CorelDraw texts in different languages
CorelDraw allows us to work with various texts in different languages efficiently.
This chapter includes the following essential topics:
Editing Asian text
An input of Asian character is supported within the CorelDRAW if we apply an appropriate OS or if language support is installed over the non-Asian OS only. We can select the default text r font orientation if typing text. If we type paragraph text or artistic text, the program will use the default paragraph or artistic text style.
To select the default font
The steps are listed below:
Using rules of line-breaking for Asian text
In CorelDRAW, we can include various rules of line-breaking for application with some Asian text if we have any Asian OS. For most of the Asian languages, the text's line can break among two characters, along with some exceptions. A few characters can't illustrate at the starting of the line. These types of characters are called "leading characters."
To enable or disable the line-breaking rules
Note: We must have the Asian text support that should be installed on our operating system for viewing the menu items of the Line-breaking rule.
Asian text OpenType support
We can use standard OpenType typography aspects to the Asian text. These aspects can be authorized through the Character area within the Object properties docker.
Some of the essential OpenType aspects and their description are as follows:
Asian width: It modifies the width thru replacing or spacing a glyph.
Horizontal Kana alternates: It substitutes a standard kana glyph along with the horizontal kana glyph.
Asian forms: It replaces the chosen characters along with a distinct glyph form. The forms can't be combined.
Vertical Kana alternates: It substitutes a standard kana glyph along with the vertical kana glyph.
Editing multilingual text
In CorelDRAW, we can include various controls to format the text in distinct languages. We can limit the size, style, and font that modifies to Middle Eastern, Asian, or Latin text by selecting a script type.
To limit properties of font modifies to the multilingual text
Note: The list box of Language group and script is present only if applying the Middle Eastern or Asian operating system or if we have language support installed over the operating system.
Showing text accurately in a language
CorelDRAW allows every text to be inserted into the document that is encoded with the Unicode character set. If we import or open any drawing that includes text, CorelDRAW transforms an encoding system that was applied within the file for Unicode. We can show any text accurately by converting it to Unicode to apply the proper code page.
The encoding setting does not affect any text's display outer side of the drawing window, like Text entries, filenames, and keywords inside the Object data manager and Object manager dockers.
To show text accurately in a language
Modifying the encoding permits us to apply Unicode fonts, however, our real text was applying non-Unicode fonts.
