If you create an object in CorelDraw that is 5 x 5 inches. Then add a huge outline to it, the measurement still reads 5 x 5. In Illustrator there's a preference to measure just the main object, or to include the outlines in the measurement and control handles. Does CorelDraw have the same setting?
I believe you could have meant Corel Designer, which is included in CorelDRAW Technical Suite.Not sure though, have to check.
