On a black and white image, is there a way to calculate how much black and how much white is used?
Are you talking about the DMAX of the darkest area or what percentage of the area is covered in black?
Sorry, I'm needing the answer in square mm.
Yes, with a macro. I have a simple one that gives area of shape in sq mm.
Hi Myron, sounds good, are you able to share? I'm not familiar with macros so would also need some help with that.
There you go Myron has a simple solution like
Sub AreaOfShapeMM()ActiveDocument.Unit = cdrMillimeter MsgBox Round(ActiveShape.DisplayCurve.Area, 2) & " Sq mm"End Sub
1. Open Macro Manager docker (Alt+shift+F11) or Windows/Dockers/Macro Manager2. Right-click on Visual Basic for Applications & choose New Macro Project.3. Name the file with no spaces i.e. AreaOfShapeMM to C:\Users\Myron\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X7\Draw\GMS Hit Save.4. You’ll see it pop up at the bottom of the Macro Manager list, click off off it then right click and choose New Module.5. Click off the the New Module then right-click on it and choose New Macro6. Copy/paste all code given over the “Sub Macro1() End Sub”7. Select a shape then double-click the macro8. Now you can assign a keyboard shortcut of your choosing to it. Right-click on the macro from the Macro Manager and choose Assign Keyboard Shortcut.9. type the shortcut you want in and hit assign.
I've done that, not sure if it is working, where do I see my results, do I need to open something?
open macro manager, find your macro, select the shape you want to get the sq mm, double-click the macro
