CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X3 :: Making Nodes On A Default Curve

Oct 3, 2012

This has been a feature in CorelDraw for as long as I can remember so I'm hoping that buried in options or customize it can be changed.

When you draw a curved line, the nodes default to Symmetrical rather than Smooth. Symmetrical nodes adjust both sides of the curve when you move the node selection handles which I rarely use. Smooth allows you to adjust once side of the node without effecting the other but still maintaining an in line alignment.

if you can make nodes on a curve default to Smooth rather than Symmetrical?

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 :: Auto Close Tolerance

Jan 3, 2013

I have a series of complex shapes that look like solid shapes but they are separated. When I try to auto close, the lines shoot all over the place. The open ends of the lines are physically touching or at least very close.

Can you set a tolerance so that two lines touching each other connect?

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Auto Close Gaps Button On Toolbar

Apr 18, 2011

I have seen a reference to the auto close gaps button on the toolbar of CorelDraw.I need something like that, because whatever I do I cannot fill my lineart with the smartfill tool, even though I have closed all the gaps, as far as i can tell.

I am wondering if there is a problem with my Coreldraw X5 Software.I am using it on an iMac with Parallels.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Resize From Center Using Nodes

Oct 4, 2012

I'm trying to find a way to do this:

Make an object (eg an hexagon), and resize it from it's center radially, by dragging a node (and not those black squares). What I got so far, is, using the pick tool, clicking on it to go to rotation mode, hold shift and ctrl, clicking on a node (eg, from a point or the middle of a side), and dragging it.

It works IF i change it's angle, but strangely, if I keep the same angle (just resizing it), nothing happens, neither it gets resized, neither i can clone it (with right mouse click). It only keeps a blue shadow of what would be the object, without doing nothing.

What I want to do with this is, for example, create a square and an hexagon inside it, allign one of it nodes with a node of the square, and resize the hexagon by draggin another node of it until it touch (using snap to objects) another side/node of the square. As I said, it can be done if I resize by the rotation, but only if I change the angle, wich is strange for me.

Am I missing something? It's really weird that I can almost do this without problems, but then nothing happens at all. I wish I could show this visually, would be way better to explain the problem.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Reducing / Smoothing Nodes?

Oct 18, 2011

Trying to recreate logo. Traced text. The text is too rough. I've selected it, click the shape tool, and the Smoothing bar does not work. It stays at "0" and does not effect the selected curve.

I've tried just drawing a shape with jagged edges and the Smoothing bar still does not work. Am I missing a step to make the Smoothing bar apply?

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 12 :: Connecting Two Nodes Of Different Objects

Oct 23, 2012


I'm working in Corel Draw 12 and I have a problem to connect two nodes of different lines which aren't the nodes at the beginning or end of the lines. That problem I've solved, (by selecting both lines, then using function combine, selecting for e.g. starting node of first and ending node of second line and joining them) but I really have hard time making this out.  The function join isn't apparently working for nodes in the middle of the lines.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Nodes Vanish While Editing In Wireframe

Oct 16, 2013

So I will jump right to the issue. I like to make my edits occasionally in wireframe, and as I began to manipulate or move nodes around, the minute I finish editing the first node or a group of nodes, all of the nodes vanish. The only thing that is present in wireframe after they disappear is the object (or line that I am editing) no nodes.

Now, I have learned that if I zoom in or out, they appear again, I would have to continuously do this in order to make edits in wireframe. I do not have this problem in Enhanced View. 

Windows 8 / ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series / AMD Phenom II X4 965

My graphic card is up to date; however, I dont believe this is a graphic issue due to the fact that I can edit in Enhanced view without issues.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Polyline Tool Double Nodes In One Click

I would like to know if some users have the same problem : when I vectorize manually a bitmap with the polyline tool of CorelDraw X6, sometimes I have two nodes very close (I don't understand why because I do one click with my mouse...). I change my mouse without improvement.Do you know a macro to clean my polylines and to transform the "double" nodes in a single node (adjusting the gap distance) ? The reduce nodes feature in CorelDraw is not nice to do that.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 :: Printing Objects Too Close Together?

Jun 3, 2013

Print preview shows objects spaced correctly.  But when it prints them, it compresses them together on the page (but the objects are sized correctly).

When I print the same file from a different computer on the network to the same printer, the objects are spaced correctly.

Which leads me to conclude it's a setting in CorelDraw on the first computer.  Also, I reset all the default settings in CorelDraw using the F8 technique, but that didn't solve the problem.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Program Seems To Just Randomly Close?

When using CorelDraw x5 the program seems to just randomly close, with no error message or freezing. It just disappears from the screen and I have to re-open it. I cannot pin point when it is doing it, because it keeps closing upon random tasks, not like it closes every time I try the same thing like saving.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Glacially Slow To Save And Close

Sep 22, 2013

CorelDRAW X6 has been lovely and fast for me these last few months but the reason I quit Corel for a number of years was that, after a while it seemed to slow down. Now, suddenly, when I save a file of exit the program freezes for approx 35 seconds before finally closing. It makes no difference where I save the file (on my SSD C Drive or elsewhere). I have a 6 core, 32gb RAM etc and, as I was saying, it worked until today but suddenly this.

