Thread: Box Maker or Corel Question

  1. #1

    Unhappy Box Maker or Corel Question

    When I make a box in box maker it opens in a corel page and its not all there. the box is bigger then the page and whatever doesn't fit in the page is gone. I have seen designs that were bigger then the page in corel and the designs just overlapped the page edges. which I just resized the design to fit the page. So how do I get the box to go into corel with it all there ?

    Try opening a Corel page (Blank) to a size bigger than you need, then drag and drop the file into that page.

    Bert, You might try http://boxmaker.rahulbotics.com/ It's free, you type in your box sizes and it creates a PDF file for your output. Then bring it into Corel and send to your laser. Hope this helps ...................... Ron Thompson

    Thanks Ron,
    I did try that, but because my laser has a small bed I need to get it into corel so I can put it on many pages. I don't think I can break up the PDF file.

    Bert, create the pdf by going to the site and put in your sizes. Then save your pdf to your desktop and call it "test box" or something like that. Then open Corel Draw (I'm using X5). Go to file - open and select the pdf file. Open as curves not text, if you get a message that you don't have the correct font, just continue. Now you should see the image with the 6 boxes on your screen. Carefully select each box one at a time by drawing a box with the pick tool. Now its time to go to arrange and select combine. Do that for each of the 6 sides then save your drawing before you play with it.
