One of the new features in CorelDRAW X5 that hasn’t received much publicity is the Macro Manager Docker. You can open it up by selecting Tools | Macros | Macro Manager or pressing Alt + Shift + F11. At first glance, it may not seem all that interesting. Sure, there is a list of all of the macros you have available. This is definitely more handy than having to go through several steps to get to the list.
You can also dig into the macros to see the Modules contained inside the macro’s GMS file. Even better, you can easily create a new GMS file. I can’t say it was hard to do before, but it was a multi-step process and was a bit of a hassle. When it comes time to record a macro, you can specify the macro and module where it will be stored. This is much easier than in the past.
I realize that only a small percentage of users will be creating macros. Yet even those of you who run macros will find this new Docker to be a real time saver. When you get a free minute, look it over and I think you’ll like what you see.
