I use the imposition layout tool all the time and find it very useful to create a single page PDF from multiple pages in a CorelDRAW file. I have ran into a little problem where I need the exact opposite of this tool. I have a CDR that contains 9 images per page, all perfectly symmetrical to each other. It's actually a card game layout, 9 cards per page, 3 rows and 3 columns. Each card measures 2.5in x 3.5in. All combined the page is 7.5in x 10.5in.
What I want to do is print to PDF or export as PDF, but just one card per page. The final product would be a multi-page PDF file where the page size is 2.5in x 3.5in and there would be one card per page. Is this possible somehow using CorelDRAW?

If each page has nine cards in exactly the same locations, then it might be possible to write a VBA macro to copy one card, create a new page of the desired size, paste the card on that page, etc. For each page in the original document, nine new pages would be created, with one card on each.
Are you using the regular version of CorelDRAW? Or the Home & Student version?
sonnaps said:That sounds interesting, I have never tried any VBA macros. I have the regular version.
If you would be willing to send me a file, then I am willing to try it. Contact me by private message if you wish.
For what I have in mind, I don't think the VBA part of it would be very difficult to write. I don't know if CorelDRAW will have any trouble with a large number of pages, but I could only find that out by trying.
