CorelDraw Graphics Suite 2019 released

Corel has announced the lastest version of its CorelDraw Graphics Suite 2019 complete with a new native version for MacOs as well as a new Windows version to celebrate the 30th anniversary of CorelDraw.

Corel has finally released a native Mac version of its CorelDraw Graphics Suite 2019, complete with support for macOS Mojave Dark Mode and Touch Bar on MacBook Pro.

Gérard Métrailler, executive vice-president of Global Products at Corel, commented: “With our recent Parallels acquisition and now the all-new CorelDRAW Graphics Suite for Mac, we’ve solidified Corel’s position as a provider of exceptional software that meets the needs of modern knowledge workers across specialties, skill levels, and platforms.”

The new Mac version supports the usual Mac menus, windows and so on, as well as Mojave’s Dark Mode and the Touch Bar on MacBook Pro. It includes all the vector graphic design, illustration, and page layout that you would expect from CorelDraw. It also includes Corel PhotoPaint for photo editing, AfterShot 3 HDR for processing RAW files and Corel Font Manager  for organizing font libraries. There’s also LiveSketch, which Corel claims is the industry’s first vector graphic design tool powered by a neural network and can improve sketching with a pen-enabled device. 

The Windows version comes with a number of new features, including a redesigned Objects Docker to give users direct control over the structure of a document and easier access to its components. Users can also apply a number of non-destructive effects to vector and bitmap graphics, such as textures and colours, available from the new Effects tab in the Properties docker. There’s also a new Align to Pixel Grid button to ensure that graphics have clean borders. 

Corel also says that it has improved the overall performance, tidied up the navigation and introduced new templates. Corel has also improved support for the different PDF/X options.

Corel still offers users a choice of a one-off perpetual charge of £599.99 or €699, or a subscription license at £199.99 or €239.40 per year.

There’s also a new CorelDRAW.app for working with mobile devices, which is included with both versions. This can be used to create new projects as well as showing off existing work and annotating it. Additional features can be added to the app with a subscription.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
