We have been using CorelDraw since the first versions. It would be a great software if it was not really boggous. We get constant crashes and corrupted files. As soon as you start working seeriously with this sofware (more images, working wit files on a network, color management, etc) The software will start happily crashing and creating lots of corrupted files. Which means lots of lost irrecuperable work. We paid for the support and even Corel cannot help us make the software stables. We lost many files and are currently switching to Adobe.
InDesign CS3 initially had a serious compatibility issue with Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5), as Adobe stated: "InDesign CS3 may unexpectedly quit when using the Place, Save, Save As or Export commands using either the OS or Adobe dialog boxes. Unfortunately, there are no workarounds for these known issues."[6] Apple fixed this with their OS X 10.5.4 update.[7]

Complex script rendering: InDesign supports Unicode character encoding, with Middle East editions supporting complex text layout for Arabic and Hebrew types of complex script. The underlying Arabic and Hebrew support is present in the Western editions of InDesign CS4, CS5, CS5.5 and CS6, but the user interface is not exposed, so it is difficult to access.
Print and digital advertising management is now under a single operating structure headed by Grant Moise, The News’ publisher and president. — Maria Halkias, Dallas News, "Dallas Morning News parent reports a profit from sale of former HQ, reduced expenses," 30 July 2019 Named for Fred Hartman, the editor and publisher of the Baytown Sun from 1950 to 1974, this is one of just four cable-stayed bridges in the state, and the longest one of the four. — Darla Guillen Gilthorpe, Houston Chronicle, "Texas travel guide: Can you identify these famous Texas bridges?," 29 July 2019 Later taking over as editor and publisher, Grinnell stayed with the publication for more than three decades, changing it from must-reading for posh hunters and fishermen to the stern voice of the burgeoning American conservation movement. — Dennis Drabelle, chicagotribune.com, "Grinnell: The adventurer who helped preserve wild lands and Native American history," 23 July 2019 Happy birthday, Courtney. *** Lisa Whittington-Hill is the publisher of This Magazine. — Lisawhill, Longreads, "Live Through This: Courtney Love at 55," 9 July 2019 In a statement Thursday, Quadracci said merging with LSC would help ensure print's viability as a channel for publishers and retailers. — Rick Romell, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, "Justice Department files antitrust suit to stop massive acquisition by Quad/Graphics," 21 June 2019 Follow writers, editors, and publishers you like on social media. — Jenni Miller, SELF, "7 Ways to Find Truly Sexy Erotica, According to Someone Who Reads Tons of It," 22 Feb. 2019 Over time, the industry veteran held virtually every position within Marvel Comics—writer, editor, publisher, media producer, television host, actor, and perhaps most notably, president and chairman. — Nathan Mattise, Ars Technica, "Legendary Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee has died," 12 Nov. 2018 The focus of his ire was the presence of six conservative publications at a bi-annual meeting that Brown ran last Thursday in New York with a group of editors and publishers Facebook works with. — Kara Swisher, Recode, "Media — both on the left and right — are pressing Facebook to define what journalism is," 17 July 2018
Editors who collaborate on documents with others can make use of the Review tab. The new Compare pull-down menu lets you look at two versions of the same document side by side, as well as merge changes from several authors and editors into one file. Administrative assistants and those charged with mass-mailing tasks should find those features much easier to access than in Word 2003. Bloggers can now compose and post entries to their Web sites without leaving Word.
In 1987, Corel engineers Michel Bouillon and Pat Beirne undertook to develop a vector-based illustration program to bundle with their desktop publishing systems. That program, CorelDraw, was initially released in 1989. CorelDraw 1.x and 2.x ran under Windows 2.x and 3.0. CorelDraw 3.0 came into its own with Microsoft's release of Windows 3.1. The inclusion of TrueType in Windows 3.1 transformed CorelDraw into a serious illustration program capable of using system-installed outline fonts without requiring third-party software such as Adobe Type Manager; paired with a photo-editing program (Corel Photo-Paint), a font manager and several other pieces of software, it was also part of the first all-in-one graphics suite.
InDesign is an industry-standard for publishing design and is used by graphics and marketing professionals. It may be used in conjunction with other applications that are part of the Adobe Creative Cloud including Illustrator and Photoshop, or it can be used on its own. Images and illustrations are usually not created within InDesign, rather layouts using text, images, and drawings that often are built in other programs are assembled into a layout using InDesign.

Later versions of the software introduced new file formats. To support the new features, especially typographic, introduced with InDesign CS, both the program and its document format are not backward-compatible. Instead, InDesign CS2 introduced the INX (.inx) format, an XML-based document representation, to allow backwards compatibility with future versions. InDesign CS versions updated with the 3.1 April 2005 update can read InDesign CS2-saved files exported to the .inx format. The InDesign Interchange format does not support versions earlier than InDesign CS. With InDesign CS4, Adobe replaced INX with InDesign Markup Language (IDML), another XML-based document representation.[4]
