Sorry, but I'm not sure to understand you correctly.
If you start a new document, go to File menu / import and select a JPG file, then place on the document, press F10 for select the shape tool and select one or two nodes, it should work. Remember that is not the same copy/paste than import, for example, and you must select just one image for crop it
Thank you Ariel. I appreciate your answer but when I dragged an image from my computer desktop to my Corel window, drew a circle, kept the circle on the image, selected both item and tried to trim but now all the shape tools are showing inactive.
that's because you're selecting BOTH. As I said before, you should select just one object at a time.
maybe what you want is to use the cricle for crop the image. I'm not sure if version 12.0 was capable of this feature, that exist on newest versions, but you should select the circle. hold down Shift, select the image, go to the property bar and choose "trim" or go Arrange / shaping / trim
you don't need to use the Shape tool, only the Pick tool
Thank you Ariel. That's what I did, I was trying to crop the circle from the image. I selected both the items but and the trim tool goes inactive.
try using Powerclip instead
FWIW - Trimming into bitmaps using shapes began with X3 (I think).
