36 • A&E JANUARY 2020 YOUR LASER AT WORK By Bob Hagel WORKSPACE CorelDRAW's workspace can be an overwhelming place for both new users and more advanced graphic artists. As you gain experience, you will find that you become familiar with the parts of the workspace and tools you use the most. Yet, there are many other tools you may not know exist or just forgot about over time. I'm not going to go into detail on terminology or the Corel Workspace; however, a great way to become familiar with it is to go to the top menu and select Help>Product Help. You need to be con- nected to the internet. Under the Con- tents tab select Get started>CorelDRAW workspace tour>Application window. I suggest you print it (upper right of the screen) for future reference. I mention some of the key locations when describing tools in this article. I f you are fairly new to CorelDRAW and laser engraving, or feel you have more CorelDRAW to explore as a laser machine user, this article is for you. Following is an outline of my go-to Corel tools that I specifically use for laser engraving. My Go-to CorelDRAW Tools for Laser Engraving Bob Hagel and his wife Dana own Eagle's Mark Awards & Signs, offering a full line of personalized products using laser engraving, sand etching, and full-color UV direct print on products.

He can be reached at Printing the description of the application window or workspace and the terminology used is a great reference. ALL IMAGES COURTESY BOB HAGEL
