For the price (I picked up CorelDraw & Corel Ventura on an upgrade offer),
it's worth it. It does have some enhancements. For example, it's finally
adhering to more Windows conventions, such as replacing blocked typed.

I haven't had a lot of time with Corel Ventura yet, but I'm just starting a
project that will use most of Ventura's features. So far, about all I've done
is import an old (DOS/GEM) Ventura file into it and make some minor
modifications. That went smoothly. In about a month I should have a better
idea of how it works. If you're still looking by then, remind me to tell you
how it's going!

You're right - I couldn't find much on Xerox Ventura vs Corel Ventura when I
was looking at it. Is anybody else still using it? Several of my clients are
going to Word for Windows 6.0. :-(

HTH! - Barb
