Updated 22-07-2008 at 00:09 by Alex

A lot of people think of graphics design when they are talking about CorelDRAW. Printed ads, brochures, web sites, etc come to mind first. I wanted to share some things I use CorelDRAW and Designer for which might give you some more ideas

I like to build things myself. Some small (and not so small) projects happen every now and then. Like building a cabinet, small shelf or doing major construction project like finishing a basement. And each time I'm about to tackle a new project...

Macros and CorelDRAW X6 (64-Bit)

Posted 25-03-2012 at 19:27 by shelbym

Introduction

The good news in most macros from previous versions of CorelDRAW should work great. The one exception to this are macros that use WinAPI calls.

Introduction

With CorelDRAW X6 you can now create custom .NET controls that can be hosted in either a custom docker or the UI itself, including toolbars and menus.

Custom .NET Dockers in CorelDRAW X6

Posted 02-04-2012 at 00:38 by shelbym

Introduction

In the previous blog post we showed an example of a custom WPF control that was hosted in the UI of CorelDRAW. In this post we are going to take a Custom Web Docker that Hendrik had provided as an example and rewrite it as a Custom WPF .NET Docker.
