GDG Click It! Contours and Shadows

August 15, 2011

There are times where some of the more flashy effects get all the attention and the effects that are the bread and butter of a design get overlooked. Outlines are on most every object you create and sometimes they aren’t given much thought. Yet the right outline can add a lot to a design. Contours can also give the look of an outline, yet CorelDRAW’s native features don’t give you all the controls available behind the scenes. GDG Click It! Contours and Shadows makes it easy to get just the right outline or contour. One of the most desired outlines for some users is the cut contour and this macro will help you get the line you need much quicker.
