Just one year after the release of CorelDRAW X8, designers were hit with a brand new product beyond the X series: CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017.
This was much more than an upgrade to CorelDRAW X8. As well as including all of the intuitive features from the previous version, CorelDRAW 2017 stepped up the ability to design in real-time with LiveSketch.
Moving away from scanning and tracing from paper, the new LiveSketch tool gave designers and artists the ability to capture any original idea instantly using a pen-enabled device. By designing directly in the software, this saved designers valuable time and completely streamlined the process.
Users could sketch on the go, and make quick adjustments to existing designs using a touch screen or a stylus with Tablet Mode support. An improved workspace with enhanced previews, nodes and handles made it easier to edit objects and effects. Users could even import workspaces from CorelDRAW and CorelPHOTO-PAINT that were created in previous versions in order to make the jump to the 2017 version as seamless as possible.
LiveSketch used Artificial Intelligence technology to accurately convey what designers put to screen. No more need for pen and paper, just skip the time-wasting and jump straight into the software to sketch hand-drawn vector curves quickly.
The application also included an upgraded version of the Font Manager and allowed for the use of downloading free and premium plugins, extensions and font packs from directly within the software.
CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017 system requirements:
*Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 do not support variable fonts
**Collaboration features are available only through subscription or with an additional purchase plan for perpetual license customers.
