Anything involving CorelDRAW merges is of interest to me. Since, at macromonster.com we have 3 different macros for merging images. The one I helped develop, the most powerful, is called monstermerge.
Anyway, there was a question in the CorelDRAW forums regarding basic text:
“I’m attempting to create a tag system that will have a 5 digit number, but must be printed as shown below:
We have to create a file to be engraved that has 2000 consecutive numbers. We can’t figure out how to make them appear stacked using the merge feature. Any ideas?”
My creative solution:
- rotate field
- select and rotate characters 90 degrees
- increase spacing
- make sure field is center justified
- center field on page
- merge to new doc
if you need a file with leading zeros, numbergen makes awesome merge data for CorelDRAW.
