A very common task when modifying graphics is to change one color to another. CorelDRAW has native support for these changes using the Find/Replace commands. The downside is that you have to run it twice if you want to change both outline and fill colors. A quicker method is to use the Oberon Color Replacer for CorelDRAW/Corel DESIGNER macro
shown at right. It is a free download and simplifies the process.
You'll note that it supports CorelDRAW 10-X5, but X6 is not listed. I have tested it in the 64-bit version of CorelDRAW X6
and it does not work. I do not have a copy of the 32-bit version of CorelDRAW X6
installed and therefore can not test. My guess is that it may work in the 32-bit version.
I'm sure this leads some of you to ask why all of your favorite macros are not updated yet for CorelDRAW X6
. There can be a variety of reasons. It is possible the developer no longer supports the macro. That isn't the case here. It is possible the macro developer doesn't own the newer version of the software. Again, that isn't the case here. In this case the developer is very busy on other projects and has not yet found free time to do the update.
