Window Management

As in most Windows programs, you can move, resize, minimize, or maximize the main window or individual document windows. In addition, several other useful window-related commands can be found in the Window menu.

  • To move the CorelDraw window or a document window, click the window's title bar (Figure 2.16) and drag.

    Figure 2.16. This is the CorelDraw program window.

  • To change the size of the CorelDraw window or a document window, click and drag any window corner or edge.

    Resizing can only be accomplished when a window isn't maximized. If it is, it may be necessary to first click the Restore box in the window's upper-right corner.

  • Minimizing CorelDraw shrinks it to a button on the Windows taskbar (Figure 2.17). Minimizing a document window shrinks it to an icon at the bottom of the CorelDraw desktop (Figure 2.17). To minimize the main window or a document window, click its minimize box.

    Figure 2.17. The CorelDraw program (top) and CorelDraw documents (bottom) can both be minimized.

  • Maximizing CorelDraw causes it to fill the entire screen; maximizing a document causes it to fill the CorelDraw desktop. To maximize the main window or a document window, click the maximize box.

  • If you have multiple documents open, you can make a different one active by choosing its name from the Window menu (Figure 2.18) or by clicking any part of the window to which you want to switch.

    Figure 2.18. The Window menu has commands for arranging, closing, and choosing windows.

  • You can arrange open windows in various configurations by choosing commands from the Window menu (Figure 2.18).

  • You can make another copy of the active document by choosing Window > New Window. Doing so enables you to simultaneously view the document at two different magnifications, for example.
