NEW!Clean and precise lines

Lines can now also be set much more precisely with DrawPlus X8. The new Hairlines option allows you to adjust the line shape to filigree designs that are to be output on special printers or laser cutters.
Connecting lines to forms is also very easy. The lines simply snap together - almost like magic. These simple and intuitive line tools let you set all the options you need to create the creative shapes you want for your designs.
NEW!Contour lines for stacking effects

NEW! Replicate and Fill Area tool
Fill shapes and even incomplete shapes with the Fill Area tool. With just a few clicks, not only entire objects can be filled, but also areas that are "fenced in" by several lines. This tool is perfect if you want to re-color the different parts of sketches and pictures that you have imported by AutoTracing. But even black and white drawings can be colored quickly, easily and precisely in this way.
NEW! Patterned vector fillings
Have you always wanted to fill shapes with the patterns and designs you have drawn yourself? With the new vector fills of DrawPlus X8 this is no problem at all. Simply use one of the predefined fills or use your own hatching and similar line patterns. But vector fills are not only something for sketches and digital art - technical drawings also benefit from these flexible surface patterns (e.g. construction and garden plans or even maps).
NEW! New effects for photo editing (luminosity, clarity, split toning, tilt/shift, etc.) and advanced filter effects (tail, reflection with waves, etc.)
