Another question (just posted a problem with PDF output - this is a different question.):
Besides generating PDFs for producing silk-screens I'm also generating PNGs or JPGs for renderings within Solidworks.
I create the silk-screens in CorelDraw using Black for the lines and text. But the ink will be printed white on a grey painted surface and I want to bring them into Solidworks as white lines and text. If I take the Corel jpg (or png) out as Black text and lines and import into Solidworks I get this, which is not what I want:
How can I change the text and lines to white as I am using File > Export in CorelDraw?
One way to approach that would be to use a Color Style in CorelDRAW, so it's easy to change the definition of "that color". Objects that use "that color" should update when such a change is made.
It's sort of like using a parameter in a CAD model rather than an explicit value.
I'm having a hard time following you. You mention jpg/png but also Corel. Are you starting with vector art in Corel then exporting out as jpg/png?
If it's all vetor to begin with and all your black text is in fact text i.e. not converted to curves, then you can go Edit/Select All/Text then click on the white in your palette.
Line would be a bit different. Edit/Find and Replace/Find Objects
Agree, you could also (in corel) create a separate layer and drag all your text to it, switch off all other layers, select all text change its color. If live text is causing issues, select it all and the convert to curves before exporting it.
I could change the color with either a Color Style or put stuff on another layer but I am wondering if there is something in the export settings choices that I am missing that could change black to white at that point. Apparently not, or you guys would have suggested it.
Short of that I guess the Color Style way might be good for my purposes. I'll look into using that. I've never done that.
BTW, do you guys have any idea why I am not able to output the lines in the PDF? That's the other question I posted today... (maybe I didn't actually post it as a Question and instead posted it as a Discussion - what is the effective difference here.)
this one has me stuck.
