HASH(0xb68cb5f4) out of 5 stars Worth fifty bucks Dec 28 2012
By rickreview - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM Verified Purchase
I bought this at a Black Friday price of $50 and I'd say it's worth that. But, had I paid the regular price of $130, I'd be disappointed. Yes, Corel has a legitimate need to discourage unscrupulous customers from buying the home version and using it professionally so, I understand their removing features which are important to pros, like Prepress. But, Corel doesn't stop there. They cripple the Home version in what seems like a thousand ways.

I'll give just one example that really irritates me. With the full version, you can enlarge the tool icons and the menu fonts but, Corel killed that feature on the Home version. That's just seems petty to me, especially since the tiny defaults (and they are tiny) are probably more of a problem for retired hobbyists like me than for young working professionals.

It doesn't stop there, though. Lots of features are removed or crippled on the Home version. You keep discovering more and more as you learn the program. There's the same note at the end of each section of Help that points out that some features are missing in the Home version but, it doesn't tell you which ones. In many cases, you have to experiment to find out. How much trouble would it have been to tell you which features had been crippled?

Still, x6 has some cool new shape modifying tools that are a lot fun to play around with. If you buy the Home version, though, be prepared to be annoyed often as you get familiar with it.

HASH(0xb672c318) out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THE HOME AND STUDENT VERSION! Jan. 19 2013
By VR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM
I have used Corel Draw for Years ... professionally, but not so professionally anymore - so I got the home & student version thinking it would be the same, just for home use. It is NOT the same as the regular X6 version - they have purposefully restricted many nice and helpful features - for example, you cannot customize toolbars!! seriously?? That is SOOO annoying and not even called for. Who knows how many other basic useful features they've disable! I am throwing this version in the trash!

HASH(0xb673103c) out of 5 stars Almost but not quite Nov. 1 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM Verified Purchase
While the home and student version of Corel does a lot, it fails to have the same type capability to customize the work space as the full version does. One very exasperating thing about it is that you can not change the fact that the program treats all areas as filled even when it is not. This can be corrected in the full version by searching in the set-up section but can not be corrected in the home and student version. This is a major drawback to this version.

HASH(0xb672cd5c) out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, but Corel's description of what is missing is far from complete Feb. 6 2013

I purchased this because I am an experienced user of the suite, particularly Photopaint. Because I am not working at present, and wanted something to maintain my skills as well as to do some personal projects that I have been postponing for some time, I checked on the Corel website to learn the difference between this package and the far more expensive professional version.

From their website: "From a feature-set perspective, you get almost complete versions of CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT in the box. The biggest difference compared to CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 are that Home & Student Suite X6 does not include VBA / VSTA or Macro support, and some more advanced features a professional user would need are not available (such as PrePress, PreFlight, specific file formats such as CGM, advanced OpenType features, or color management options). Finally, the Home & Student version is not eligible for our Memberships offering, has reduced the amount of content on the disc and the printed Hard-cover book from Graphics Suite is not included (it is included in electronic format)." [The link I initially inserted here was edited out, but if you search the Corel website using the search phrase,"difference between coreldraw education and standard" you should be able to find and read the source of the quote.]

In fact, a number of very other useful features have been removed or crippled. One that is very handy for the less experienced user is Print Preview, which formerly allowed you to select what part of the image you printed out interactively. It also rendered images in a manner that more closely represented the printed sheet than the rather crude "preview" that is now presented when the print command is invoked. (It was even better than the "working screen" in this regard.)

Also, the brush selection has been scaled back, and other many useful tools such as Import are not available (grayed-out).

Now, I realize that this was done because they did not want to sell a program with the same capabilities for such a reduced price, and the program probably is well worth what they are charging. My issue is that they were not as transparent about what is and what is not included in the package. They have comparison charts comparing the features of the various versions (X3, X4, X5, etc.) and they should have the same for this.

I will keep the program, but I am less happy with Corel than I was in the past. Would I have bought it had I known all this? Probably not, but my needs may be more demanding than yours and I am spoiled by using the full-featured---although older--versions for years.

In summary, this is a nice program with may good features, but beware of looking at the description of the standard CorelDraw Suite and subtracting the features enumerated in the description provided by Corel. You will get much less. Apparently, the previous version actually did have all of the features minus the color separation (which relatively few home users would ever need, but pros would,) CGM, books, etc. I think I would trade my copy for it, even though it does not have some of the advances that attracted me to X6 in the first place. But if X6 Student Version meets your needs, keeping this in mind, I would recommend that you give it serious consideration. Limited as it is, it is still a good program.

HASH(0xb670915c) out of 5 stars No 64 bit support in Home and Student version. WHY? March 4 2013
By Danny S McClurg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM Verified Purchase
CorelDraw Home and Student version is a good product. I'm disappointed in the way that Corel didn't specify that it was only a 32 bit version only with no 64 bit support. If I had known that it was only 32 bit I would have purchased a different version. The Trail version that you can down load and test drive supports both 32 and 64 bit.
