Creating PowerClip objects
CorelDRAW lets you place vector objects and bitmaps, such as photos, inside
other objects, or containers. A container can be any object, for example
artistic text or a rectangle. When you place an object into a container that is
larger than the container, the object, called the content, is cropped to fit the
form of the container. This creates a PowerClip object.
Objects before becoming a PowerClip object: artistic text and a bitmap
You can create more complex PowerClip objects by placing one PowerClip object
inside another PowerClip object to produce a nested PowerClip object. You can
also copy the contents of one PowerClip object to another PowerClip object.
In the PowerClip object, the artistic text is the container, and the bitmap
forms the contents. The bitmap is shaped to the letters of the artistic text.
After you create a PowerClip object you can modify the content and the
container. For example, you can lock the content, so that when you move the
container, the content moves with it. CorelDRAW also lets you extract the
content from a PowerClip object, so that you can delete the content or modify it
without affecting the container.
