CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite 2017 is the latest version of Corel's flagship graphics software that offers designers a new, hands-on creative experience that's “unlike any other” vector application. With LiveSketch™, hand-drawn strokes are intelligently interpreted, adjusted, and combined with existing vector curves, making it simple to sketch and draw directly on a pen-enabled device. This graphics solution is built specifically for Windows, and offers new work flow enhancements, plus support for the latest technologies such as advanced stylus and touch-enabled devices, the Microsoft Surface Dial, and Ultra HD 5K monitors.
"Right from the start, vector design software has forced artists to work in a world dominated by mathematics. When you train yourself to think in terms of geometric shapes, polylines, and Bezier curves, the design process can feel removed from where your creativity began; the simple joy of drawing," says Gérard Métrailler, Vice President of Global Products at Corel.
New LiveSketch™ tool: LiveSketch uses the power of a neural network to understand and deliver a natural vector drawing experience that replicates the feel of pen and paper. For the first time, users can free-form sketch vector curves directly on a pen-enabled device, thanks to an intelligent tool that interprets and understands sketching styles, such as overlapping strokes, folded lines, and even chicken scratches. LiveSketch also eliminates the time-consuming task of sketching on paper, scanning, and tracing to vector by enabling you to start your designs directly on screen.
Enhanced nodes, handles and vector preview: Each node type is assigned a unique shape, so you can quickly identify cusp, smooth, and symmetrical nodes. Vector previews for nodes and curves have been enhanced to stand out against background colours in your design.
Powerful stylus enhancements: Enjoy a more natural drawing experience with native support for the Surface Studio, Surface Pen, and Surface Dial, plus advanced support for Wacom styluses and tablets.
Import legacy workspaces: Bring your earlier environments directly into the new CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017 and continue designing right where you left off. Reuse CorelDRAW and Corel® PHOTO-PAINT® workspaces that were created in versions X6, X7, and X8.
