Tools for high-impact visual communication
From manufacturing and engineering to architecture and high tech, we’ve got you covered with timesaving illustration features and game-changing tools to help reach new levels of productivity.
Axonometric drawing tools - Create isometric or other parallel projected technical illustrations for assembly and maintenance instructions by dynamically drawing on a projected plane. Project your existing planar objects to a desired plane in lieu of manual calculations.
Advanced dimension tools - Eliminate the need to draw and project dimension objects in multiple steps thanks to the dimension tools. Display precise measurement values in building plans and more. Add context with projected arrows in dimensions and leader lines.
Streamlined callout creation - Track essential design details and have Callouts dynamically update and change when based on object metadata. Connect or "stick" to source objects as they are modified with Sticky callouts. The Legless Callouts are perfect to add when a callout doesn’t need a leader line
Drawing scale control - Create illustrations and diagrams to scale with the drawing scale control. View the active drawing scale, switch to another preset, or set a custom scale. Corel DESIGNER retains the drawing scale when importing a vector illustration from a 3D model view so imported views are placed at scale.
Hotspot capabilities - Add interactive functions to callout shapes in technical publications with the callout drawing tool in Corel DESIGNER. Draw and attach callouts to nested groups by automatically applying hotspots and object information on callouts, saving you time
Wrap objects around cylinders - The Wrap tool makes it quick and easy to precisely wrap an object around a cylinder or ellipse, like adding a label to a bottle
Object Styles and presets - Ensure a consistent look, style, and layout throughout your design projects with Object Styles, Color Styles and Color Harmonies. Explore preloaded Style Sets that follow S1000D technical illustration standards, complete with quick keys for a faster workflow.
Equation Editor - Manage mathematical equations as editable elements using the integrated Equation Editor. Mathematical and scientific formulas can be inserted and displayed in the drawing, and then modified as needed. Existing equations from older CorelDRAW documents can be opened or imported for use in Corel DESIGNER equations.
Straighten and adjust photos interactively - Rotate crooked images by interactively aligning a straightening bar to an element in the photo or specifying an angle of rotation. Use the interactive Perspective Correction tool to adjust the perspective of buildings, landmarks, or objects in photos.
Thick and thin line drawing - Easily add depth to an isometric with the time saving Thick and Thin Lines feature. Automatically apply two line weights at once and reverse them in a click.
Scale halos with outlines - When it comes to adding halos on lines, enjoy the ability to lock the ratio between your outline width and halo width for seamless scaling.
Add Perspective effect - Quickly create the illusion of distance and depth by applying perspective to bitmaps, vector objects, or both, directly in the drawing window. It’s an ingenious tool to showcase technical illustrations in real world scenarios.
Apply envelopes to bitmaps - Shape a bitmap interactively by placing it in an envelope and dragging its nodes. Quickly and seamlessly blend a bitmap into an illustration by using envelope presets or crafting a custom envelope from scratch.
GPU accelerated vector previews - Reposition and edit complex vector shapes without taxing your system’s resources. Using the graphics processing unit (GPU) may accelerate the display, editing, and manipulation of graphics in Corel DESIGNER, CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT on some machines.
Symmetry drawing mode - Create a range of symmetrical designs, from simple objects to complex effects in real time, and boost your productivity by automating what is usually a very time-consuming workflow.
3D PDF publishing - Publish to 3D PDF with interactive viewing of 3D content, combined with other visual and text elements. Export from Corel DESIGNER to 3D PDF to generate output with pertinent data and graphics in one document for cross- media publishing. 3D PDF files can be viewed with free PDF reader applications.
Translation Memory System (TMS) workflow - Produce illustrations that contain descriptive text, then output directly to the Translation Memory System (TMS), and process in Corel DESIGNER for translated results to use in multilingual global technical publication
