Im having some problems, i bought some black and white designs that i would like to use.I got them in CDR files and can open them in my CD X7.They look great, the only problem is: The designs are a mess!
When i outline the design red, I see the following problems:Black areas not welded, no problem = Ungroup and weld themWhite areas are still there, no problem = Minus themMy biggest problem is taht some black lines in the design, are outline only.I know I can ungroup and Convert outline to object and weld also.
I am hoping there is a way or a macro that could save me alot of time and work.I think its easyer to lay down a new outline for the whole design.I dont want to save it JPEG or PNG and trace it, it will lose quality.
Does someone has an idea how to solve this? I think its a waist of time to do it all by hand.
Thanks for now!
Also covert to bitmap and tracing it, gives me a lower quality :(
What is your ultimate goal? Why do the elements need to be welded?
I want to make a wall decal of it, i use the red outline for cutting lines
Now I understand the need. Unfortunately I see no way around it. You can select all and hit cntrl+shift+q to convert all outlines at once then go in and weld as needed. Could also use the "SelectSame" macro to select all the "whites" and delete those. Probably many other time savers but an all in one......hmmm
I'm with Myron. Clever use of CorelDRAW's native tools - and perhaps some macros - may reduce the amount of work, but it's not easy to create a "brilliant" macro that can figure out how to handle the content and create the desired results better than a person can.
