OTTAWA, June 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2020 is the latest edition of Corel’s comprehensive suite for specialized technical illustration and visual documentation. Featuring access to all-new collaboration capabilities, enhanced isometric drawing tools and callout handling, as well as significant performance gains, CorelDRAW® Technical Suite 2020 enables technical illustrators to accelerate their workflow with precision and control.

The CorelDRAW 2020 lineup now includes four unique products to meet the needs of a wide range of graphics software users. Hobbyist and home business users can choose from the recently debuted CorelDRAW Essentials and CorelDRAW Standard for affordable and accessible DIY design options. Graphics professionals and businesses can take advantage of the flexibility CorelDRAW Graphics Suite to create stunning designs and produce a variety of flawless output. Customers in technical industries can depend on CorelDRAW Technical Suite to design specialized illustrations that are ideal for documentation, training, and more.

“2020 is a landmark year for CorelDRAW as we expand our product line to meet a broad spectrum of design needs – from casual users to professional graphics creators,” said Klaus Vossen, Senior Product Manager, CorelDRAW. “By extending the power of CorelDRAW 2020 to the technical documentation workflow, we’re giving illustrators access to new tools and collaboration to produce intricate graphics and virtually any kind of visual communication in record time.”

Ideal for engineering, architecture, and manufacturing, CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2020 offers exceptional control and precision for flawless technical documentation and design.

Work faster with new Thick and thin lines and an improved styles workflow
Boost productivity when working with lines, halos, and styles. A big time-saver for technical illustrators, new Thick and thin line drawing mode automatically adjusts line weights on objects including curves, rectangles, and ellipses. Easily add depth to an isometric drawing by applying two line weights at once. For seamless scaling, lock the ratio between the outline width and halo width when adding halos to lines.

Make the most of enhanced callout handling
Enjoy several optimizations in callout handling for technical drawings and illustrations. Save time with the new Legless Callout tool, callout scaling options, and object information attached to symbols. Automatically apply hotspots and object information on callouts as they’re drawn.

Fast-track the feedback and approval process with seamless collaboration tools
Connecting with clients and colleagues has never been easier, thanks to new collaboration tools that simplify the entire review and approval workflow. Share concepts with reviewers using CorelDRAW.app™, inviting them to view, annotate, and comment directly on CorelDRAW and Corel DESIGNER™ files.

Experience faster performance and AI-powered features
Work more efficiently with a noticeably more responsive suite of applications. Leverage new tools in Corel DESIGNER 2020 that make a timesaving impact on the overall design experience, including the new Wrap feature that makes it simple to precisely wrap an object around a cylinder. When creating S1000D-compliant illustrations, a new symbol library makes the process faster and easier than before. Plus, when working in either Corel DESIGNER or CorelDRAW, leverage the latest in artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance productivity with AI-powered image upsampling, JPEG artifact removal, and next-level bitmap-to-vector trace results now available in Corel PowerTRACE™.

Take advantage of improved 3D repurposing with XVL Studio Corel Edition
When leveraging 3D designs from existing sources, benefit from a number of updates to XVL Studio Corel Edition, including a simplified object structure for imported 3D views in Corel DESIGNER, preserved object metadata, such as part numbers, and an optimized snapshots workflow for storing 3D views.
