CorelDRAW X6 & PHOTO-PAINT X6 – the Tech specs details

In my previous post I mentioned the release of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 and a few of the new features. In this post I will try to add a more detailed list of whats new. And if I forget anything I will try to remember to add it to this same thread.

If you are upgrading from let say CorelDRAW X4 or earlier, then I recomend my detail spec list for CorelDRAW X5. That will give you a super list I would say of most of the new and  enhanced features. And dont foget all the bugs being fixed as well.
