A loyal reader recently asked me how to change the default outline to a hairline. Picking the thickness you want is pretty simple. The key is knowing how to change the default outline. With nothing selected in CorelDRAW, bring up the Outline Pen dialog box (just press F12). This will first trigger a dialog asking if you want to change the defaults for Graphic, Artistic Text or Paragraph Text. Make your selection, click OK and you’ll get the Outline Pen dialog box. Anything you select will become the new default for the current document. If you wish it to be the default for all new documents, select Tools | Save Settings as Default and it will affect every new file you create.
This is just one of the thousands of information nuggets you’ll find in my CorelDRAW X4 Unleashed book. The book may have an up-front cost, but it will deliver so much valuable information that it is an investment in boosting your productivity.
Speaking of business success, I wanted to give a shout out about a really good blog posted by the folks at Geekpreneur called How to Be a Lucky Entrepreneur. At times I have been accused of being lucky in business. Yet I think a large part of it has to do with my attitude and this post gives you some tips on how you can be lucky if you have the right attitude.
