Customizing Corel Applications

Corel applications have several customization features that let you create your own workspace. You can define shortcut keys, arrange menus, and set viewing options for Color Palettes. You can customize toolbars, the Property Bar, and the Status Bar, by changing their appearance, contents, and placement. You can also customize your import/export filters, file associations, and set system sounds. These settings are adjusted using the Options dialog box.

In addition, you can save your customization as part of your workspace settings. You can access your custom settings by loading your saved workspace.

Corel online Help is based on the application's default settings. When you customize the toolbars, the Property Bar, and the Status Bar, the Help topics associated with them do not reflect your changes.
