Macro Monday: Coupon Creator

June 15, 2009

If you have ever tried to create the border for a coupon in CorelDRAW, you might have gotten very frustrated. When using the dashed lines, it is extremely difficult to get the corners to line up perfectly. I created a coupon for CorelDRAW Unleashed Boot Camp by thinking outside the box and not using outlines at all. If you want the coupon, it comes inside my CorelDRAW X4 Unleashed book.

The folks at have come to the rescue with the Coupon Creator macro. It will create perfect corners on your coupon every time. It will end round the line caps on the dashes! Do you want a fill in the background? It can create the background rectangle for you! Do you want a scissors icon? Yes, you can do that too!
