particularly handy when publishing your projects to CGM or SVG.
