Howlsthunder: #coreldraw I've never used CorelDRAW, though now I know it is no longer available for Mac I know why. CorelDRAW was something everyone laughed at in college and is equally poo-pooed in the design circles I know but from what I've read this is not because DRAW isn't a capable application (it is) but because Corel doesn't do much to promote its own software the way Adobe does. Many of its capabilities interest me and are things I wish Illustrator did - anyone have any experience with CorelDRAW? Apr 21, 09
