After 30 Years, CorelDraw Gets a Mac Version

    Corel just released a Mac version of its well-regarded graphics software suite, along with a web-based version and updates to the Windows program.

    The graphics design software landscape is mostly dominated by Adobe, but CorelDraw also has a good reputation among designers.

    Still, for a staggering 30 years—an eternity in technology—the program has been available on Windows. That all changes today. After three years of development, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite for Mac is now available. True there have been discontinued Mac versions in the past, but those disappeared 15 years ago.

    And that’s not all—a browser-based version of the software,, is launching for on-the-go designs and easy sharing or annotation of your graphics creations. The Windows version benefits from new updates, too.

    Given the creative community’s partiality to using Apple hardware, the Mac version doesn’t come a moment (or a year) too soon. Corel recently purchased the Parallels software, which lets Mac users run Windows software, but that’s no surprise, as the Canadian software firm has a penchant for gobbling up applications. Highlights include Avid Studio, Roxio, Pinnacle Studio, WinZip, and WordPerfect.

    The new Mac version features an OS-native interface, including support for macOS Mojave dark mode and Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro, rather than being a port of the Windows application. It includes the full suite of vector and raster image-editing tools—CorelDRAW for vector graphic design, illustration, and page layout, Corel Photo-Paint for photo editing, Corel Font Manager to index and organize font libraries, and AfterShot for RAW processing.

    New for the Windows version are Objects Docker, Nondestructive edits, Pixel Perfect Workflow for web graphics, new templates, and interface improvements “for easier navigation, greater consistency, and increased productivity.”

    The software is offered in both one-time and subscription pricing models. The perpetual license price remains $499, while a subscription costs $198 per year ($16.50 per month). Upgrading from any previous Windows version is a one-time payment of $199. The CorelDraw 2019 page layout and vector illustration software will also be available as a standalone app with a subscription on the Mac App Store and the Windows app store.
