    One major reason to buy is to get a version that works.  Vx8 SUCKS!! and crashes all the time as well as corrupt files.  When Vx8 WAS working, I quickly had to resave as x7 format: the only thing that saved my ass.  V 2017 seems to work great, BUT…  Like nearly all recent versions, CorelDraw continues to choke and WILL NOT PRINT on legal paper; it works sometimes on tabloid paper.  The only workable solution is to print to PDF and print from that.
