I don’t use layers often in CorelDRAW. For my workflow, I just don’t find a great need for them. Today I’m going to describe a way that I think they can come in handy for you.
Create a layer named “Notes” or something to that effect. If you are using CorelDRAW X4, you’ll have to create that layer on each page of your document. Like many of you, I’m not crazy about the new layer behavior. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about that. Once you have created the Notes layer, go into the Object Manager Docker and make that layer visible and not printable.
Now that you have the layer, you can put any notes about the project on that layer. You’ll be able to see them on screen, but they won’t print or export. If you find they are getting in your way, make the layer invisible as well. You can always make it visible again later. And if you find you need to print the notes, make the layer printable and print it.
