Using the Print
You can use the Print
merge wizard to combine text with a drawing; for example, you can personalize an
invitation by printing a different recipient's name on each invitation.
The following steps
provide a general overview of the process of merging a document.
A. Create or open
an existing data file — You can open a new file or an existing data file.
CorelDRAW supports the following files: Text (TXT), Comma-separated
Values (CSV), and Rich Text Format (RTF).
B. Create data
fields — You can specify data field names.
C. Input data in
the data fields — Once you have created a list of data fields, you can input
data under the data field names.
D. Save the data
file — You can save information in the data fields in a text file.
E. Insert the
fields in the drawing — You can specify fields and their position in a
drawing by clicking on the Insert selected print merge field icon, choosing a
name from the list box, and clicking anywhere on the drawing.
F. Merge the data
file and the drawing — You can preview the merged document in the Print
Preview window. Data fields are merged with a drawing when you print
The steps above may
vary if you are using an existing data file.
