Chapter 17. CorelDraw and the Web > Converting Documents to Web Pages

Converting Documents to Web Pages

After you've finished designing your Web pages, it's time to convert them into HTML and image files that can be read by Web browsers. Each document page will be converted to a separate Web page, and a folder will be created to store all the images on the pages. As part of the process, the pages are automatically checked for HTML conflicts and errors.

To convert a document to Web pages:

Be sure that your CorelDraw document has been saved normally.

Choose File > Publish To The Web > HTML.

The Publish To The Web dialog box appears, open to the General tab (Figure 17.33).

Figure 17.33. Most of the critical settings for HTML output can be found on the General tab.

Check the right-most tab to see if any issues are noted. If so, click the tab to read about them (Figure 17.34).

Figure 17.34. If any problems are found, you can read about them on this tab.

Many issues can be corrected during the conversion process. If you'd rather fix them manually, click the Cancel button, make the necessary corrections, and begin again with Step 1.

On the General tab, choose a layout style from the HTML Layout Method drop-down list.

Enter a folder name for the HTML output in the Destination text box or select a folder by clicking the Browse button.

In the Images text box, enter a name for the subfolder in which the images will be stored or accept the default name.

If you've exported these pages previously and want to retain only the newest copies, click the Replace existing files check box.

To automatically open the new pages in your browser following the conversion, click the Display In Browser When Done check box.

In the Export Range area, indicate whether you want to generate HTML files for all pages in the document, only the current page, or a range of pages.

On the Details tab (Figure 17.35), you can enter/edit the title and file name for each page. (The title is the text that will appear in a browser's title bar when the page is viewed.)

Figure 17.35. You can assign or change the display titles for your Web pages on the Details tab.

On the Images tab (Figure 17.36), you can view or alter the file and compression settings for the images on your Web pages.

Figure 17.36. You can rename or change file type and compression settings for images on the Images tab.

Click OK to export the Web pages and close the dialog box (Figure 17.37).

Figure 17.37. The output consists of one or more HTML files and a folder that contains the images.
