Need to draw a rectangle in CorelDRAW? There are several tools you can use for this. The Polygon tool will draw a triangle if you select three sides on the Property Bar. But this is not a right triangle. The Bézier tool or Freehand tool could do it, but getting the nodes in the correct places could be tricky. The Smart Drawing tool allows you to quickly draw it freehand and have it converted into a triangle. This works, but accuracy is certainly an issue. There is definitely a right triangle in Perfect Shapes you can use.
My answer? I cheat! Draw a rectangle, convert it to curves (Ctrl + Q) and delete the corner node that you do not want. This leaves you with a right triangle. Sometimes you’ll find the best tool for the job is the one that does not exist.
