Hello carneage; If you have been using ver all these years you got your money's worth. You will like X6 I think and it runs a lot faster and does so much more than ver. I would make sure you get the disk, incase you need to load it again at some time. The new X3 suite comes only with 10k of cliparts! (v.8 had almost 40k). Does ANYONE have any leads where to get good vector (corel or other) cliparts? I've searched ewegut.me, but it seems they do not offer anything. Any owners of v, 11 or 10 out there with an information about clipart CDs that were distributed with those releases? Now i am using CorelDraw for building the brand of my company where i work a lot in graphic and visual for website and social media. CorelDraw is a part of my life i would say, if that doesn't sounds too cheesy. But seriously, CorelDraw has helped me in many aspects such as hobby, career and even financial.

It does what it does, and there is no need to change. However, any pro would not waste their time on this software. A TV station or company that needs to do the same work over and over (weddings?) might do good to use this as they can save a substantial about of money if they have tens or hundreds of workstations.
