Arranging objects

The various editing functions in CorelDRAW let you arrange your drawing any way you want. CorelDRAW also offers advanced features such as cloning and duplicating. Cloning copies selected objects directly on screen, creating a connection between the original object (the master) and the new object (the clone). This connection means that any changes made to the master object are also applied to the clone. For example, if you change the master's fill, the clone's fill also changes. Duplicating...

Working with templates

A template is a set of styles and page layout settings that determine the appearance of a drawing or document. When you create a new drawing, CorelDRAW automatically loads the default template (CORELDRW.CDT). This template has one graphics style, one Artistic text, style, and seven Paragraph text styles. In addition to the default template, CorelDRAW provides a wide variety of preset templates to help create drawings. You can find the preset templates on the CorelDRAW CD-ROM or by running the...

To set CorelDRAW to display only the styles you can apply to a selected object

1 Follow steps 1 to 2 from the previous procedure. This section describes how to create and apply color styles. To make it easier to use these styles, CorelDRAW includes a Color Styles Docker. You can use this Docker to drag and drop color styles into your drawing. You can also use the Docker to create and edit parent and child colors, as well as delete color styles you do not need. When you create a color style, the new style is saved to the current drawing. To use the style in another...

Drawing connector lines

The Connector Line tool lets you draw lines that connect objects in your drawing. For connector lines to be effective they must be linked to the objects they are labeling. To link objects, use the object's snap points. When a connector line is linked to an object, it moves when you move the object. You can only move connector lines by moving either or both of the objects they connect. You can change the outline of connector lines as well as customize connector line styles and arrowheads. For...

Linking dimension lines to objects

When dimension lines are linked to objects, operations performed on these objects will affect the dimension lines. The following is a list of common operations and the effects each operation has on linked dimension lines horizontal and vertical dimension lines remain horizontal and vertical regardless of the object's orientation. Slanted dimension lines rotate with the objects that they label. If you plan to rotate an object, you may find the slanted dimension lines more useful than the...

Changing a segments properties

Here are two types of segments straight and curved. If you click on a node with the Shape tool, the Status Bar displays the type of segment entering the node and the node type itself, for example, Selected Node Curve Smooth.

You can also change the direction of a curve and smooth out a curve using buttons on the Shape tool Property Bar.

Drawing lines and curves with the Bezier tool

The Bezier tool lets you draw lines and curves by placing each node with the mouse. As you place each node, it is connected to the previously placed node by a line or curve. The Bezier tool lets you create complex, irregular shapes quickly and easily and gives you precise control over the position and number of nodes that form a curve. You can format lines and curves as you do outlines. For example, you can choose a line width, a line style, as well as start and end arrowheads for the line. For...

Selecting objects

When you select an object, eight selection handles appear around the object. The center of the selection box is marked by a small x. When you select an object, eight selection handles appear around...

What is a bitmap image

Photo-editing applications like Corel PHOTO-PAINT work with bitmap images. When you work with bitmap images, you can refine small details, make drastic changes, and intensify effects. Bitmap images, also called raster or paint images, are made of individual dots, called pixels (picture elements), that are arranged and colored differently to form a pattern. When you zoom in, you can see the individual squares that make up the total image. Increasing the size of a bitmap has the effect of...
