    In both application you may do almost everything if you know how. Effects like gradients and shadows was better in AI before corel X6. For me corel is better because I am faster there. Here is some shorts which everyone should know:

    Algin objects
    First select object which you want to align then select object to align with, after that just press
    "C" for centar horizontal
    "E" for centar vertical
    "T" for top
    "B" for bottom
    "L" for left
    "R" for right

    This is for corel

    It is good to you make some extra short cut, maybe for "copy properties from" "copy effects from" "place inside power clip" etc.

    Here you have tutorial how to do that

    For me it is easier to use Illustrator when making logos or simple graphics and I am not good with Corel but been with Corel for almost a year there are tools which is hard to use but whats good in corel is that its very light and fast to load and also you can make multiple pages very helpfull when making multiple pages design like if its a book or something. but if youre gonna be designing for logos and stuff or banners i would prefer illustrator because it is very user friendly and you can find tons of tuts for ai compared to coreldraw which is very helpful when you are doing self study of that software. aiiighht

    For me, I prefered AI. First it is widely use, Second its friendly user compare to CorelDraw and easy to use vector based software.

    But frankly I tell you the truth, CorelDraw was my first software use for designing. Sooner I realize that AI is the best one, thats why I shift to AI and always use it for all of my designs work.

    To me I'm not familiar with corel. In my country most people are know Adobe better than Corel. Agree with VhienceFX, I think AI is more user friendly than corel.

    Illustrator for me! Main reason is it is an industry standard, cdr files can be very difficult and frustrating for clients to work with. If the designer doesn't convert or save the cdr file correct then we have many problems with source files.

    As a designer I have to go with illustrator for any logo or signage work.

    i also use illustrator. corel does not have the opacity and blending mode. it uses lenses which is complicated.

    it is true ... I agree with Sharie, the industry standard now switched to using file ai, although there is still a few who use the cdr. and I acknowledge that Adobe is better than corel and I have proved!

    i had been using the CorelDraw 9-X5 since 8-9 years. i found it the best so far, in my point of view the CorelDraw and illustrator both are best, somethings are better in CorelDraw and some other things are good in illustrator.

    illustrator is better for source files and the ability to export to photoshop and pdf, easily used and any client can use it, also most printing offices deal with illustrator for printing purposes and so making it easier for clients to use your files

    I think in Corel are some very powerful tools for image vector, compared to Illustrator. Also i don't know how easy it can establish preferences keys in Illustrator.Collaboration between programs in Photoshop, Illustrator and Flash gives a big advantage.

    I use Corel GraphicSuite for ALL my designs (CorelDraw almost exclusively / Photopaint for some raster after-effects).

    Nice topic!
    Keep it up!
