CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2020 - Update 1 Release Notes

Update 1

Update 1 includes fixes for a number of customer-reported and other issues.


  • A Corel account sign-in issue that prevents some users from accessing Corel Cloud features has been fixed.
  • The Reduce Nodes feature works fast on multiple selected objects.
  • Disabling the Treat all objects as filled check box on the Pick tool page of the Options dialog box (Tools > Options > Tools) no longer deletes imported object data.
  • Drawing callouts with the Create CGM Hotspot and Interactive features enabled creates the Name object data.
  • You can now create a callout that contains object data on an object in a nested group.
  • Callouts in files saved to version 2019 or earlier are now properly displayed in Corel DESIGNER 2020.
  • The Vertical and Horizontal controls in the Transform docker work as expected.
  • The option Scale text with leader line on the Callouts page of the Options dialog box (Tools > Options > Tools) is respected for callouts that contain object data.
  • Symbols imported from earlier versions of Corel DESIGNER are recognized as their object types when reverted to objects.
  • All applications included in CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2020 are now accessible from the Windows Start menu.

XVL Studio Corel Edition and XVL Studio 3D CAD Corel Edition

  • XVL Studio matches the language of the operating system if the language is supported by Corel DESIGNER 2020.
  • Sending a snapshot to Corel DESIGNER from XVL Studio when the wrapper is active no longer generates a PowerClip curve with a frame. To take advantage of this fix, you must first turn it on by editing the Windows Registry as shown below.
    • [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Corel\Corel DESIGNER\22.0\Designer\Application Preferences\SVG Import] "ClipIsPowerClip"="0"
    • If SVG Import is unavailable, you must create it, naming it SVG Import (with a space between SVG and Import). Add ClipIsPowerClip as the preference name, with a value of 0.
  • Files sent from XVL Studio 3D CAD Corel Edition, with the Outline option turned on, now appear intact, without any missing elements, in Corel DESIGNER.
  • Sending multiple snapshots from XVL Studio no longer results in sections being cut off.
  • A snapshot sent to Corel DESIGNER no longer changes its position after the snapshot is updated in XVL Studio.
