Unless there is a Corel app I don't know about, I am surprised that Corel hasn't tried to develop a page layout app (unless CorelDraw is considered to be that) in order to try and compete with InDesign.

Well if you remember our dear old friend David Millisock, you would know that page layout on CorelDraw is easier than inDesign or Quark even though it actually isn't a page layout. But its so good that it still beats the big players. Also, I'm assuming since you haven't received a Corel file in years and don't currently use it that your going to be closing up shop soon because any shop using another program is doomed to fail :rolleyes:

Ha ha. All sarcasm and jokes aside (and with respect to David), I neither like or dislike Corel. I have used it before, albeit briefly. I am sure it is a great app but as I mentioned in another thread with David, I have to support what my customers use. My guess is that David is in a market that is Corel dominant where InDesign is the chief app used by the vast majority of my customers. Sadly, a few of my customers still insist on Publisher.

dmillsock simply thinks outside the box. he’s got a secret stash/cache of *.cdr vectors … and, once IW1(image-war-1) transcends, with adobe and quark surreptitiously annihilating each other … our constituent will pull out all the stops … claiming ultimate victory.

on a serious note … i do venerate the man … he’s got integrity and volition. my issue is with corel’s lack of regard … toward what paint-shop-pro used to stand for. notwithstanding … i bow in humble supplication unto jasc’s demise.

peace out.

His shop must be right next to Corel headquarters. :p
Our large format & signage business has been growing by leaps & bounds and I have yet to receive a Corel file from any of our customers.

Again, I neither like or dislike Corel. I just thought it was funny that after ALLLLLLLL these years, on the very day I mention that I've not received a Corel file in years, one shows up LOL

We are working on getting the customer to save it as an AI file.

Back in 2005 the company that I went to become the manager of had a copy and allowed its use. One day, I "accidentally" made it not work any longer then sent an email stating such to sales.
I won.
 

Color Optimized?

Ink
by Noel Ward, Editor@Large
Color is in demand in all types of documents, making color management a critical part of Digital Printing 5.0. Managing color on one device/press can be an easy task with the correct tools and processes. But managing color to ensure printed pages are consistent and repeatable across the different substrates and color gamuts of toner and inkjet can be a much bigger challenge. Properly implemented color management workflows can help achieve consistent color results across multiple devices. Although many end-customers are claiming satisfaction with “pleasing color,” two challenges are still in play. Link to Article
