Tutorial Coreldraw_2 Document Transcript

  • 1. Creating a layout Welcome to CorelDRAW®, a comprehensive vector-based drawing and graphic-design program for the graphics professional. CorelDRAW X5 has a layout for a z-fold (or accordion) brochure, but in this tutorial, you will create a layout for a barrel-fold brochure, which looks like this: Barrel-fold brochures are ideal when you want to display text and graphics across the folds of the brochure. This is what the final template layout will look like: Page 1 of 8 CorelDRAW tutorial
  • 2. What you will learn In this tutorial, you will learn • to change page orientation • to change the paper type • to add master layers • to set up bleeds • to set up print margins • to save a drawing as a template To begin the tutorial, you will create a new document and set the page properties. You will then add guidelines to set up the brochure pages. You will add a master layer. You can use master layers when you have content that you want to apply to all pages in a document. On the master layer, you will set up a bleed that ensures that no white space appears between the edges of the drawing and the edges of the paper after the document is printed. You will also set up a printing margin that will inset the brochure text from the edge of the page by creating rectangles to represent the printing margin. You will put the rectangles on a nonprinting layer so that you will be able to see and snap to them, without making them part of the final design. You will finish the tutorial by saving the drawing as a tri-fold barrel brochure layout. Throughout the tutorial, you will use rectangles to help you set up elements of the brochure. You will also use time-saving mathematical operators to quickly and precisely resize the rectangles. To set up the drawing 1 Click File New to create a new document. 2 In the Create a New Document dialog box, choose A4 from the Size list box, click the Landscape button to change the page orientation, and then click OK. 3 In the toolbox, double-click the Rectangle tool to create a rectangle that is the same size as the page. You will use this rectangle to help you set up guidelines to divide the drawing into brochure pages. 4 On the property bar type /3 after the number in the width section of the Object(s) sizes box to reduce the rectangle to one third of its original width 5 Ensure that the Lock Ratio button . is disabled and press Enter. The rectangle is centred on the drawing page, dividing it into equal thirds . 6 In the Objects Manager docker, click Guides under the Page 1 heading. 7 Click the vertical ruler and drag two guidelines, aligning them to both vertical edges of the rectangle.
