- Well, here we are back again to take a look at CorelDraw 12, and this time we're gonna go into a lot more detail. We're gonna cover every feature inside of this application and we're gonna look at every button and every switch. My hopes in doing so is to give you, those of you who have been using CorelDraw for a long time, an opportunity to see all of the tools, some of which you may never have dabbled wiith because you didn't know exactly how they worked. This title assusmes that you've already viewed the training that comes with CorelDraw 12.

There's a companion CD that has been created in partnership with Corel and That includes two hours of training. This training is very basic. It covers a few of the drawing tools and a few of the concepts that are necessary in order to create vector illustrations. It touches briefly on Photo Paint. It touches briefly on Rave, and it spends several minutes looking at the new features that have been included with CorelDraw12. If you are new to vector illustrations or new to CorelDraw, it's mandatory that you watch those videos first.

The information contained in that two-hour training will not be repeated here inside the advanced training. If you're currently using a previous version of CorelDraw, say version nine, 10 or 11, and you're viewing this video now just to pick up some new tips and tricks that are applicable to older versions, that would mean you haven't viewed the two-hour training video. If you that that will be beneficial to you, again, because that information won't be repeated here, you can find it online at

That's L-Y-N-D-A dot com Lynda has generously made it available to everyone so that you can get the maximum value out of this advanced training without repeating any of the information that was included in the two-hour segment.
