Thursday Tip: Go to the CD/DVD

January 15, 2009

When people install CorelDRAW X3 or X4, they will find that a variety of presets/content is available for features within the program. But what often gets overlooked is that there is even more on the CD/DVD. The full-color pattern fills are a good example. Forty-four of them get installed automatically. But there are 294 more on the disc that do not get installed. Bitmap pattern fills are very similar with 60 installed and 250 more on the disc. So before you go looking for additional content from others, look on the discs that came with the software for all kinds of goodies that you may not have known about.

For those who downloaded CorelDRAW, you won’t get all of that extra content. This is one of the primary reasons I always suggest you purchase the boxed version of CorelDRAW.
