Is there a way to have both Units of Measure in Inchs and mm, show up as rulers at the same time in corel x6
You can do this simply by yourself:
Define a 'Master-Unit', let's say mm
Create a small macro which draws – depends what grid you need – maybe each millimeter in Y-Direction
Copy this block for the Y-Direction:
Dim CurValue As Double, CurDelta As Double
Dim CurLy As Layer
ActiveDocument.Unit = cdrMillimeter
Set CurLy = ActiveLayer
CurDelta = 1
CurValue = 0
CurLy.CreateLineSegment CurValue, 0, CurValue, ActivePage.SizeHeight
CurValue = CurValue + CurDelta
Loop Until CurValue > ActivePage.SizeWidth
CurLy.CreateLineSegment 0, CurValue, ActivePage.SizeWidth, CurValue
Loop Until CurValue > ActivePage.SizeHeight
Create a new layer
Rerun the macro with a step width – also what you think to need – of 1/8 inch (in this case you have to divide 25.4 mm by 8)
CurDelta = 25.4 / 8
Then you have two layers with different grids you can show or hide as you need
i think i explained you wrongthis is what i am looking fori want to see the page size and object size in inch and mm at the same time.
To this accomplashion you can write a AppUI.xslt file, a UserUI,xslt file, CorelDrw.addon file and place in a folder, in CorelDraw Addons folder, I have makes a exemple for the object size.
I has updated this addon, now you can edit the unit pair in "<CDR AddonsPath>\DuplicateSizeSpinner\UnitPairs.xml", can add the name of unit or the value, check the DuplicateSizeSpinner/UnitEnum.cs at master · bonus630/DuplicateSizeSpinner (github.com),
the second units will be came the inverte of the original unit spinner following the schema in "UnitPairs.xml"
The code is in github, in C#, tested in X8, a addon project, please no ask for VBA code or another version
I love it when I am wrong. That is very cool. Very cool indeed! Well done!
OK, that is very cool. Thank you for sharing!
any idea of doing the same thing for for x6 version ?
Thanks, but my solution does not solved the issue of our friend
It is good to know that it will show the both measuring units if the document unit is set to inch. For millimeters, both boxes will show mm...
