Is the VBA module in student coreldraw suite 2019? If not can it be added or do I have to purchase the non-student version?
I am not aware of a way to add VBA capability to the "Home and Student" version of CorelDRAW.
To the best of my knowledge, the "Education" version of CorelDRAW is "full featured". If you qualify to use that, it's a great way to go for non-commercial use.
Corel customer service pointed me to https://www.coreldraw.com/static/cdgs/product_content/cdgs/hs2019/compare-versions/coreldraw-home-student-2019-comparison-matrix-en.pdf There are differences and I'm not sure if they will impact me. I'm trying to create some woodworking templates to a 1:1 scale, e.g. when I print them I want them to be printed to scale so I can glue them to Baltic Birch Plywood or MDF and cut the template to size. I need to save the CorelDraw file as an image file such as a PNG. I have received such from other woodworkers and it worked perfectly. I'm not a commercial woodworker but I did take classes as a student at a college.
I found a macro (sm_autosize) that will allow you to scale a CorelDraw file to a 1:1 scale at http://macromonster.com/. However, if the student version does not support VBA then I cannot use it.
On the link above they show CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2019 and CorelDRAW Home & Student Suite 2019 in two distinct different boxes. When I search the internet I do find "CorelDRAW Home & Student Suite 2019 " MFR CDHS2019EFMBAM. I also find the package that looks like CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2019 (MFR CDGS2019EFDP) and labeled CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2019 For Windows – Education Edition (MFR CDGS2019MLDPA) and CorelDraw Graphics Suite 2019 for Windows (Academic) (I could not find the MFR number for this).
Because the MFR is different I don't know if it is correct to assume that there is some difference.
In the "Excluding Pro Features" footnote on that comparison matrix, they note, "Macro Manager disabled". So, no VBA in Home and Student.
Keep in mind that some things you might do with macros, you might be able to accomplish using CorelDRAW's native capabilities - perhaps not as easily. It all depends on what you want to do, and what Home and Student provides for tools and capabilities. I've never used it, so I don't know much about the limitations beyond what they show in that comparison matrix.
AH, I did not see that..... Much thanks!!!! Now I know what I need to do.
Also I had a chat with Corel rep he stated "Okay. Education version will be same as the fuller version but cannot used as commercial purpose."
From this statement I assume that the "Education" and "Home & Student" described in the above link are two different products. I did not press for clarification but perhaps should have.
On the Corel website I downloaded and installed the trial for CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2019 (https://www.coreldraw.com/en/product/coreldraw/?topNav=en) and CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2019 For Windows – Education Edition (https://www.coreldraw.com/en/product/education-edition/) the initial file that is downloaded is different for each but when you execute each, both will result in downloading and installing the same file. I did not try downloading the Home & Student (I could not find a link for such)
Yes, "Education" is totally different from "Home and Student".
As I noted in an earlier message, if you qualify to use the Education version, it's a great deal.
I do qualify for the Education version and will be using it for woodworking classes. It will be overkill for what I need but I may actually learn something new. Thanks for the help.
You might want to check some of the content in my blog here on the Community forum: Eskimo's Macros and More.
Some of the macros that I've shared there might be of interest to you.
Just to confirm the Education Edition version does have the support for macros.
Yesterday night I took a closer look at your Macros, like WOW!!!! I've downloaded everything and watched several videos. Much thanks for your efforts. I prefer the video where you narrate, I find it much easier to follow along. Now I just need to install them and learn to effectively use them. Although I'm just doing woodworking drawings I will find them helpful. I'll be bouncing between CorelDraw and SketchUp for my drawings. Currently, I'm working on a rocking chair for children and pullout cabinets for my workshop. About two years ago I moved and had to leave behind my pullout cabinets and really need the storage area. The loss was a much bigger hit than I expected.
BTW how do I access Alex Vakulenko's Oberon Place forum? I've searched and some of the links are not working or I get the following
