I have been using Corel 9 since about 2004. Today, the computer I do all my work on died, and of course I had not installed Corel on my windows 8. I would like to find something very similar to 9 that I can install on windows 8/10....any suggestions?
Sad thing, the oldest version that works on Win10 is version X4, if I recall correctly
I'd say get yourself a copy of X5 for legacy stuff and a copy of 2017 just to see what Draw is capable of now. X5 is the last version where you can use bitmap fills easily, and it will open really old files right back to v3 (possibly earlier). After this you start to see quite big changes, X6 and beyond will not open or import v5 and earlier files, which IMO is a disgrace, Corel should at least offer an import filter.
I used to use a lot, like 100's, of bitmap fills and it was a doddle to import them into each new version. Not any more, you have to import each one and save it manually. So bad I stopped using bitmap fills.
