professionals
Technical graphics users
These users often have formal training in a technical
tasks and include knowledge workers in medium to
or graphics field, such as technical illustration or
technical writing. They work in discrete manufacturing,
automotive, aerospace, high tech and
telecommunications, architecture, engineering and
construction (AEC), and apparel industries.
The graphics created by technical illustrators are used
in assembly instructions, user guides, illustrated parts
catalogs (IPCs), maintenance manuals, schematics, or
wiring diagrams. These documents are output to
various media, such as print, the web, mobile devices,
and interactive electronic technical manuals (IETMs).
Technical communication professionals in today’s
global markets need to create technical publications in
multiple languages for a worldwide customer base.
The ability to work seamlessly with Translation
Memory Systems (TMS) used in the localization
workflow is critical to streamline processes.
In addition, many organizations rely on content
authoring and management systems, so they seek
solutions that can be easily integrated.
These users are often self-taught in graphic-creation
large enterprise environments, such as manufacturing,
automotive, telecommunication, pharmaceuticals,
chemicals, and energy industries.
Among their many tasks and responsibilities is the
need to create a variety of graphics, including
diagrams used in presentation materials, floor plans,
schematics, and marketing materials.
These users may create graphics from scratch or base
them on legacy files. They often work collaboratively,
and the graphics they create may later be imported
for reuse with office-productivity, diagramming, and
desktop-publishing software.
In a typical organization, there may be many technical
graphics users spread across several departments.
They are not generally required to use the software
daily, and as such, they do not often get opportunities
for extensive training.
Organizations require cost-effective and easy-to-use
solutions that enable their users to repurpose legacy
files and 2D CAD data — and eventually 3D CAD data.
They also need tools for creating basic technical
diagrams and publishing standardized outputs.

Productivity
Technical communication professionals are always
seeking new ways to streamline their workflow and
work faster. CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017 offers a
wide array of time-saving new and enhanced features.
You can customize your workspace to suit the way you
work, take advantage of Ultra HD and multi-monitor
support, create illustrations with localized text for a
global market, and more.
Enhanced! TMS support: The creation of technical
documentation for a global market and the reduction
of localization costs offered by a Translation Memory
System (TMS) has been enhanced. Now when
exporting text in a drawing to the XML Localization
Interchange file format (XLIFF) — the industrystandard format for sharing translatable text between
a TMS and software — recognition of the source
language has been improved in Corel DESIGNER 2017.
In addition, the translated text you receive back now
always respects the original formatting. This lets you
create a language-specific file with identical content
and formatting, except the translated text strings.
Alternatively, a new option for importing translated
text into copied text objects on a separate layer allows
for the creation of multi-lingual documents with
language-specific layers, which can be turned on and
off as needed.

New! Advanced multi-monitor support: Per-Monitor
UI scaling and improvements to multi-monitor
support allow technical graphics professionals to take
advantage of the sharpness and fidelity of new HighDPI monitors and laptops while still using lower-DPI
monitors to maximize design space (requires
supported hardware and Windows 8.1 or later). This
ensures that UI elements scale properly and appear
crisp and legible on screens of all resolutions. For
example, you can drag a document out of the

Capture design concepts using hand-drawn vector curves.
The LiveSketch tool lets you capture design concepts
using hand-drawn vector curves. If you’ve ever used a
scanned sketch as the basis for a project, you’ll quickly
see the time-saving possibilities that the LiveSketch
tool offers. Not only does it eliminate the need to scan
and trace a drawing, but it also gives you total control
over how your strokes are adjusted and converted to
curves. Intuitive settings let you easily fine-tune how

If you want to extend an existing curve, simply hover
over it until it turns red and continue to sketch. The
subsequent stroke is seamlessly added to the existing

the resulting curve inherits the properties of the
existing curve.
Regardless of your sketching experience, you'll be
amazed how quickly you can produce impressive results.

Corel Font Manager: When the number of fonts on
your system become less of a benefit and more of a
hassle, Corel Font Manager is the answer. It lets you

glyph sets, add custom font collections, and more.
When you add folders and create collections, all your
fonts, including ones that aren’t installed, become
accessible from the Font list box in Corel DESIGNER,
CorelDRAW, and Corel PHOTO-PAINT. This means
that you can use fonts that are not installed in your
drawings and documents. In addition, any collections
that you create appear as font filters in the Font list

The Gaussian Blur special effect is now available as a
lens, so you can blur images without overwriting the

make are non-destructive, so any edits are displayed on
the screen through the lens rather than applied to the
image pixels. The lens is created as a separate object on
a layer above the image background so you can edit the
lens and the background image separately, maintaining
the original’s data and quality.

industry, enabling data to be compressed to an
average 0.5% of its original size with high accuracy.
For example, a 500 MB 3D CAD assembly file can be
shared on mobile devices as an XVL file with an
approximate file size of 2.5 MB.
3D outputs: With Lattice3D Studio CAD Corel
