      Similarily to GIMP vs Adobe Photoshop, once you get used to the differences, just about anything is possible. Keep in mind though that switching is always harder than just starting out with a piece of software. In other words, it's easier to use Inkskape if you've never started out with Coreldraw in the first place, and vice versa.

      Its not intuitive. Its like a new program of design, and that its hard to assimilate.

      I Have had CorelDraw graphic suite for 35 years until it was deleted by an upgrade malfunction, and Corel says I need proof of purchase before they will help, so after looking at your program I and several others, I feel like checking it out
