Importing Text

If you already have the text for a brochure or newsletter saved as a word processing document, there's no need to retype it into a CorelDraw project. You can import it into the project as paragraph text and manipulate it just as if you were using a page layout program.

To import text into a project:

1.
Choose File > Import or press .

The Import dialog box appears (Figure 11.20).

Figure 11.20. Select a text or word processing document and click the Import button.


2.
Navigate to the drive and folder that contains the document that you want to import, and select the file name.

3.
Click Import.

Depending on the type of document you are importing (such as a Word file), you may see a notice that the document is being converted. Then a special cursor appears (Figure 11.21).

Figure 11.21. This cursor indicates that CorelDraw is ready to import the named document.


4.
Select the spot on the page that you want to serve as the upper-left corner of the text box and then click to place the text.

The text appears in a single large text frame (Figure 11.22). You can work with it like you can any paragraph text object.

Figure 11.22. This is an example of placed text.
