CorelDRAW.app, CorelDRAW, and Corel Cloud

CorelDRAW.app, a web-based graphics app available exclusively to CorelDRAW Graphics Suite users, is now integrated with CorelDRAW. You can save CDR files created in CorelDRAW.app or CorelDRAW to Corel Cloud, an online storage for files, and then open these files in either one of the applications. For example, you can create a design in CorelDRAW.app, save it as a CDR file to Corel Cloud, and later edit the design in CorelDRAW, taking advantage of its wide array of editing tools. You can save the edited file to Corel Cloud directly from CorelDRAW, and then open and annotate the file in CorelDRAW.app on any device.The annotated file can later be opened in CorelDRAW from Corel Cloud for further editing.

To open a file from Corel Cloud in CorelDRAW, click File > Open from Corel Cloud. To save a file to Corel Cloud, click File > Save to Corel Cloud. The first time you access Corel Cloud from CorelDRAW, you will be prompted to sign in with the password associated with your Corel account. You need to sign in only once a year.

Touch Bar support in Corel PHOTO-PAINT

Corel PHOTO-PAINT lets you take advantage of the Touch Bar, a touchscreen display located above the keyboard on supported MacBook Pro models. When Corel PHOTO-PAINT is active, the controls on the Touch Bar change depending on the selected objects or tools. For example, when you open an image and there are no objects selected, the Touch Bar lets you zoom in and out, access effects, perform common image adjustments, and invoke Full-Screen Preview. When you select objects in the image, the Touch Bar displays controls related to snapping, merge modes, object order, and grouping. When you select a mask tool, the Touch Bar lets you show or hide the mask marquee and mask overlay as well as change the mask mode.
