  • 2. Instructions for installing samples The samples diskette at the back of this book contains: 4 Sample and exercise files referenced in this book. 4 Fonts required for the exercises. Simply run the file called SETUP from this diskette. The following dialog box will appear. Simply click the button and follow instructions from there. When properly installed, the following occurs: 4 C:RetlabCorel 10Samples is created and contains the samples called for in the exercises. 4 C:RetlabCorel 10Train is created for you to store files which you create. 4 Sample fonts used in the training are loaded. Additional Preparations If you are using this book, you are either: 1. Offering a training class 2. Using the book as a self-tutorial. In either case, we wrote the book as if you are a starting CorelDRAW for the first time afresh. Of course, it’s very possible that you are learning or training on a computer on which CorelDRAW has already been used so it may be necessary to restore the settings back to their original state before begin- ning the training. It’s really quite simple, even if you are new to CorelDRAW. Simply start CorelDRAW and invoke the F8 key as you do. This will restore CorelDRAW to its original settings. We hope you enjoy your RETLAB Training Manual. Feel free to write, e-mail or call us with your comments. page iii
