Search and Replace for Colors to Get the Perfect Match

September 22, 2014

I spoke with a loyal reader recently who was having trouble using the right shade of color to enable cutting on a laser engraver. The answer was relatively simple and could be rectified using the Replace Wizard shown below. For more details on the process, read the Using the Proper Colors in CorelDRAW, Including Black post from a few months ago.

You need to know the exact color value you want to replace. In this example, it was C0 M100 Y100 K0, which most of us would call Red. Choose that value in the Find drop-down. Then Replace with R255 G0 B0 which is the RGB version of Red.

Replace Wizard Colors

Once you’ve chosen the exact values for the colors you want to replace, press Finish and then Replace All. It may take a few seconds for all occurrences within the file to be swapped and then you’ll be all ready to go. While this example deals with a cut line color for a laser engraver, you can use it to replace any colors you desire!
