CorelDRAW: Sharing and Managing Transparency and Fills

Working with bitmap patterns, vector patterns, or transparencies and fountain fills, we can apply Content Exchange for the transparency patterns, share fills, copy, search, and browse.

This chapter contains the following essential topics:

  • Managing transparencies and fills
  • Sharing and saving transparencies and fills

Managing transparencies and fills

CorelDRAW enables us to browse fountain fills, bitmap patterns, and vector patterns that are present in our personal library or over Content Exchange. These fills may also be applied as the transparency patterns.

Content Exchange includes content facilitated by Corel or shares by various users we should sign-in to corel.com account.

We may browse the present patterns and fills, or search through keyword, vote for patterns and fills, mark patterns and fills as favorites that we like, and copy the content through the content exchange for our personal library.

After we modify or create transparency or fill pattern, we can add tags (also called "keywords") and save it inside any language of our choice. Patterns and fills are saved within a unique file format along with the .fill extension that preserves the information of the transformations used to a pattern or fills.
