Greetings, I'm trying to make a simple line of code that inserts a symbol I created and then moves it. Below is what I have and it seems to not like the syntax I'm using. Can someone tell me why it doesn't like my code or how I can get it to read it. I would be forever thankful!
'The standard code to insert a symbol should be:'ActiveLayer.CreateSymbol(X, Y, "SYMBOL NAME", LIBRARY)
Sub Macro() ActiveLayer.CreateSymbol(X:=1, Y:=1, SYMBOL1, SYM_LIB.CSL) ActiveDocument.ReferencePoint = cdrCenter ActivePage.Shapes.All.CreateSelection ActiveSelection.SetPosition 1#, 1#End Sub
create a shape and convert it to symbol. Remove it from CorelDraw's desktop. Then open the Symbol Manager and name your symbol to "MySymbol". After that you can execute the following code:
Dim s As Shape
Set s = ActiveLayer.CreateSymbol(2, 2, "MySymbol")
There is no need to select and move shape, you can immediately set the desired coordinates
