What's new in CorelDRAW Technical Suite X7?
3D PDF publishing
Publish to 3D PDF with interactive viewing of 3D content in combination with other visual and text elements. Export from Corel DESIGNER® to 3D PDF to generate output with all pertinent data and graphics in one document for cross-media publishing. 3D PDF files can be viewed with free PDF reader applications that are installed on almost any desktop or laptop computer.
Translation Memory System (TMS) support
Reach a worldwide audience with a new option that allows you to send text content from your graphics file in Corel DESIGNER to Translation Memory Systems (TMS) using XLIFF standard, and receive translated content from TMS. The translation results can then be imported into the existing document to create a new file for the specific language. With illustrations instantly available in multiple languages, companies can satisfy their global business needs.
Redesigned customizable user interface
Leverage the option of multiple displays, using one screen for illustration and 3D work, and one for documentation or additional tools. Advanced workspaces offer Lite for beginners, Technical for pros doing isometric illustrations, Diagramming for pros using flowcharts and diagrams, and the Adobe workspace for new Corel DESIGNER users coming from other applications.
Precision layout and drawing tools
Capture your intended drawing shape with exactness using the new Outline Position options that recognize line width measurements for object dimensions. Use the new Alignment Guides so all elements of your technical illustration are intuitively, yet precisely, placed in their intended positions.
Parallel line drawing tool
Speed up the creation of all kinds of technical graphics, from wiring diagrams to architectural designs with the new Parallel Drawing mode in Corel DESIGNER X7. You can simultaneously draw multiple parallel curves while controlling the distance between them. Use the Parallel Drawing toolbar to set the number of parallel curves to create and position them with precision.
Total control over fills and transparency
We've created our most powerful fill engine ever, giving you complete control over your fountain, bitmap pattern, vector pattern and hatch fills. Plus, the new Fill dialog includes access to Content Exchange and fill libraries in Corel DESIGNER.
Drawing scale control
Create your illustrations and diagrams in accurate scale with the drawing scale control. View the active drawing scale, switch to another preset or set a custom scale at any time. In addition, Corel DESIGNER X7 maintains the drawing scale when importing a vector illustration from a 3D model view so that imported views can be placed at a precise scale.
Manage mathematical equations as editable elements within technical illustrations using the newly integrated Equation Editor. Mathematical and scientific formulas can be inserted and displayed in the drawing, and then modified when needed. Existing equations from older CorelDRAW documents can be opened or imported for use in Corel DESIGNER equations.
QR Code generator
Create time-saving QR codes with Corel DESIGNER X7 and add scalable QR codes to a drawing*, allowing you to give technicians in the field the ability to link to online technical documentation from printed documentation or machine labels using a smartphone.
Easy font preview and advanced character tools
Find the perfect font for any project. The new Font Playground lets you preview and experiment with different fonts before bringing them into your design. Plus, the revamped Insert Character docker automatically shows you all the characters, symbols and glyphs associated with your font, making them easier than ever to find and insert.
