Default How to write a processing macro?

I have never used Corel macros before, but would like to know if it's possible to create a macro to do the fillowing:

1. Open a text file containing a list of 150 names
2. Select the first name in that list
3. Create a 6" diameter circle
4. Select Fit Text to Path on that circle
5. Plug in the name selected in step 2 above
6. Format the name to ARIAL 24 pt font
7. Convert text to curves
8. Select next name from the file, and goto Step three (above)

Anyone ever done anything like this before?

Thanks very much,
Ed in Columbus, OH

I've not done it, but rest assured, this can be done. Shelbym really know how to write to and read from text files. Also try searching the forums for topics that cover read/write operations.

Default Sampe File Request

Would you please post a sample file with the names. Are there always 150?

Thanks,

Shelby
