    Corel DESIGNER

    Corel DESIGNER is a vector based graphics program which is very popular for precise technical drawing and illustration, including for example technical diagrams and engineering drawings, but which can also be used for creative illustration.

    At the time of writing, the latest version of Corel DESIGNER is Corel DESIGNER Technical Suite X5 which is a package of several graphics applications, including Corel DESIGNER itself, Corel PowerTRACE, Right Hemisphere Deep Exploration 6 CSE, plus almost everything (everything?) in CorelDRAW Graphics Suite as well.

    The main programs in Corel DESIGNER Technical Suite X5 are:
    1. Corel DESIGNER

      As already mentioned is vector-based drawing and illustration software, which is orientated to precise drawings such as technical diagrams and engineering drawings.

    2. CorelDRAW

      CorelDRAW is a vector-based drawing and drawing and illustration software. Although vector-based bitmaps can be placed within drawings and manipulated using the program's integration with Corel PhotoPaint.

      Unlike some other drawing/illustration programs, CorelDRAW works well with multipage documents, and even includes a print-merge feature, which is useful for producing a series of personalized/customized documents such as uniquely numbered membership cards, invitations with the recipient's name on them, or numbered raffle tickets, etc.

      Note: The key difference between Corel DESIGNER and CorelDRAW is that Corel DESIGNER tends to be orientated towards precise technical drawing and illustration, whereas CorelDRAW tends to orientated towards creative illustration.

    3. Corel PhotoPaint

      Corel PhotoPaint is a very powerful bitmap based photo editing software. It includes tools for both manipulating photos, and for drawing new graphics, and like other high-end photo editing software supports a layer-based approach to editing. The program includes many effects, supports plug-ins that add functionality (including plug-ins originally developed for Adobe Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro), and is generally regarded as comparable in power to Adobe Photoshop.

    Some of the other items in Corel DESIGNER Technical Suite X5 include:
    • Corel PowerTRACE - A tool for converting bitmaps to vectors (vectorisation).

    • Right Hemisphere Deep Exploration 6 CSE - 3D visualization software that transforms 3D CAD models into 2D graphics (both vector graphics which can be brought into Corel DESIGNER, and rendered bitmap graphics which be brought into Corel PhotoPaint.

    • Corel CAPTURE - A program for making screenshots.

      This is a very useful program, especially for technical authors. It makes it very quick and easy to take screenshots, including images of individual windows, dropdown menus, areas of the screen (including non-rectangular areas), etc.

    Designer software at the CAD end of vector drawing has undergone a number of changes during its long life. The latest evolution is the recent move into the Corel fold. A vector graphics program like Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW, Designer was created as much for draftspeople as for graphic artists. Its original market was technical illustrators who wanted a more flexible tool than a drafting application such as AutoCAD, but also wanted many of that heavyweight's technical aids.

    Although it has all the main tools you would expect from a drawing program, Designer offers much more control than anticipated over how these drawing elements are positioned. You can, for example, choose to draw polygons from the side, corner, or center, and you can use the Dynamic Snap function to easily draw concentric shapes, such as gears within gears. Dimensioning is a strong point of the program, too, so you can accurately mark lengths of objects and tie dimensions to them. The figures then change when you resize the dimension lines.

    Corel Designer 9 is not as major an upgrade from Designer 8 as version 8 was from 7. The main feature that has been improved is import and export compatibility. In version 9 you can import AutoCAD 2000 drawings and export them to both Macromedia Flash and Adobe PDF formats. Finally, Designer 9 comes bundled with Picture Publisher 9, in much the same way that CorelDRAW includes Corel PhotoPaint. Picture Publisher is a top-rate bitmap photo editor, with most of the functions you will need for even professional graphics work. Together they make a compelling package for any technical illustrator who also deals with images. --Simon Williams
