What is Quick Export?
Quick Export can quickly export content in .JPG or .PNG format with a minimum of drama.
See Quick Export in use (2 Quick Demos):
Using the macro: A few comments.
Don't leave the userform visible when you aren't using it.
When the userform is visible, then every time that CorelDRAW fires the SelectionChange event, the macro evaluates the current selection and updates the userform. So, you really don't want to leave the userform visible when you are not busy using it to export bitmaps. Open it, do your exporting, and then close it.The reason the macro works that way, rather than "once and done", is to make it useful for users who have to perform multiple exports. That might be multiple graphical assets (select, export, select, export, select, export...) or it might be the same graphical asset at multiple sizes (select, set dimension, export, set dimension, export, set dimension, export...).
If you leave the userform visible all the time, then you may observe that the automatic updates of the userform interfere with the normal operation of some CorelDRAW tools.
Using the Comboboxes.
The boxes for numeric entry are comboboxes. The drop-down list for a combobox can contain values stored for convenient access. If a combobox is not locked, then when a value in thatcombobox is used by the macro, that value is added to the top of the list. If an existing value is used from the list, then that value is moved to the top of the list. Values can also be manually added to the list.
Ctrl+clicking on a combobox sets that combobox to its default value.
Right-clicking on a combobox brings up a menu of options for managing it.
These options may include:

Quick Export Subs in the Macro Manager.
Quick Export was put together in a CorelDRAW X7 environment, and should work in versions X7-2020.
OK, where's the macro?
JQ_Quick_Export_Current.zip (most recently updated 2020-06-23).
That includes the .GMS file and a simple icon that can be used on a CorelDRAW Toolbar.
If Use Desktop for folder is not checked, then the save dialog should launch pointing to the last folder that was used for exporting.
So, if you use that save dialog to navigate to a specific folder and export to there, that folder should be the one initially shown in the save dialog the next time you export.
Is there a way to choose which directory the exported file is saved in besides the desktop?
Nice, very useful.
