Default Serif Launches DrawPlus X6

Hello everyone!
Serif is delighted to announce the release of DrawPlus X6. Described as ‘Digital Art and Design Made Easy,’ DrawPlus X6 takes your creativity to the next level! Brand new vector drawing tools give you the freedom to create an even greater range of custom lines and shapes, and workflow and productivity enhancements, like an improved Layers Tab and optical stacking, mean you can work smarter and more productively. Underpinning all the improvements is enhanced Accelerated Graphics Technology which now natively supports 64-bit computers for an improved design experience.

Some of the great new features and improvements in DrawPlus X6 include:
  • NEW! Native support for 64-bit computers
    DrawPlus ‘Accelerated Graphics Technology now natively supports 64-bit computers for the fastest and most complete design experience yet. Note: 32-bit still supported.

  • NEW! Arc Tool
    Drawing intricate arcs is easy! Simply drag out an arc onto a page and then customise curvature and whether your arc has a border or is inverted.
  • NEW! Spiral Tool
    Creating impressive-looking spirals is quick and easy with this great new tool. Simply drag out a spiral onto a page and customise the number of turns and spacing between line segments. Unlike the Spiral QuickShape, the Spiral Tool creates a spiral that is composed of just one single line as opposed to two lines that are joined together.
  • NEW! Triangle Tool
    A dedicated tool means that it’s quicker than ever to draw triangles. No longer do you have to laboriously select the Polygon QuickShape and adjust its sliders to reduce the number of sides.
  • NEW! Stencils Tab
    The new Stencils Tab offers a wide selection of ready-to-go stencil templates which, when painted or sketched over, can be used to artistically embellish your designs. If you’re feeling adventurous, create your own stencils and save them as templates.
  • NEW! QuickFrame QuickShape
    Draw ornate frames, ideal for making images stand out.
  • NEW! Phenakistiscope QuickShape
    When cut out, spun on a stick and viewed in a mirror, a Phenakistiscope creates the illusion of animation. The Phenakistiscope Quickshape allows you to create a customisable template and populate it with drawings, frame by frame, just like an animation.

  • NEW! Optical stacking
    Objects in your designs are now stacked optically which means, when adjusting the z-order of objects, you don’t have to scroll through all objects on the page; a huge time saver when working on large or detailed designs.
  • IMPROVED! Layers Tab
    The Layers Tab in DrawPlus now allows individual objects on a page to be hidden from view, which makes it easier to edit specific elements of a design.
  • NEW Text wrapping
    For the first time in DrawPlus, you can truly integrate text with objects by setting text to flow around objects and customising wrap settings.
  • NEW! Open images in PhotoPlus
    Easily open any selected image in your document in Serif PhotoPlus or any other dedicated image editor of your choice. Once you’ve finished editing, the image updated image is automatically re-imported back into DrawPlus. Note: PhotoPlus or other image editing software required.
  • NEW! Generate palette from an image
    Automatically generate a palette of colours from an image and save to a custom palette.
  • NEW! PANTONE GOE colours
    DrawPlus X6 now supports the PANTONE® GOE™ colour system, providing access to more than 2000 extra colours, and perfect for obtaining colour consistency across all the media you design for.
  • IMPROVED! PDF Export
    For the first time, DrawPlus supports PDF/X-3: a PDF specification increasingly required by professional printers.
