The all-new 2019 version of the graphic design software suite is compatible with not only Windows but also Mac, complete with support for Dark Mode on macOS Mojave and the Touch Bar on the latest MacBook Pro models, providing quick access to layout settings, text controls, and more.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2019 for Mac adheres to Apple's Human Interface Guidelines, meaning that menus, buttons, labels, and other user interface elements are consistent with Apple's first-party Mac apps.

CorelDRAW is best known for vector graphic design and illustration, but it can also be used for page layout, layer-based photo editing, RAW image processing, indexing and organizing font libraries, and more. The suite will compete with the likes of Adobe Illustrator and Affinity Designer on Mac.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2019 for Mac is available now for $499 as a one-time purchase or $198 per year on a subscription basis via Corel's online store in the United States. The suite can also be downloaded from the Mac App Store and activated via in-app purchase. Access to the new web-based CorelDRAW.app is included.

macOS Sierra or later is required.

At $499 I'm assuming this is significantly better and more powerful than Affinity Designer? It would have to be.

Ha! Remember when Word for Mac came on about sixty 2.5" floppies? Those were the days.

Yeah, that price seems a bit crazy for an illustration program reboot that's "new" to market. Maybe they're trying to appeal to the people that are fed up with Adobe's subscription model and willing to pay a high flat price not to be milked in perpetuity?
You must have a better memory than I do, I don't remember anything coming on 2.5" floppies...
