Senior production manager John Falsetto also announced during the product launch that users of the new Graphic Suite X6 could expect it to operate up to 50% faster than the X5 version.
He told ProPrint that “many of our users work in wide format and grand format” and that sign makers and designers would find the product a good fit.
The X6’s upgraded features include simplified colour management, more typographic options and new tools to allow designers to quickly and easily manipulate shapes, according to Falsetto.
He said CorelDraw’s two-year development process had focused on making the product fast, creative, efficient and content rich.
Although it can’t produce QR Codes, Falsetto said “that’s been flagged as something will be of great value” and may soon be added.
The X6 will support the upcoming Windows 8 and costs $699 for the full version or $299 for anyone upgrading from X4 or X5.
