Applying transformations to duplicates

CorelDRAW offers you an easy way to experiment with different transformations. If you want to see the effect of a transformation but keep the original intact, you can transform a copy of the object.

The advantage of transforming a duplicate is that you can experiment: CorelDRAW lets you view the transformation on a copy of the object (2) without changing the original (1).

CorelDRAW creates a copy of the object as it is being transformed, leaving the original unaffected. If you decide that you'd rather keep the original, you can simply delete the copy.