Any macro that will close the Object Manager Docker then re open it again?  Due to the bug with it, the objects in it disappear, or the icons for visible and print stop toggling, so I have to close it and reopen it.  Tried recording one, but the recorder ignored my closing and opening.  Just thought it would be handy, for when it locks up like that to press one button, rather multiple buttons and menus.

when i cut vectors letters and numbers, its cuts but at every character it does not seem to completely fill the edges. so i always have to use my small nt cutter to do that.

i read the manuals, changed the offset, reduced the cut speed, increased the pressure and even convert to curves before i cut but the problem does not go away. the company where i bought it from is not very useful.

maybe because the machine is chinese i have a creation pcut ct630 vinyl cutter.also in coreldraw, i always use "harline" when cutitng anything is it correct?

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Crashed (Corel ARM) When After Exporting JPG Close The File

Apr 25, 2011

I have a major problem with PhotoPaint X5 after SP2. I have an image of a movie poster from internet. Let's say about 1000x1500 pixels. I make the width 300 px. (height will be 440 or more) Than I make a new document of 300x430 pixels. Copy and paste the first file into the second. Move it up and/or down with the arrow keys to have a good composition. Than I combine the image with the background (shift/control/arrow down) and save it to rest.jpg. When I want to close the original image in CorelPaint I get the Corel A.R.M. window. I tried a few times without combining the image to the background and than I CAN close the file without crashing PP. I'm glad I found a workaround since I do these actions quit a lot for my movie and music database. But it took a lot a time to figure out where it went wrong. So according to my tests it must have something to do with combining the image to the background. Sometime when nudging the image a couple of times up and down crashses PP too when I then combine the image and background. At that point i don't come a far as exporting.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Convert To Curve (with Handles)

Mar 23, 2012

Is there a way to convert to curve (with handles)? I Ctrl+Q on a object, then it say convert to curve. But it's a bunch of segments. When I drag them they don't have curve handles, they don't curve. I have again to click on a segment, a * appear. Then click To curve in the property bar.

Can I just put curve handles in one shoot to all the segments of a object (ex a square)? Without to have to do all 4 segments one by one?

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Curve Object On Status Bar

Sep 18, 2013

I have this weird problem where some objects won't work like the usual. The original pic is like this,but when I see it in thumbnail in windows explorer, some objects are missing but they're still there when you open the file!

I marked the status bar, in those missing objects it says "Curve on Desktop" while other objects of corelDraw, no matter what kind of file, they're always written as "Curve on Layer 1".

 And then when I Ctrl+G all the objects above in pic 1, all those objects with Curve on Layer 1 and Curve on Desktop, it becomes like this: I don't know what happened. When I made the shape in the 1st pic, I used old file with similar shape, I only edit the sizes & the colors, but previous File is just fine, only this one looks weird.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: How To Draw Line Not A Curve

Feb 26, 2012

I used polyline to trace a tree trunk.  I wanted it to be just a series of line segments which I was going to export to AutoCAD and then to Sketchup.  However, each segment I drew said it was a curve.  When I exported to AutoCAD it came in as a spline.  If I convert that to lines, where I had maybe 10 lines there are now 100.

I also tried to 2 point line tool.  I started each new line from the end of the previous.  It gave me the same result.

Is there a way for me to end up with just the 10 line segments?  No spline.  No curve.  Just 10 straight lines.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Line Vs Curve With Arrow On End?

Feb 12, 2011

I know this has been in Draw for a long while, but I wish they'd make the arrow tip start at the end of a curve. 

steps to reproduce:

F7, draw a curve

draw a line

change both to have an arrow on one end

change both to 16px thickness so you can see the arrow position well

This problem comes up when I'm doing a detailed diagram and I've got my arrows going around all over the place.  I need to tweek one so I convert to curve... but in doing so, the end of the arrow sticks out farther than it used to... and that forces me to change the postions and angles of possibly a few nodes.

I'd like the arrow to end at the node so there's no change in it's position when you do a convert to curves.

This is one of those... "that's not a bug, it's been around forever" type of things I know, but it should be changed IMHO.

I should mention that this is also a pain when you go in with the node edit tool when the line isn't selected and you can't see the nodes... you click around at the end, and eventually find it hiding in the center of the arrow/triangle part.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Macro To Round / Curve Text

Aug 24, 2012

Here's a macro I've used for quite some time. Feel free to use or modify as needed. Install, select text and run. Hold shift and the selected text will round/curve more.

Why I created? I do a lot of graphics that need the top line of text to be curved. I can easily select the top line and press a button and the macro curves it upwards. If I need more curve I hold shift and run. If I need more or less curve still, I make the item in question, the text, larger or smaller. All done by eye and it's fast.
