Thursday Tip: Use the Settings Button

April 23, 2009

One of the best features in recent versions of CorelDRAW is the ability to Publish to PDF. This makes it very easy to create a file to send to others. Just yesterday I had someone call me completely stumped because fonts were not being embedded in the PDF files they were creating. That leads to today’s tip. Use the Settings button!

First, you’ll select File | Publish to PDF from CorelDRAW. This brings you to a dialog box that asks you to name the file. In the lower left you’ll find a list of Presets. Choose the one that most closely fits the file you are saving. But do not press the Save button just yet! Make sure you press the Settings button to bring you to a dialog box with numerous options. This is where the power of the feature can truly be unlocked. If you are unsure of what all those options do, I dedicate a chapter to the feature in my CorelDRAW X4 Unleashed ebook.
