I am very happy to announce that we started shipping CorelDRAW Home & Student Suite X6 and that it will be available in the next few weeks at selected retailers around the world.
CorelDRAW Home & Student Suite X6 brings the power of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 to hobbyists and students who are looking for a product to be used exclusively for non-commercial purpose.
Based on the same core as CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6.1, Home & Student is built from the ground-up for the users who create graphics for print and the web in non-commercial usage, e.g. for your school project or not-for-profit associations and clubs. The license is therefore strictly limited to non-commercial use. At the same time, we know that some of you have multiple computers in your household, and therefore allow the installation of CorelDRAW Home & Student Suite X6 on up to 3 different computers in the household (not in the office, remember the non-commercial use comment).
From a feature-set perspective, you get almost complete versions of CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT in the box. The biggest difference compared to CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 are that Home & Student Suite X6 does not include VBA / VSTA or Macro support, and some more advanced features a professional user would need are not available (such as PrePress, PreFlight, specific file formats such as CGM, advanced OpenType features, or color management options). Finally, the Home & Student version is not eligible for our Memberships offering, has reduced the amount of content on the disc and the printed Hard-cover book from Graphics Suite is not included (it is included in electronic format).
This enables us to provide CorelDRAW Home & Student Suite X5 at US$129 / € 99 in many countries around the world. We actually have this product available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Czech, Polish and Russia and it can be purchased from our authorized channel partners, including many retail stores in your country.
X6 is the third version of Coreldraw that I have purchased and I cannot believe they have taken away the print preview facility. This was such a valuable feature and without it the X6 version is a waste of time. I am also unable to print in colour. I will be removing the X6 version and going back to X5. I cannot recommend this product.
I've bought it already and noticed that importing DWG files is impossible. Unfortunatelly I haven't checked it before...
Is there any way to open CAD files with layers in this edition? Buing CorelCAD 2013 is a solution? It will work with HOme&Student Suite?
Os40la, no it doesn't. VBA and VSTA are not included in the Home & Student Edition.
Does the student version support 3rd party macro plugins?
I posted the comparison matrix in a recent blog post. Here is the link: coreldraw.com/.../graphics-suite-x6-vs-home-amp-student-suite-x6-comparison-matrix.aspx
Yes, the feature set of Home & Student X6 has been reduced compared to previous versions, but some new functionality has also been added based on the new X6 engine.
