    CorelDraw version differences


    I am using X4 presently...on Win 10 Pro. Just upgraded to Win 10. It's not entirely ideal--doesn't really function like it should. Been thinking about upgrading CorelDraw. But there's so many options now I'm not sure what to look for. CorelDraw Graphics Suite X8, CorelDraw Graphics Suite 2018 and CorelDraw Home and Student X8.

    I am by no means an expert with CorelDraw although I have been using it since maybe around version 4. So I have some pretty firm ideas about what I can and need to do.

    I want a full featured vector drawing program. I could use a photo editor (PP), but there are other programs out there that do almost all I need. Maybe the Trace utility. But most of the rest of the Graphic Suite useless...for what I need.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, except for the glitches on Win 10, I am content with X4.

    I suspect a lot of people would be happy if Corel just separated out the photo imaging stuff from the drawing stuff--offered CorelDraw by its lonesome...maybe with text functionality, the ability to import bitmaps and an autotrace ability.

    So again I am forced (?) to look at upgrading. But reading the comparisons and reviews on-line I am not sure that the Home and Student version of X8 would meet my needs. Seems like the Vector drawing bit is pretty rudimentary--crippled by comparison.

    And what does 2018 lack in comparison to X8?...in terms of functionality and what I am used to with X4?.

    What are the differences between CorelDraw X8, CorelDraw 2018 and the Home and Student version of X8, for instance...aside from price (a significant factor)?

    Can someone please shed some light on this?

    :)
