Beatriz Mariniello


March, 2007

In this tutorial we will show you how to use guidelines while you are working with Corel Draw. Tutorial Includes project files.

Lets create a New Guideline
Click on the vertical ruler and drag a vertical guideline onto your page.
Position the guideline where you require and release the mouse button.
Click on the horizontal ruler and drag to place a horizontal guideline in the same way

Now lets set the Snap to Guidelines:
Choose View/Snap to Guidelines in the Main Menu. This will assign a magnetic quality to your guideline. When an object is moved close to the guideline it will snap into place without exact positioning.

Now, lets position an Object Using Guides:
Create a vertical guideline.
Please, make sure that the snap to guidelines is turned on (as shown above).
Click and drag an object near the guideline and it will snap to it. Try this with several objects. This feature is a great time saver for aligning objects.

How to Snap Guidelines to Grid
You can speed up exact guide placement if you have a grid established for your document.
Choose View/Snap to Grid while you set up your guidelines.
Your guides will snap to the grid easily, and once you have the guides positioned, turn off the snap to grid.

Its a very important tutorial for you to make your drawings in Corel, You can do it!!
