Can someone tell me if there is a way to generate quickly in CorelDraw X7 a random dot pattern? I mean something akin to what you see in illustrations for "snowy skies" or star fields. I'm hoping there is a way to do so with random position and size of dots, and could have sworn there was a way to do this, but my lack of CorelDraw skill is shining through. lolTIA
Might try this macro. It takes whatever shape you select (circle or other) and randomly fills the page with different sizes of that shape. Might take some practice but one could either alter the code or run the macro several times to get what you want.
Sub FillRandShapes()Const MaxSize = 15Const MinSize = 5Dim s As Shape, X#, Y#, w#, h#, z& ActiveDocument.Unit = cdrMillimeter ActivePage.GetBoundingBox X, Y, w, h Randomize Set s = ActiveShape: If s Is Nothing Then Exit Sub For z = 1 To 100 Set s = s.Duplicate s.SetPosition X + Rnd * w, Y + Rnd * h s.SetSize Rnd * MaxSize + MinSize NextEnd Sub
I can't think or remember anyway to do it natively in CD, but there is this macro that can generate random circles, squares or triangles...RandomShapes macro~Patti
mesh fill background with random dots
instead of dots I used an 8 point star and added some "glow" here & there.
Myron...How can I get this to work in CD 2020? I haven't installed anything but versions 2018 and 2020 on my new laptop.Patti
