Move It While Drawing

Does that title mean anything to you? I bet not. It is probably pretty confusing. What I'm talking about it moving an object while drawing it in CorelDRAW. There is one huge gotcha with this feature. You have to be using a mouse. I can't get it to work at all when using a tablet.

Let's start with the rectangle tool. Click and drag to draw a rectangle. Before you let go of the left mouse button, press down the right mouse button. While you have both held down, move the rectangle wherever you want it to go. Now try it with an ellipse or a polygon or some other shape. Pretty cool isn't it?

interesting the things you find out after using the program since version 3!
it worked fine with my Wacom Graphire tablet though (which is very old!)

Jill, I often find odd things like this when I go back and read my book. I realize that they have been in the software for several versions and have been covered in my book. So obviously I knew it at one point and then completely forgot about it.
