Can anyone tell me how I import a speech balloon - CorelDRAW X4 won't let me import one from the Extras\Content\Fonts\Symbols\TrueType\BALLOONS.TTF file
I want to place a balloon on a drawing then add text - anyone out there know how this is done..?
BTW - Noobsville roolz apply - so be precise..
From the menu: Text->Insert Symbol. (Or press F11).
Since the balloon is a character within a font, you have to treat the balloon as a font symbol, and insert it as if you were inserting a text character, in your drawing.
Peter, like Hugh explained, and as you can see from the link you referred to, the file is a ttf, font file.
You can either treat it like a piece of text..............or probably better in your case, open the Symbol's docker, find the balloon that you want and simple click and drag it onto your workspace.
It will then behave just like a graphic element.
Hope that helps.
Let us know if you need more help/clarification.
That would be ideal - only one problem, the symbol doesn't appear in the Docker
- how do I import the Symbols info into the docker in the first place..
Let's see if I can explain visually.
First go to the "Text" box on the top and then select "Insert Symbol Character";
Find the Balloon font;
Click and drag the balloon of your choice (first box in my sample) onto your work area.
There you go.
