ClarisDraw has features similar to more advanced vector drawing programs such as FreeHand and Illustrator such as binding Text to a Path and Layers support. It also lacks typographical controls that you'd expect from those high end vector drawing apps. ClarisDraw never became a serious player in the DTP world.
It does however retain a Claris "Look & Feel" that makes using ClarisDraw a breeze to those familiar with other Claris software products. Its an excellent program for knocking out flyers and brochures that look fab, quickly.
