CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite 2017, the industry's most powerful graphics solution built specifically for Windows, now offers advanced support for Microsoft Surface Dial to give designers a more natural, hands-on approach to vector design and graphics creation. With CorelDRAW 2017, designers and artists can now take advantage of market-leading support for the Surface Dial by downloading a free add-in from directly within the application. New on-screen and off-screen Surface Dial functionality includes enhanced and fully customizable tool controls, time-saving navigation options, and instant access to LiveSketch™ - a revolutionary vector drawing experience that enables free-form sketching, built on the power of a neural network.

"Corel is always looking for new ways to give graphic professionals a powerful and intuitive environment where they can create their best work. With the Microsoft Surface Dial, it was hard to contain our excitement when we saw the incredible opportunity it gave us to re-think the designer's workflow," said Gérard Métrailler, Vice President of Global Products at Corel. "Today, CorelDRAW 2017 and the Surface Dial have come together to dramatically extend your creative power. Discover a fluid design experience where you can intuitively access the tools you need both on and off screen, enabling you to take advantage of your non-dominant hand while you create. Graphic design on a computer has never been this hands-on, natural, and enjoyable."

"We design Surface to help people bring their ideas to life," said Jamie Cannon, Director of Surface Product Marketing at Microsoft. "That magic happens when hardware and software come together to fuel new experiences. The latest release of CorelDRAW is a great example, unlocking creativity for modern graphic designers with new Surface Dial integration."
