A&E APRIL 2019 • 39 more understandable after you've done it a few times. Repetition of a process makes it more natural after some use. A NECESSARY FUNCTION One of the more necessary functions of CorelDRAW is the ability to change from one color model to another. In this case, we'll change a CMYK vector image to a grayscale vector image. I have chosen a design that I created a few years ago for a church entity as my example. Originally destined as a CMYK, four-color T-shirt design, it is easily converted to a grayscale image (compare Figures 5 and 6). Go to Edit>Find and Replace>Replace Objects and a dialog box appears, as in Figure 7. I chose the second option, Replace a Color Model or Palette, then pressed Next. A new dialog box appeared (see Figure 8). Here, choose Replace All fig 2 Graphic Design Restarting: A Basic Fix One thing that sometimes occurs while using CorelDRAW is some unexplainable anomaly, such as I experienced while writing this article. It happened that I was suddenly unable to move objects by the click-and-drag method, though the Nudge and Align features continued to work properly. To solve the problem, I first tried restarting the program, which did not help. So I did a Repair install of the program, also to no avail. Finally, I restarted my computer, which solved the problem. I never discovered the cause of the problem, but was able to easily remedy it before contacting Corel Support or calling a Computer Geek. I can only surmise that there was some unknown conflict between my Windows 7 Operating System and CorelDRAW X7.
