Overall great product but they miss key areas... March 28 2008
By C. Grove - Published on Amazon.com

I come from the sign industry and a lot of sign shops use CorelDRAW. However, it would be NICE if Corel realized that they have such a following in that niche and would optimize DRAW for vinyl cutting. Phew! I've always wanted to get that off my chest.

Having said that it was worthwhile upgrading from version 12. I'm not sure that upgrading from X3 would have been worthwhile.

CorelDRAW's interface, particularly in editing bezier curves, has always made it my choice. I used Illustrator every single day at work but I have yet to figure out curve editing on it. :-P

Corel still does not match Adobe in the colour management area. They need to take this a little more seriously!

Corel needs to stop buying up companies and trying to market their products. Why did they buy Paintshop? They should have just continued to update Photopaint. Paintshop is just a drag on their developement resources and takes their programing team away from their core products.

Also, Corel is not taking website design integration seriously. They need something to compete with Dreamweaver. "Get with it guys! It is not just a print world anymore!" Also, why the devil did they stop developement of RAVE??? It disappeared a couple incarnations ago and doesn't look like it'll return.

Having said all that CorelDRAW X4 is a great vector illustration program and I can still do professional raster image editing with Photopaint. Their bitmap to vector tracing module can't be beat. All for much less than Adobe products.

Some nice improvements, but buggy as always May 19 2008
By Mark Luebker - Published on Amazon.com

I've been using the CorelDRAW suite since version 2, so I like the product. But I get tired of new versions being so buggy--I sometimes find myself feeling more like a beta tester than a customer when I upgrade. While this version is supposedly optimized for Vista, it locks up for no apparent reason from time to time and sends me running back to version 12 in order to get things done. Still, if you're a Corel fan like me and you want compatibility with the latest files from Adobe CS3, this is where you need to be.

Since I upgraded from version 12 and skipped X3, I'm not sure whether some of the changes to the symbols used on the toolbar icons are new this time or were last time, but I'd have preferred to continue with the familiar ones and don't see an option that would allow me to do so. Ditto for the new arrow-like appearance of the nodes in DRAW.

I like the new option for straightening scans, but with Adobe Acrobat able to do that automatically (when it performs OCR), I'm surprised Corel hasn't found a way to do the same.

Overall, I still prefer Corel to Adobe's suite--it's a more intuitive interface and I can do pretty much the same stuff, often faster than my colleagues who use the Adobe suite--but it always irks me that it takes a couple of fixes and revisions to achieve stability whenever I upgrade.

Works with Vista Aug. 14 2008
By M. Silverstone - Published on Amazon.com
I have been a user of Corel for many years. I've appreciated the product and was disappointed that the version I had been using could not work on my Vista machine. So, I upgraded and have been happy with the new version of the product too.

An excellent program suite June 13 2008
By Nagesh Sagar - Published on Amazon.com
CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 [DVD]

A highly under-rated program given its capabilities, ease of use... it is no less than Adobe's industry leading programs like Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign... it has the combined capabilities of all three and yet shines over them with not so insignificant free add-ons like a myriad of filters for importing and exporting various formats, bar-code generator, a large library of fonts and clip-art, etc., which in the case of Adobe need serious money to make them as complete as CorelDraw. I use all of them, but the comfort level and efficiencies offered by CorelDraw are unequalled. I can never figure out why CorelDraw never made it to becoming an industry standard.

Too late to get a refund now July 30 2009
By Jack - Published on Amazon.com
The place I work at recently got the upgrade in the hopes of improving the graphic design process.

While it remains easy enough to use, a number of critical issues have arisen. The "TABLES" feature, which we needed to simplify the creation of many documents barely works and is missing key features we needed. The "EXPORT" command does not work very well in creating files that other, non-Corel programs can use. It does not like to open up old files from the previous version of Corel, and font substitution in those older files is a chronic problem, even though the actual fonts are on the machine.

We have returned to the previous version of Corel for our production work, and I do not plan on upgrading any Corel product if I can help it.

Now if only we could get a refund for this one.
