Urban Myths, CorelDRAW Users and a Tutorial

November 10, 2009

Today I have a few short messages to go along with the tutorial of the day.

Yesterday I got an e-mail from someone I don’t know. I can’t only guess it was a loyal reader. Yet it is the type of e-mail that all of us get too often. This particular message was talking about the worst virus ever and suggesting that it be sent to everyone you know to minimize the damage done by the virus. Yet it was nothing but a hoax just like almost every message you get that says “please forward to everyone you know”. It took me all of fifteen seconds to do a search on Google and to find numerous Web sites which dispelled the message.

Why am I telling you this story? Because the only way messages like this get stopped is if users stop forwarding them to everyone they know. If you get a message that sounds too good and/or too bad to be true and it is asking you to forward it, please do some research first! If you don’t want to do the research, don’t forward it!


I think there are times that we as CorelDRAW users feel bad because we don’t use the “industry standard”. I’ll save my speech on industry standards for another day, because the people who spread that label are misinformed. Anyways, I was as a party hosted by my printer the other day. I was chatting with someone that I knew was one of his customers and it came out that she used CorelDRAW. She was thrilled that she had met someone who knew all about CorelDRAW and could appreciate the smart decision she made to use it.


Today’s tutorial comes from Roy Brewer, an engraving equipment supplier, and it covers some great ways to use the Print Merge facility in CorelDRAW. It is a free video, so enjoy!
