    Hey all,

    I have a task that I perform in corel draw very frequently and I was wondering if there is a way to make a macro for it, I figured someone on here would know, or might be able to help.

    That being said, I'm not familiar with how to make a macro.

    Layer 1
    Original cut contour lines
    Layer 2
    Bleed contours, .25" around the cuts These are all powerclipped artwork
    Layer 3
    Nested contours, copied from Layer 2

    Process:
    Pick one of the objects on Layer 3, taking note of the angle of rotation.
    Find corresponding items on layers 1/2, select those two objects.
    Change Layer 1/2 items angle of rotation to match that of the item from Layer 3. (I type this in by hand)
    Shift+(select the item from Layer 3)
    C - Center Horizontally
    E - Center Vertically

    Do this for all of the items

    Is there a way to simplify all of this?

    A macro can be written to do most anything, including your problem. Whether or not you can do it depends on your knowledge of Visual Basic and the Corel operating environment.

    Head over to the Corel Forums and ask your question there.
