QR Codes in CorelDRAW – Variablestool 2

Written by Jeff Harrison
February 19, 2014

If you have CorelDRAW X5 or higher and need to create Custom QR Codes from a database, this is a great solution (the only one I know about at time of this blog post).

Variablestool 2 outputs pure vector shapes right inside CorelDRAW, and can even weld the resulting black squares so that the final code has an optimized node count.

This macro also offers more functions such as variable imaging. That’s another story…

For the example above, I made a simple .txt file with this content:

item 1   
item 2   
item 3   
item 4   
item 5   
item 6   
item 7

And ran the macro. Yay!

So I hear you groaning… “Ooooo, I want this, but it’s gotta be 200.00 or something”. Normally it would (and should) be. However, if you’ve been following macromonster.com for the last 7 years, you already know that we offer unbeatable value to extend CorelDRAW in amazing ways.

My friends, how about less than 50.00 USD, and for that price I’ll even give you 2 system codes! It’s unbeatable for something this specialized and powerful.

Order it today!
