Thanks to everyone for answering my questions as a newbie this morning - great stuff (with a special shout-out / thanks to HarryLondon).
As I am now on the brink of purchasing the FULL version of X6, my final question for now relates to the age of X6 (Full) - and if anyone has any "intel" on when we are likely to see Version X7 ??
Does anyone have any idea how regularly versions are released by Corel? And if so, a rough estimate for when we are likely to see X7 be released?
(my obvious concern being that I am keen to avoid shelling out in version X6, if X7 is due next week / waiting around the corner!)
My guess is about a year from now.

Hello John; No one knows about X7 release date, I think it will be next year. If you get the premium sub. it is free plus you get the changes to the program in advance as they are setup.
i5 Intel 2500K 4.0 mh, 16 gig Ram, SSD Main Drive, 1T WD Black, 1T
Segate, 2 gig DDR 5 G Force Video card, Windows 7 Utl. 64 bit, ASRock Extreme 4 Mobo
OK - thanks a lot, I will take a look into the "Premium Sub" option :) -John.
With regards to the Premium Sub / Membership option.. is this done *after* you purchase and install the current boxed or download edition? Also, approx. how much does the subscription / membership cost?
(I just had a look on the Corel UK Site but although there was a reference to it no pricing was stated - unless I missed it, which is possible!)
Thanks again. Keen to make the "Best Value" purchase - ideally starting with the resale of my X6 S&H on Amazon Marketplace - followed by the purchase of the FULL X6 edition on Amazon too (to then be followed by the Subscription - if affordable to me and applicable my that method?)
John when you have install & updated the ver. you will have a icon at the bottom right of the screen that you can click on to get more info. The cost is $100.00 a year in the US. ( Screen shot below.)
Thanks for this!
I will proceed with my purchase of CorelDraw X6 Full edition sometime soon, and then look into the UK price for Membership (typically this is likely to exceed what it *should* be (based on the Exchange rate of £ : $ etc.!) - but hey, I'm used to that!
Hello Have you a date for x7?
If i buy a CorelDRAW Subscription, i have x7 for the same price?
Good question! (re: X7)
According to Amazon.co.uk (where I obtained X6) there is a "New" version available (either already or soon) but it is not titled "X7" but instead is named by the year (2014) - see here:
I hope that helps?
X7 has not yet been announced -- though there was an appeal for beta testers several months ago, so we can guess it will be coming ... some time. Nobody knows when, apart from possibly Corel staff who are not allowed to say anything.
If you had a subscription to X6 from the beginning, you were promised to get X7 when it came out. But I'm not sure if that will apply to people who take out subscriptions shortly before a new release. There might be a cut off date.
Tanks for quick response
John Mounsey:it is not titled "X7" but instead is named by the year (2014)
Hmm ... That's confusing.
Its odd that it has appeared on amazon before being announced on corel.com, but 2014 is just the bundle date and doesn't necessarily mean there's a new version beyond X6.4 included in it. The difference could just be in bundled items.
In particular, you should note that it is only Home and Student with many limitations, not a full retail version.
