duplicating, and deleting objects
CorelDRAW provides you with several
ways to copy objects. When you no longer need an object, you can delete it.
Cutting, copying, and pasting
You can cut or copy an object to place
it on the Clipboard and paste it into a drawing or another application. Cutting
an object places it on the Clipboard and removes it from the drawing. Copying an
object places it on the Clipboard but keeps the original in the drawing.
Duplicating an object places a copy
directly in the drawing window and does not use the Clipboard. Duplicating is
faster than copying and pasting. Also, when duplicating an object, you can
specify the distance between the duplicate and the original object along the x
and y axes. This distance is known as the offset.
You can apply a transformation, such as rotating, sizing or skewing, to the
duplicate of an object while keeping the original object intact. If you decide
that you want to keep the original object, you can delete the duplicate.
Copying objects at a specified
You can create multiple object copies
simultaneously while specifying their position, without using the Clipboard. For
example, you can distribute object copies horizontally, to the left or right of
the original object; or you can distribute object copies vertically, below or
above the original object. You can specify the spacing between object copies, or
you can specify the offset at which object copies are created in relation to
Copying objects quickly
You can use other methods to create
object copies quickly, without placing an object copy on the Clipboard. You can
use the plus sign (+) on the numeric keypad to place an object copy on top of
the original object, or you can press the Spacebar or right-click while
dragging an object to create copies instantly.
