This macro will reveal the length of a single selected curve. You can choose either inches or centimeters. If the curve has subpaths, they will be included in the total measurement. The macro is free. More info here.

    I would like to find a macro that I could use to measure the perimeters of objects. I have Corel Draw x4. I thought the curvelength macro might be what I need, but I don’t know if it’s free, and I don’t know how to download it.

    Thanks, Patrick

        Hey Jeff. Is there a version that works in corel 2017? I haven’t been able to get it to work as yet. When I was using X5, this was a macro I relied on a lot. Thanks for making it available!
