How do you use them? Install them?


Macros for CorelDraw are easy to install. Some come with an installer. You just click on the installer and they install automatically. Of course restart CorelDraw after installing. My macros do not come with an installer. Extract or copy the GMS file to:

In X5 put .gms file here: C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5\Draw\GMS

In X6 put .gms file here: C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6\Draw\GMS

In X7 put .gms file here: C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X7\Draw\GMS

In older versions of Windows and CorelDraw you can put here:

C:\Program Files\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4\Draw\GMS

NOTE: the GMS folder is not created unless VBA has been initialized at least one time in CorelDraw.

After installing the macro either by and installer or by copying the GMS file to the correct location then you need to put a shortcut in CorelDraw so you can run it. Go to Tools>Customize

tools options customize macros


Click on Macros from the dropdown box as shown in the next picture below. A list of all of your installed GMS files will then appear. You can drag the one you need to a desired place on one of your toolbars (or create a custom tool bar just for macros). Using the Shortcut Keys tab you can assign a shortcut key to the macro. Using the Appearance Tab you can change th appearance of the icon for your new macro.

How do I use the code you gave me?

If you just want to use a piece of code that I gave you, or you got from someone else here's how to use it.

It's best to set up one gms for your simple code macros like this one.

Close coreldraw.

Go to C:\Program Files\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4\Draw\GMS and make a blank new text doc and name it simple.gms, where "simple" can be any name of your choosing.

Make sure you remove the .txt extension so it will now be simple.gms

Start coreldraw.

Go to tools>macros>macro editor, or enable the macro toolbar and click it there.

On the left you should be able to find the file you made in the project explorer.

See image:

how to use code for macro

Always give your new module a name the same way.

You can copy and paste your code directly into the new module using large area on the right.

You can play the macro by clicking the play button on the top, or setting up a shortcut button or key by going to tools>options>customize..
