CHAPTER 10 Drawing and Editing Objects

If you thought learning to create basic and smart objects in Chapter 8 was fun and a learning experience, hold on: basic shapes will get your work only so far—CorelDRAW’s path-building and editing tools move your cursor toward exactly what you have in mind. The Curve tools group on the toolbox has specific tools for drawing paths of any shape you can imagine, and some you can’t! In the following sections, you’ll work through the process of editing lines and their nodes, so there’s no reason to draw something that’s close to what you need. This chapter is the DRAW part of CorelDRAW.
