Hi,

I have almost resolved all my SWITCHING problems having had my Imac for almost a year now.

There is only one program I miss from my PC.

Coreldraw. I used it a lot but not really for vector drawing but mainly it's typographical power.

Corel no longer support the Mac (more fool them) and I have tried using Coreldraw X3 under Parallels but really want the native Mac equivalent. I know all of you will scream Adobe Illustrator but are there any other alternatives? I have Comic Life but it is not really powerful enough and Inkscape is so clunky running as it does under that Linux shell.

Any other options you can suggest?


Thanks

Sid

I've heard Intaglio is awesome. I have the demo, but have yet to need to use it.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I think having a look at Lineform is a good idea. It looks rather good. And you can even download a demo to try it out.
