I know that X4 isn't supposed to work with Windows 10 and I have run across some minor glitches (mostly cosmetic) until now. I have a number of drawings I have done over the years and occasionally I like to post them to relevant discussion forums on the Internet (one of which I administer) . In the past (when I was on Win 7) I would export the cdr to a transparent .png. Worked fine.
But since migrating to Win 10, I can no longer get a transparent background when i export to png. White is the default background and when I choose white to be transparent, everything seems as it should be and has been. But the result is not transparent at all the white background is still there.
Is ther a work around, an updated p.ng filter or any way to get a transparent background from CorelDraw X4 on Windows 10?
This should be all you need to do. You do have to ensure there isn't a shape behind it i.e. a white square etc.
I'm not sure I understand...It's just a drawing no background at all. Even if I move it off the "page" and try to export it, I get the same issue.
We need to understand your "drawing" first. Windows? Change to wireframe view and use the snipping tool and marquee the drawing. Copy then paste here.
This is gonna sound silly but I don't know how to use the snipping tool or how to marquee around the drawing
But here is a wireframe:
The problem seems embedded. If I start a new drawing and make a star, for instance and then export to .png, everything works a treat. But I have hundreds and hundreds, and years and years of drawings (most made in CorelDraw x4 albeit in Windows 7) that do not want to export to a transparent png.
And FWIW, if I convert one of these older drawings to svg and then open it in Inkscape, the same issue arises when I try to export to png.
Like I say the problem seems to be embedded.
I'm feeling a little desperate.
