Time-saving LiveSketch™ tool
Transform the creativity of free form sketching into precise vector curves directly on a pen-enabled device. Using the innovative LiveSketch tool, your strokes are adjusted and combined with existing vector curves, allowing you to sketch and design on the fly. Best of all, you’ll eliminate the time-consuming task of sketching on paper, scanning and tracing to vector with this revolutionary new tool.
Enhanced nodes, handles and vector preview
Get faster, intuitive node manipulation in CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite 2017 - thanks to redesigned nodes and handles. Now, each node type is assigned a unique shape, so you can quickly identify cusp, smooth, and symmetrical nodes. The vector previews for nodes and curves have been enhanced to stand out against background colors in your design. Interactive sliders for object fills and transparencies have also been enhanced to be more visible.
Touch-friendly user interface
Tablet Mode support makes it easy to sketch on the fly and make quick adjustments using touch or a stylus. The new Touch workspace streamlines the UI to maximize the size of your drawing window by displaying only the tools and commands you're most likely to use. Save time and work faster by panning and zooming in a single gesture. Automatically switch back to the desktop workspace when you re-connect the keyboard, and choose the UI configuration that works best for you in Tablet Mode.
Powerful stylus enhancements
Enjoy more natural drawing experience and achieve more expressive results with the native Surface Studio and Microsoft Dial, and advanced stylus support. A redesigned UI gives instant access to relevant controls and the ability to quickly choose which stylus properties to leverage. CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017 has been enhanced so you can take advantage of pressure, bearing, tilt, and rotation of your stylus to control a variety of tools and effects.
Import legacy workspaces
Bring your earlier environments directly into the new CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017 and continue designing right where you left off. A few simple clicks will allow you to reuse CorelDRAW and Corel® PHOTO-PAINT® workspaces that were created in versions X6, X7, and X8. Now, you have the flexibility of importing select workspace elements into your current workspace, or creating a totally new UI setup.
