Default Automating Autotrace


I am transcribing an old dictionary and the woodcuts are reasonably poor, so will benefit from being autotraced. Although each file may further benefit from tweaking the settings, there are around 2,000! of them, so automation is the order of the day.
I believe CorelDRAW X3 is capable of this, but the macro recording is not even providing a starting point... especially as the language/syntax is akin to reading Hebrew to me!

I would therefore be eternally grateful for some (big) pointers/assistance in getting CorelDRAW to loop through a directory of files and spit out CDR or AI files with the same names.


I though I had looked in the right places, but I have found this which is of some help...

Is this a clients only forum or do I seem to have answered my own question?

Well, I thought you did answer your question

The post you quoted does show the methods you need to use to perform autotrace.

There is one more post on this topic:


I understand that you are not a programmer and might have difficulty implementing what you envision, so ask more specific questions about the problems you are having and we'll try to help.

Thanks for the reply and I will have a go. I have (some) bits, just need to learn how to glue them together...
