Adding new object data fields

If the preset formats in CorelDRAW don't provide the information you want in your data summary, you can create your own custom formats using the variables available for the format type you're using. The field format you select is used for all objects in the active drawing.

To add a field that uses a preset format

1 Click Tools, Object Data Manager.

2 In the Object Data Docker, click jJ, Field Editor.

3 Click the Create New Field button.

4 Type a name for the field in the box.

5 Click the Change button (unless you want to keep the format displayed beside the Current label).

6 In the Format Type box, enable the format type you want to create.

7 Choose a format from the list box and press ENTER.

8 Click the Add Selected Field(s) button.

To add a field that uses a custom format

1 Follow steps 1 to 6 from the previous procedure.

2 In the Create box, type the format you want to create and press ENTER.

3 Click the Add Selected Field(s) button.

• Enable the List Of Default Fields check box to add the new field to the list of default fields. This field is then applied to all new documents you create.

• Enable the All Objects check box to apply the field to objects that have already been created in addition to those you will be creating.

You can change any object data field by giving it a preset or custom format. For example, you can change a numeric field to display more or fewer decimal places, or to display numbers in thousands.
