    Corel Draw was made a years back but is no longer supported or updated on the Mac

    The nearest things are Adobe Illustrator, or if you are strapped for cash the open source Inkscape is still a great vector creation and drawing app

    "great" being a relative term there.

    Corel Painter and CorelCAD are still available for Mac, but CorelDRAW for Mac was last produced in 2002 (I wrote a review of it, actually).

    You can of course run CorelDRAW on your Mac anyway, using the Windows version and a virtualiser program like VirtualBox, Parallels or VMWare Fusion (I should think the latter would be your best bet). The latter two programs have "integration" modes where the Windows app appears to just open and run like a normal Mac program, making its use fairly seamless.

    Hi chas_m

    Well, i have VMWare but it slows down the system and effects other problems stability. So i wasn't really comfortable using this method.

    I downloaded Inkscape and am trying it out at the moment. Will also purchase Adobe Illustrator and give that a shot. I already have the Adobe Photoshop CS5.

    Still hoping Coreldraw would create a newer version for Mac, I think the old version available is the Coreldraw 11 i believe. I didn't like it at all. Over all coreldraw is a great graphics program. Am a long time user.

    Thanks for the response.

    Regards

    There's also a Boot Camp-created Windows partition that would probably solve the problem, but that's up to you if you want to go that route.

    Never say never -- what with all the marketshare Apple is picking up -- but I'm not very hopeful.
