Finding and using the transformation tools

In CorelDRAW there are numerous ways to transform objects, but most fall into one of two categories: transforming interactively, and transforming with precision. You can choose the method that suits you best, depending on your preference and your drawing. An interactive transformation is one you do quickly and visually on screen, often using the mouse. A more precise transformation involves specifying numerical coordinates and values that tell CorelDRAW exactly how to change the object.

When applying transformations to objects in CorelDRAW using the mouse, you can usually hold down CTRL or SHIFT to constrain or transform the object from its center, respectively. By maintaining these CorelDRAW settings, you ensure that they work in the traditional CorelDRAW fashion. However, you can change these default settings to Windows standards if you prefer.
