Thread: Help Please

    You can select your doubled/overlapping design, hit Ctl-K or Arrange/Break Curve Apart (it will become 20 curves), and then click on each of the 10 duplicates and delete. Finally, select the 10 remaining curves that make up your design, and Ctl-L or Arrange/Combine to make a single curve again.

    Interesting, I didn't have to break curve apart to delete anything. May be x7 works a bit differently.

    that thing was weird, almost like someone else was working on it while I was working on it!

    first, virtual delete wouldn't work right, it kept deleting pieces of the outlines instead of whole outlines, even though there didn't seem to be pieces--

    outline tool wouldn't work right, it kept creating duplicate outlines, which it's never done before?

    I finally un-grouped and un-combined the whole thing, then individually picked sections with the mouse and moved them until I had a complete, single set of outlines... or so I thought! Each time I'd move a single set of lines, then combine them, they wouldn't paint right. When I'd un-combined it, I found about half the pieces were duplicates- ?

    Even after I finally verified each outline was only ONE piece, it still wouldn't paint correctly. Everything painted black except the centers of the letters. All lines outward from there were ignored. SO I exported, then imported back the graphic, and THEN it painted correctly.

    I eventually found out there was one set of 'correct' pieces that when combined would paint correctly without exporting, but it was hunt & peck to find them! I've had that happen before, and I understand how it can happen with connected shapes, but why with circles? The 2 inner circles in the top loop looked identical in wireframe and in node-edit mode, but only one would be 'seen' when combined with the outline and create a hollow hole rather than a filled hole after combining and painting. I don't get it. I've found sometimes just copy and pasting a graphic that doesn't work right into a new Corel window will fix it. But almost always, exporting as a DXF and then importing it back will fix it.

    Newer versions of Corel likely deal with this issue better than mine
