I noticed in the latest advertisement drive that Coreldraw 2020 has the option of a box set for the full version. I presume that includes the hard disc. I thought Corel had dropped dvds in favour of download, along with upgrades.
What's the general feedback on 2020? Is it better than the previous one - ie 2019 that actually works. I really appreciated some of the new features in 2019 but had to give up using the programme after it proved so unreliable.

Can you explain exactly what you mean with this? Thx.
The features that are very useful to my workflow are the non-destructive effects. Unfortunately the programme crashed all the time, and without any warning, costing me a lot of time and work. The occurrences were so bad that I was forced to set saving to every 5 minutes, which in itself proved a hindrance.
I've long been accustomed to occasional crashes in Coreldraw - a more than acceptable trade-off for a fabulous bit of software, but the frequency in 2019 exceeded, by far, anything experienced in previous versions. I've tried all the standard fixes right up to re-installment but to no avail; the 3 updates doing nothing to improve stability.
I've been a Coreldraw user since version 9 and have never experienced such a level of unreliability. Judging by the number of complaints in the forum I'm hardly alone in my disquiet.
I met this crashing issue with non-destructive effect when i have used the Motion Blur: Direction:90. Honestly, i did not tried all effects, just some of them. Have you met crashing problems with all non-destructive effects or just with some of them?
Sorry, I obviously wasn't too clear. My problems weren't specifically with the non-destructive effects; the crashing occurred across the board.
If I felt 2020 was reliable, I might well consider purchasing it, but not unless I could be reasonably confident that the 2019 bugs had been resolved in 2020. I won't be throwing good money after bad, especially with the outrageous abandonment of upgrades.

Ok. Where you met crashing issues in CorelDraw2019?
