Advanced illustration

Thanks to new precision layout capabilities and the Draw in Perspective feature, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2021 makes complicated workflows simple.
Perspective drawing:
 Draw objects or illustrated scenes in perspective, faster and easier than ever. Choose from 1, 2, or 3-point perspective, draw or add an existing group of objects on a shared perspective plane, and move and edit objects freely without losing perspective.
Snap to self: A new setting allows you to prevent objects from snapping to their own snap points so you can move and transform design elements with ease and precision.
Guidelines: When working with guidelines you can switch views from world scale to page dimensions in a click, and it’s now easier to manage custom guidelines too.
