Is there a way to automate this word soup creation in Corel. Ideally, I would like to enter a list of words and have a macro or sequence of steps that would randomly change the font, size, color and orientation. Check this graphic to get an idea of what I want to do.

Khalid.....I believe they are also called word clouds. You can create them at a website like http://www.tagxedo.com/ and then import the bitmap into corel.

If you have a .pdf printer driver installed, you can instead print to a .pdf, then open that in Corel (or any other vector drawing program) and get vectors.

Programmable drawing tools like metapost or nodebox will allow even more options and control.

Great idea about using the PDF printer driver.
