Corel Draw, spelt as CorelDRAW, is a graphic design program for Windows systems that includes a user-friendly interface and automatic file saving and backup features. The program's Autosave feature saves your files after a set amount of minutes. If you are using an older or slower system, the Autosave feature may pause CorelDRAW and prevent you from using the program until the save process is complete. However, you can turn off Autosave without disabling the program's manual save process.
