Applying a Post Script texture pattern

PostScript textures are fills that you can change by altering a set of variables. These patterns don't appear on screen. Instead, you see a pattern that contains the letters "PS" (unless you are in Enhanced view).

You can use the PostScript Texture dialog box or the Interactive Fill tool to apply PostScript texture fills. The PostScript Texture dialog box lets you choose a texture, adjust options, and view the effects in the Preview window. PostScript textures created in CorelDRAW can be exported in Encapsulated PostScript (.EPS) format for use in other applications. For more information see "Importing, exporting, and OLE" on page 743.
