Re: I need some pointers

I have been using CorelDraw since it's beginning and have found it ahead of Illustrator in ease and functionality. Illustrator has always been baffling in interface. Interesting to me, Photoshop has always seemed easy and intuitive while Corel's Photopaint awkward.

Considering there is a very lucrative industry replacing cracked screens I'd say it's a thing. That said this new claim seems kind of like - you test it first. Even if the screen still works looking through a spider web of cracks can be maddening.
