CorelDRAW X6 :: Outlines On Text Or Objects Are Notched

Mar 12, 2013

Recently any outlines that I put on Text or Objects has been coming out "Notched".

I cannot be certain when this started happening, but i have tested files I have created in X6, saved down to X3 and printed from a different computer (running X3) with the same result.

Even PDFs created from this installation of X6 have this outline issue.

I have uninstalled my printer and reinstalled to see if that was the issue (HP Color LaserJet 3700). This same issue also occured on a different HP Color Laserjet 4650. These are both using PCL 5 drivers, as installed by Windows 7.

I have also tried different "Line Caps" settings, but no luck.

 This nex screen shot is a scan of the printout of the above file. as you can see the text outlines and box outlines are notched.

 This is a screen cap of the settings i have used, although it doesnt matter if I use, behind fill or not, the result is the same.

CorelDRAW X5 :: How To Convert ALL Outlines To Objects

Oct 26, 2012

I often need to convert all outlines to objects in a design before I send it out or when I create a flash base for screen printing.  I know how to convert and outline to an object, but my question is:

How do i convert ALL outlines to objects at the same time?  Is there a function I'm missing or possibly a macro?  Also, I don't want to have to select every outline myself.  I'm already doing that and ctrl/shift/Q.  Also, If I'm forced/limited to doing it myself manually, there's always the chance that I miss one.  I cannot believe that this isn't a native function.

CorelDRAW X5 :: Creating Objects From Adjacent Outlines

Jul 28, 2012

CorelDraw X5

I have drawn a shape as you will see in the attached. The white 'arches' are not there as objects in their own right, they are as a result of the orange objects and the yellow ring.

I will be passing this to a laser engraving machine and need to cut-out each object seen in its own right, including the 'arches'. Clearly in a normal printer I could just put a coloured circle behind the other objects but on a laser I need the actual shape.

I don't want to manually try to fit a bezier as the cut-out parts need to be a perfect fit as it is going to be an inlay. Each colour will be a different type of wood. Is there a macro tool that would do it?

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: How To Convert Outlines To Objects

Oct 23, 2013

When I export a page as Illustrator CS4, I choose the option "Convert outlines to objects" but it doesn't seem to do what I expect. It does fix the issue of missing arrowheads on lines, but it doesn't convert the outlines to fills as I expected -- is that correct? I wish there was an option to convert lines to fills on export.

CorelDRAW X6 :: How To Change Color Of Fills And Outlines Of All Objects In A Group

Sep 6, 2012

I have a large group of objects, all one color.  I need to make a subtle change to the color.  Is there a easy way to change all the colors in a group of object to another specific color?  Some objects only have an outline, and some only have a fill without having to go through each object one by one in the object manager?

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Globally Scale Outlines With Objects

May 11, 2013

Outlines don't scale globally with objects.  I have a crest with a bunch of elements in it.  Some have outlines and some don't.  It's 3 inches.  I would like to enlarge it to 10 or whatever.  If I select the crest and enlarge it, the outlines don't scale.  The only option I've ever known of was to take them all individually and check off the scale outline on each object.  It's a real workflow killer.

I spent the day reacquainting myself with CorelDraw.  This and other similar show stoppers remind me of how difficult it is to make the switch from Illustrator back to CorelDraw.  So how are people dealing with this?  Are you simply taking however much time it takes to change each individual element to scale with object or is there a preference somewhere that I'm missing?  This is a big stumbling block for me.  There are a lot of major features I know I'd be leaving behind but there are others that I'd have access to.  It's the little things like this that allow me to fly rather than crawl.

CorelDRAW X5 :: Put Values To Text Objects?

Mar 14, 2011

I'm designing a catalog with some prices, every product have a code. Working with layers, I can group 3 objects: A produtc photo, the price and the code. So I rename the group to the code of especified product.

As we see, I can identify the groups, and by code I know what the product I'm working on. I think it's a very organized way to work.

Here the question:

Can I load the prices values from a txt file? I'm using X5.

CorelDRAW X5 :: Snapping To Outlines

Mar 29, 2011

How do I snap (objects or, especially, guidelines) to the outer edge of an outline? The guideline always snaps to the edge of the object, if the outline is behind, or within the outline if it's in front of the object.

I usually employ workarounds  such as converting the outline to an object but that's not always convenient.

