A line is a path between two points.
Lines can consist of multiple segments, and the line segments can be curved or
straight. The line
segments are connected by nodes which are
depicted as small squares. CorelDRAW provides various drawing tools that let you
and straight lines, and lines containing
both curved and straight segments.
Freehand and Polyline tools
tools let you draw freehand lines as if you were sketching on a sketchpad. If
you make a mistake
while drawing, you can erase the unwanted part immediately and
continue drawing. When drawing straight lines or segments, you can
constrain them to straight vertical or horizontal lines.
The Freehand tool lets you control the
smoothness of the curved line you are drawing as well as add segments to an
However, the Polyline tool is easier to
use for quickly drawing a complex line that consists of alternating curved and
You can choose settings to control how the
Freehand and Bézier tools behave. For example, you can
change the default smoothness of a
curved line that you’ve created with these tools.
Bézier and Pen tools
tools let you draw lines one segment at a time by placing each node with
precision and controlling the shape
of each curved segment. When using the
Pen tool, you can preview the line segments you are
You can draw lines with multiple segments by using the
Bézier tool and clicking each time you want the line to
You can draw curves by using the Bézier
tool and dragging the control handles at the ends of the Bézier curve.
3 point curve tool
The 3 point curve
tool lets you draw simple curved lines by specifying their width and height. Use
this tool to create arc shapes quickly without manipulating nodes.
You can draw a curved line by
specifying its width (left), and then specifying its height and clicking the
Smart drawing tool
The Smart drawing
lets you use shape recognition to draw straight and curved lines
