Why upgrade?

Create beautiful text with advanced OpenType® typography features

New! Advanced OpenType® support
Create beautiful text with advanced OpenType® typography features, such as contextual and stylistic alternates, ligatures, ornaments, small caps, swash variants and more. Ideal for cross-platform design work, OpenType offers comprehensive language support, allowing you to customise characters to suit the language you’re working with. Control all your OpenType options from a centralised menu and make contextual changes with interactive OpenType features.

New! Document styles
Manage styles and colours with ease! The new Object Styles docker centralises style creation and management and includes all the tools you need in one location for faster working. Create and apply Outline, Fill, Paragraph, Character and Text Frame styles to your objects. Group your favourite styles together in Style Sets so you can format many objects at once thus saving time and making sure that consistency is maintained in your design. Use the integrated Default Style Sets to remove the guesswork and get the job done quicker.

New! Custom-built Color Harmonies
Easily create a complementary colour palette for your design. The new Color Harmonies tool, accessed from the Color Styles docker, combines Color Styles into a Harmony, allowing you to modify colours collectively. It also analyses colours and hues to deliver complementary colour schemes - a great way for you to satisfy clients with variety!

Corel® CONNECT™ - Your built-in content finder

New! Multiple trays in Corel® CONNECT™
Instantly find images on your local network and search iStockPhoto®, Fotolia and Flickr® websites. Easily access your content, using the multiple trays now available within Corel® CONNECT™. And organise content by type or project in trays that are shared between CorelDRAW®, Corel® PHOTO-PAINT™ and Corel® CONNECT™ for maximum efficiency.

New! Page layout tools
Reserve a place for text or graphics with the new empty PowerClip frame. Use the new Placeholder Text tool to mock up a page layout and get a good sense of how the text will look. Plus, easily add page numbers with automatic page numbering.

New! Complex script support
Guarantee the proper typesetting and appearance of Asian and Middle Eastern languages. Complex script support acts the same way as OpenType fonts, modifying characters as you type to deliver contextual accuracy. 

New! Website design software
Effortlessly build professional-looking websites, design web pages and manage web content with Corel® Website Creator™ X6. Its Site Wizard, templates, drag-and-drop functionality and seamless integration with XHTML, CSS, JavaScript and XML make website design easy! A Corel account is required to download the application.

Enhanced Speed! Native 64-bit and multi-core support
Enjoy the speed of multi-core processing power and native 64-bit support. The enhanced speed allows you to quickly process larger files and images. Plus, your system will be more responsive when running several applications simultaneously.

Spice up your vector graphics with creative vector shaping tools

New! Creative vector shaping tools
Creatively add effects to your vector artwork! CorelDRAW® X6 introduces four shaping tools that provide new creative options for refining your vector objects. The new Smear tool lets you shape an object by pulling extensions or making indents along its outline. The new Twirl tool lets you apply twirl effects to objects. And you can use the new Attract and Repel tools to shape curves by attracting or separating nodes.

New! Bitmap and vector pattern fills
Now assign transparent backgrounds to vector pattern fills! We’ve introduced a collection of new vector pattern fills, which includes transparent pattern fills for the first time ever, as well as many new bitmap pattern fills.

1.0 out of 5 stars CorelDRAW X6 Upgrade 31 Aug 2012
By Davey J

Hi guys,
I am sure this is a fantastic product. However, you do need X4 or X5 on your computer to use this upgrade which was not made clear when purchasing. Unfortunately I was upgrading from X3 and was only aware of this criteria when I received the packaging with the disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is how it should be done! 11 Aug 2012

I have been using the Corel Suite, Adobe (and Macromedia) products for over 20 years. I'm now using Adobe Master Collection and just upgraded to CorelDraw Suite X6. When I say 'using' most of my time I'm on Corel. It's faster, cheaper, less disk space, simpler interface, easier to use. Infact, the only reason I use Adobe is because it's an 'industry standard', whatever that means. If you want to output .bmp, .jpg, .tiff, .png, .pdf, or any other standard, Corel is really good and is not bad at outputting Adobe files as well. Like all software, some versions have been classics and others worth missing out. X6 looks like a good one so far and I am finding the upgrade well worth while. Now, I'm going to need around a grand to upgrade my Adobe Master Collection ... Nah! Maybe another day!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for my purposes 5 Jan 2013
By Geomac
Verified Purchase
I've been using the CorelDraw suite almost since the first version and I find it excellent for my, somewhat limited, requirements. Mostly I use PhotoPaint for improving poorly scanned seismic sections because, unlike most bitmap editors, many of its functions work with images larger than 30k x 30k pixels. With the support now available for 64 bit Windows my work has speeded up considerably. For that reason alone it is worth the upgrade cost to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars CorelDraw Upgrade to X6 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase
This was a cheap upgrade for my X3 version which was incompatibility with Win 7 & 8. It seems to be a single user edition and has to be registered to get the extras and clear the nag screens. Single user is not a problem for me as the old X3 is still on a Vista PC for some time, and the extra functionality of X6 isn't too significant for what I use it for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth upgrading? In my view Yes 17 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
Having used Corel Draw for more years than I can remember, from version 1, I am quite happy with the upgrade and improvements made

It takes a bit of getting use to too a few of the changes, (I upgraded from X4 to X6) but once I have remembered, I am quite happy with the upgrade.

The only problem I have encountered is with the changes that some fonts want to make to designs that I have saved as templates. Arial seems to give the most problem with making text where all the text is Upper case longer when you update the text

To be frank, I only upgraded because you could now not upgrade from an older version than X4 and I suspect that when X7 is released that you will only be able to upgrade from X5
