Macro Monday: Draw Color Helper

September 22, 2008

I guess this one doesn’t technically count as a macro since it is a standalone EXE file. But the main function of the program is to allow you to more easily enter both decimal and hex colors in CorelDRAW. Separate versions are available for CorelDRAW 11, CorelDRAW 12, CorelDRAW X3 and CorelDRAW X4.

Draw Color Helper is a free download. Read the instructions provided to learn how to install and use the program. Since Corel doesn’t give us the ability to work directly with hex colors in CorelDRAW, this is a tool that will fill in until Corel gives us the feature. Enjoy!

If you have suggestions for macros that I should feature, please drop me a comment and make suggestions.
