I don't mean kerning or leading. I have a display font that I use a lot- but I always stretch it horizontally 105–120% in Quark Xpress to make it more legible. I can do something very similar in PhotoPaint by stretching the text "object" by a percentage, but I don't see how to do this in CorelDraw.
I could import images with the stretched text and "manually" stretch the new text to match it, but if there is a faster way to do this consistently, that would be great.
If you are talking about simple non-proportional scaling, that can be done to Artistic Text using the Scale and Mirror tab of the Transformations docker.
I am not aware of a way to "condense" or "expand" Paragraph Text in CorelDRAW and still have it remain Paragraph Text. A brute force approach might be to convert to Artistic Text or Convert to Curves, and then scale it non-proportionally.
Okay, the Transformations scale is exactly what I was looking for, thank you!Before you answered, I wound up multiplying the width of the text object in inches by 120% and changed the object width to that result.
