In 2017, just a year after introducing CorelDRAW X8, we disbanded the X series and entered a new era with CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017.
For CorelDRAW, it meant more than a regular upgrade. We revamped all the existing features and with new additions like the LiveSketch tool, it became an industry-leading graphics application.
The LiveSketch tool revolutionized the designing process where someone could express their work directly on the screen using a stylus pen. Striding from the conventional paper-based sketching and importing those sketches via scanning, we provided the designers with a better and efficient way to capture their imaginations. Powered by Artificial Intelligence, LiveSketch could detect designer’s intentions early and help them accurately draw their design. Without any waste of paper and valuable time, drawing vector curves became child's play.
In tablet mode designers had the freedom to work from anywhere and perform instant modifications. With a user-friendly interface combined with enhanced previews, nodes, and handles, the usability of CorelDRAW increased significantly. Importing workspaces from previous editions of CorelDRAW and CorelPHOTO-PAINT, made the transition smoother for long term Corel users.
The upgraded version of Font Manager utility bundled with the suite functioned as a medium for accessing cool font packs, extensions, and plugins on all the core applications.
