CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite 2023 Update 2 delivers enhancements to several areas within the applications:
A range of enhancements to the Export docker (Windows) or Export inspector (macOS) make it easier than ever to output objects and pages to even more file formats, now including CDR, WEBP, CGM, PSD, and BMP.
CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2023 Update 2 introduces a range of features and enhancements to the Assets docker (Windows) or Assets inspector (macOS) to improve your workflow. In response to user feedback, the redesigned docker/inspector incorporates a tree folder structure, providing a familiar and intuitive method for browsing files. It allows you to view folder hierarchy, navigate through folders, and locate content within the broader context of your files.
We have streamlined the user interface to enhance accessibility and convenience. Sorting options are now located in a drop-down list at your fingertips. Plus, progress bars appear during the loading and synchronization of content, providing visual feedback on the status of these tasks while you work uninterrupted in the app. Performance improvements deliver faster syncing, filtering, and searching of content.
Introducing a range of user-inspired enhancements, the Print Merge feature offers increased versatility and ease of use.
Expanding the range of compatible file types, CorelDRAW now provides support for Excel Workbook (XLSX) data source files.
Another essential feature is the ability to synchronize a linked file with its source and incorporate the latest changes. Furthermore, alongside importing a data source file, you can now selectively import data from columns, which makes it easier to combine data from diverse sources, expanding your possibilities.
Enhanced PDF import capabilities, such as improved text flow, enhanced text editability, accurate recognition of language order, retention of OpenType features and stylistic sets, and preservation of formatting and column layout, ensure a fast and seamless transition of your PDF content into CorelDRAW. Paragraphs are intelligently converted into Artistic and Paragraph text objects based on line length and spacial proximity, ensuring an accurate representation of the original text structure and organization. Paragraph alignment, line spacing, drop caps, superscript and subscript characters, bulleted and numbered lists, and other formatting elements are precisely identified and maintained, preserving the intended visual appeal and integrity of your document. Optimized paragraph handling, accurate recognition of formatting details, and smoother transitions for multi-column layouts streamline your editing workflow, making it easier and more efficient to work with imported PDF content.
The update removes the previously installed GPL Ghostscript 8.64 included with the CorelDRAW product and offers the latest version 10.01.2 as an optional module.
Note: If the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2023 Update 2 has not been applied, it is recommended that you verify the Ghostscript version installed on your system, uninstall any outdated versions of the module, and install version 10.01.2 to address vulnerabilities in Ghostscript 10.01.1 and earlier.
For detailed instructions on updating Ghostscript, see Corel Knowledgebase article: How to uninstall Ghostscript (8.64) or exclude it from the installation of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite/Technical Suite.
CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2023 Update 2 (v24.5) also includes performance and stability fixes for several customer-reported issues.
Update 1 for CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite 2023 delivers enhancements to several areas within the applications:
With the latest update, the Onyx Graphics color palettes are now integrated into CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, allowing you to incorporate these color palettes into your production workflows with ease.
In CorelDRAW, when you import files that have object styles with identical names to those in your drawing, you can now choose from the following options:
If the object styles do not exist in the active drawing, you can discard the styles or add them to the style list. If you often import documents with object styles, enabling the Remember and don’t ask again check box during import can help speed up your workflow and eliminate unnecessary steps.
Update 1 for CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2023 (v24.4) also includes performance and stability fixes for several customer-reported issues.
