New editing PowerClip

I would like the next version of Draw for expansion editing functions PowerClip. And that could move objects without PowerClip entry into the editing interface.

 

The current method of editing (Ctrl + click) – keep

A new way of editing (like Ctrl+Shift + click) – add

  • Hi.

    I'm not sure why you cannot make complex selection like this from the object manager. The shapes, levels deep are shown but not selectable.

    The new version of my commercial macro GDG Color Click will be able to select shapes within powerclips based on color and you will be able to manipulate them no matter how many levels deep. It will be released soon.

    Here's a sneak preview.

    Hi,

    I appreciate your efforts to improve CorelDraw. However, your path seems too complicated and therefore confusing. He loses the intuitive. I think the single-level direct editing will be easier and better for work.

    Essential for me is, I could move the object inside the PowerClip and also saw the graphics around this object.

    Sincerely
    Karel

    Sounds very interesting, thanks

  • Beautiful, what a surprise when I clicked in DrawX6 on the PowerClip with pressing the Alt key. Super!!

    What does Alt-clicking do?

    If you click on a PowerClipped shape ....when the mini toolbar appears below the selected Powerlip... the second button from the left is "Select PowerClip Contents". Press that and you can manipulate the contents without entering Edit PowerClip mode.

    Best regards,
    Brian.

    – This can be done just by holding the Alt key.

    Select PowerClip contents will select all the objects inside the container where as Alt click object will let you edit individual objects without entering PowerClip edit mode. Pretty handy.
