CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X8 – Update 1

Update 1 of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X8 includes the following performance and stability improvements (formerly released in service packs).

  • When you double-click CorelDRAW files that contain text, they now open much faster.
  • CAPTURE captures the cursor as expected when the Capture cursor option is selected.
  • Small issues with several CorelDRAW® and Corel® PHOTO-PAINT ® icons have been resolved, including improved icon display when the dark or the black theme is selected.
  • Application cursors appear at the right size when you increase the font size of the operating system to 125%.
  • Printing a CorelDRAW document to a Device Independent Postscript file no longer causes the application to stop responding.
  • The color pickers are fully functional when you first launch CorelDRAW or Corel PHOTO-PAINT.
  • All images on the Welcome screen are resized properly when you change the scaling level of the application UI.
  • When you sample mesh fill colors in a PowerClip container, the sample now picks up the mesh fill colors, not the colors of the container.
  • Mesh fill colors match the document color mode.
  • The Font list box in CorelDRAW is displayed without delay when you monitor large font folders in Corel Font Manager.
  • Gradient midpoint settings are preserved in PDF files imported in CorelDRAW.
  • CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X8 can be installed if Visual Studio C++ Redistributable 2015 Update 2 is already installed.

Note: Update 1 also includes Hotfix 1, which addressed issues that caused the applications to stop responding, run slowly, or open certain CorelDRAW documents with a single blank page.
