Explore, handle and organize fonts with the new Corel Font Manager to satisfy all your typeface needs. Manage your typeface and font collections with ease, and use fonts without having to install them. We've got you covered for every profession that uses fonts daily, from graphic design, publishing and illustration, to package design, sign making, advertising and website design.

Enhanced - Font filtering and search
Save valuable design time with the enhanced font filtering feature. Quickly find the specific font you need without spending time searching in multiple folders. For example, if you're looking for a typeface that has a handwritten appearance, you can do a quick search for “script fonts.' The font list will automatically update to show all the fonts on your machine that match that search.

NEW! - Show Objects
You asked for it, and we listened! Take advantage of the new important design features that we created based on feedback from CorelDRAW users. Manage complex projects with ease by using the new Hide and Show Objects feature that lets you hide individual objects or groups of objects on a layer without hiding the entire layer.

NEW! - Gaussian Blur feature

Enhanced - Knife Tool
With the revamped Knife tool in CorelDRAW, split any object or group of objects - vector, text and bitmaps – along straight, freehand or Bézier lines. Create a gap between the new objects resulting from the splitting action or overlap them. Choose an outline option, or let the application automatically select the option that best preserves the outline appearance.
