Pantone Color Guides

In the Spring of 2005, Pantone, Inc., released two brand-new color guides:

  1. PANTONE COLOR BRIDGE coated
  2. PANTONE COLOR BRIDGE coated EURO

These guides replace the PANTONE SOLID TO PROCESS GUIDE coated, and PANTONE SOLID TO PROCESS GUIDE coated Euro, respectively.

Corel is pleased to offer support for the CMYK simulation values contained within these two guides. The PANTONE library, which is labeled "PANTONE solid to process coated EURO", actually has the updated values contained in the PANTONE COLOR BRIDGE COATED EURO GUIDE.

With regard to the North American version of PANTONE color bridge coated, if you select PANTONE colors from the PANTONE solid coated, PANTONE solid uncoated or PANTONE solid matte libraries, the resulting CMYK values are consistent with those in PANTONE color bridge coated. Please note that the data within the PANTONE SOLID TO PROCESS GUIDE coated, and PANTONE SOLID TO PROCESS GUIDE coated EURO, are not supported in this release.

For more information on Pantone's newest guides, please use the following links:

Recently Pantone released the 2006 edition of the PANTONE® PASTEL FORMULA GUIDE coated/ uncoated, featuring 28 new colors, and the PANTONE® METALLIC FORMULA GUIDE coated, featuring 97 new colors. Here is a summary of updates to the products:

Scrapbook

CorelDRAW X4 has the added functionality of being able to copy your content from the CD to another location and continue using the Scrapbook features. To make use of this functionality when using the scrapbook, you will need to do the following:

For CGS X3 content:

  1. In the location of your choice, create a folder that has the same name as the volume label of the content CD (for example, for the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X3 clipart disk, you would require a folder called "CGX3_CLPART").
  2. Copy the entire contents of that CD, including the volinfo.txt file, into this folder.
  3. In the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\Software\Corel\Media\Corel GRAPHICS X3 Clipart (Disk2), change the path to the location of the folder you created in step #1.
  4. In the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\Software\Corel\Media\Corel GRAPHICS X3 Photos (Disk3), change the path to the location of the folder you created in step #1.
    You will now be able to browse and perform searches on your photos & objects without the need to use the content CDs.

For CGS X4 content:

  1. In the location of your choice, create a folder that has the same name as the volume label of  the DVD (CGX4_PGRM).
  2. Select the Extras folder from the DVD and copy the entire thing (including all subfolders) to the CGX4_PGRM folder; ensure that you maintain the folder structure of the Extras folder.
  3. In the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\Software\Corel\Media\Corel GRAPHICS X4, change the path to the location of the folder you created in step #1

You will now be able to browse and perform searches on your photos & objects without the need to use the content CDs.

Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications

To use Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications within CorelDRAW X4 and Corel PHOTO-PAINT X4, Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications 6.4 must be installed. Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications 6.4 is included in the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 Setup under Utilities and is installed by default during a typical installation.

VBA Programming Guide for CorelDRAW X4

The VBA Programming Guide for CorelDRAW X4 will help you automate tasks and create custom solutions using VBA. If you installed CorelDRAW using the typical install, or a custom install that included VBA, then the guide is accessible from a link in the VBA Help for CorelDRAW or from the corresponding CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 Start menu shortcut.

Updating Macros from CorelDRAW X3 to CorelDRAW X4

To ensure that a macro written for CorelDRAW X3 will work as designed in CorelDRAW X4, you may need to change the name of the class, method, or property, or you may have to change parameters for the macro.

GMS Folders in the User Profile Path

GMS files are normally saved to the GMS folders under the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4\Draw and CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4\CorelPHOTO-PAINT folders. If the user does not have write access to these folders, the GMS folders will be saved to the User Draw and CorelPHOTO-PAINT folders.

To use the Add-ins for a Windows XP/Vista Limited User Account

Follow the steps below to use add-ins for a Limited User account (the example is for Corel PHOTO-PAINT):

Log in with administrator privileges to the system where you want to run the add-in.
Run regsvr32.exe on the add-in. This will add the required class IDs and registry keys that only an administrator can create.
Run regedit.exe. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Corel/CorelDraw/14.0/Corel PHOTO-PAINT/Addins.
Select the key for your add-in (for example, PhotoPaint.Addin1).
From the Registry menu, click Export Registry File. Enable the Selected Branch option, type a filename in the File name box, and click Save.
Log in to the Limited User account and run regedit.exe.
From the Registry menu, click Import Registry File, specify the .reg file that you exported in step 5, and click Open.
You should be able to run the add-in from this Limited User account.
