Locating “Missing” Tools in CorelDRAW

Doug Green is the man behind Express Yourself Austin and countless CorelDRAW tutorials on YouTube. A master crafter, Green sometimes spends hours upon hours, if not years, to create unique and elaborate items out of wood and metal.

On the main issues I hear from people with CorelDRAW is when they say, I can’t find “that” tool. Most of the time, it’s because they have an object selected and the tool is not on the screen because the tool bar has changed for what is selected.

For instance, if you have text selected, then your text tools show up. When you have a rectangle selected, then the tool that you need to change the rectangle shows up. When an object is selected, some tools are not visible. With nothing selected, it will show the page info including page size, units, and tools like Nudge Distance and Duplicate show up.