CorelDRAW X6 :: Scaling Pen Outlines

Oct 2, 2013

OK. I know how to make a Pen Outline scale with an object when I create the pen outline. But is there a way to give the scale with object attribute to all pen outlines in a compound object such as a vector clipart I purchase (or even some of the Corel clipart)? The most recent example is a state highway map I just downloaded. All the roads, lakes, rivers, county lines, etc. are created with pen outlines, but none of them scale when I scale the map larger or smaller. As you can guess there are literally tens of thousands of them on the map. Is there a way to make all of them scale without also making them all the same color and thickness?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Unfolding / Ripping Round Tubing With Both Ends Notched

Feb 22, 2013

I have been trying to unfold round tubing made through the frame generator. Here are the steps I took: 

1. Used Frame Generator 

* both ends of the tube are notched

2. Opened part and converted into sheet metal

3. Used the following tutorial: URL...

4. Was not working so I drew sketches on both ends of the notched tubing and added points 

5. Used rip tool (point to point) and did not work 

* I made sure the thickness was the same 

I thought I was doing something wrong so I generated a new round tubing frame with only 1 end notched and the other end flat and followed the tutorial. IT WORKED! I have came to the conclusion that you can not use the rip tool on tubing that has both ends notched.Is there a way where I can cut the tubing in half so I have 2 individual pieces/files of tubing with 1 end flat and 1 end notched?

CorelDRAW X5 :: Font Conversion To Outlines

Apr 10, 2012

We get .eps files from a customer and the fonts have been converted to "outlines" or "curves". This one font they used is Avant Garde Condensed and whenthe lowercase letters "f" and "i" are used together like in the word "fish" are connected together with no dot over the "i" (see attachment).

My question is this:

Is this supposed to look this way (see attachment) is this some sort of special character in the Avant Garde font family? Or is this some sort of freak accident caused by converting fonts to outlines?

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 :: Can't Select Multiple Text Objects

I can't seem to select more than one text object at a time.....

I will select a paragraph or artistic text object, press and hold shift, and then continue selecting text objects.  Nothing happens.... well, it seems to be 'thinking' but nothing ever happens until I release the shift key and then only the last object selected gets highlited.

Photoshop :: Sharp Text Outlines

Feb 1, 2005

I have a friend still using PS 5.5, OK, OK it's me. How would I create a SHARP outline around text or anything else. I've tried outerglow, stroke and expanding the selection. The problem is, wherever the font or shape has a sharp or 90 degree angle, the outline rounds off at that point.

Photoshop :: Outlines On 3d Block Text

Jun 28, 2009

I am trying to recreate a 'retro' style postcard, with 3d block lettering.  I was able to create the 3d text, but I'm got stumped when it came to getting an outline to run along all of the 'lines' of the text and shadow (I'm trying to make it look like old hand drawn block letters). I'm attaching an example of the look I'm going for, as well as where I got to before I was stumped. As you can see, I was able to get the outline for each letter to go around the entire letter and shadow, but I want each of the 'lines' to go around the letter, the shadow, and the lines connecting the two (like it is in the example).

Illustrator :: Text Getting Converted To Outlines When Saved As EPS 10

Mar 12, 2013

I am having a weird problem with some files I'm getting from a third party. They are created in CS4, then saved to EPS v.10. I need the text in the file to remain live, but every time it gets saved to EPS 10, it gets outlined. URL....
I have been able to verify that ligatures is sometimes the culprit, but I think there's something in the way this one person is creating the files that's causing the problem. I've opened hundreds of EPS 10 files from other users that have live type. Yet when I take this one person's original AI file and down-save it, the text gets outlined.
It's a very simple file - no transparency or other red flags that I can see. At first I thought maybe it was just the font, but I have used the same font in tests, and down-saved to v.10, with no text outlining.

CorelDRAW X5 :: Import / Open PDF - All Outlines Coming In With Transparency Applied

I've received floorplans from a client in PDF format. When I import or open the PDF, all of the outlines are coming in with a transparency applied to them (see attached png). I can't work with the file like this because DRAW is just choking. There are thousands of these lines and I can't figure a way to remove the transparency from all the outlines.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 12 :: Converting CDR File To PDF Which Contains Objects / Text With Fountain Fills?

Jul 30, 2012

For some reason I am having issues converting a CDR file to PDF which contains objects/text with fountain fills.

I have looked at some previous posts detailing the same problem, have followed their remedies, i.e. "render complex fills as bitmaps" in the advanced tab in the PDF conversion pane. Despite these best efforts I am still having the problem of my black background; fixed in the "page layout" tab being corrupted, resulting in the background being the fountain fill once converted.
