Creating a pattern fill using the Create Pattern command

You can create two-color and full-color pattern fills based on an area in your drawing using the Create Pattern command. CorelDRAW lets you marquee select an area, which then becomes a pattern fill.

To create a two-color pattern using the Create Pattern command

1 Click Tools, Create, Pattern.

2 Enable the Two-Color button.

3 Specify a resolution by enabling one of the following buttons:

• Low — creates a low-resolution, two-color pattern

• Medium — creates a medium-resolution, two-color pattern

• High — creates a high-resolution, two-color pattern

4 Click OK. The cursor changes to cross hairs.

5 Drag a marquee box around the graphic or area of the graphic that you want to make into a pattern.

The new pattern appears at the bottom of the Pattern picker list.

To create a full-color pattern using the Create Pattern command

1 Click Tools, Create, Pattern.

2 Enable the Full Color button.

3 Click OK. The cursor changes to cross hairs.

4 Drag a marquee box around the graphic or area of the graphic that you want to make into a pattern.

5 Click OK in the Create Pattern message box.

6 Type a name for the pattern in the File Name box, and click the Save button.

The new pattern appears at the bottom of the Pattern picker list.

• You can also access the Create Pattern dialog box by clicking the Select Pattern button on the Property Bar.
