This just in from the Andy Church and the Painter Team:
Apple announced that the new operating system, Mavericks was ready for FREE download on Tuesday October 22nd. Based on historical release practices at Apple, our team was not expecting this until late November.
As of today, October 23rd, Painter X3 does not completely support Mavericks. To maintain your current user experience with Painter, we would recommend you NOT upgrade to Mavericks at this time.
We are looking at the overall user experience of the final version of Mavericks and we are assessing any required code changes we need to make.
Later this week we will communicate when we expect to have full support for Mavericks. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Andy and the Painter Team
You can find the message on Painter Factory.
Thanks for the heads-up, I was not planning to upgrade as yet, Besides Corel, the other important software for me has to do with Adobe, Creative Suite 6. By the way I believe your in my neck of the woods Atlanta, right? Actually for me it’s Marietta, GA. I just bought the upgrade for Painter X3, it’s wonderful!
Yep, we are close. I live in Winston, which is between Douglasville and Villa Rica.
Glad you like the upgrade…I think it is great, too.
Too late 😦 Wish I had this message yesterday.

Sorry, I just found out myself this morning and posted as fast as I could.
I have had no problems with it so far. Keeping my fingers crossed. My mail, however, is going bonkers.
Thanks for the feedback Renee. I was worried about you. It is odd, but some folks have no trouble at all, and then others do. We should hear a date for a patch for Mavericks this week.
Thank You Skip…
You are welcome Mark!
Well, it’s too late for me, wish I had this message too. I have CorelPainter 12, will it get fix too?
I don’t know about Painter 12.
it appeared ¨error 20¨ when trying to open it, i followed corel instructions for it on their site, and its working fine now. Panic attack, over now 🙂
Thanks for the feedback Luis. I’ll pass along. I’m so glad it worked for you.
Don’t feel responsible Skip.
“free” was too hard to resist…. I was hoping Painter X3 might stop crashing on closedown if I installed Mavericks, but now I don’t know what to expect, except to be patient and wait for Corel to do their stuff. Other than this sad news, Mavericks is really running well.
Thanks for the comment. I’m glad Marvericks is running well…nice to have a positive.
upgraded before i checked my email , now i am afraid to open any of my programs , guess i ‘ll use my older computer with older versions until i get the green light . i actually called the my apple # and asked the question of compatibility and was told to go ahead and install without worry . now i don’t know what and when to expect any news .
I’m not sure if there are other problems with other software. You might as well give it a try. Good luck.
So far, Painter X3 has been working pretty well under Mavericks, but repeatable crashes can be had by making, actually by saving, a new pattern.
Also all the adjustment slider bars in things like the underpainting menu work, but look weird. I’ll keep using X3 and see what else I run into.
Thanks for the update. Anything you discover, I’ll pass along.
I need a drawing program for mac. It must have the possibility to paste pictures in it. Can you do that with painter X3?
Yes Corel Painter X3 has many drawing tools and can clone from photographs if that is what you want to do. You can download the full program for a 30 day free trial and give it a try. Here is the site for the download:
I hope you like it.
