components, reinstall previously selected components, or remove the
entire installation. From the Control Panel, double-click Add/remove

Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)
Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications
To use Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications within CorelDRAW 11 and
Corel PHOTO-PAINT 11, Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications 6.3 must
be installed. Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications 6.3 is included
in the CorelDRAW Graphic Suite 11 Setup under Custom Install options and
is installed by default during a Typical or default Custom installation.
After installing CorelDRAW 11, you must leave the CD in the CD drive
after rebooting to complete the installation of Visual Basic for Applications.
VBA Programming Guide for CorelDRAW 11
The new VBA Programming Guide for CorelDRAW 11 will help you automate
tasks and create custom solutions using VBA in CorelDRAW. If you installed
CorelDRAW using the Typical install, or a Custom install that included
VBA, then the guide is accessible from a link in the CorelDRAW VBA Help.
The Help for CorelDRAW VBA has been improved. Most of the properties
and methods now have code samples to show how to use the property or method.
Updating Macros from CorelDRAW 10 to CorelDRAW 11
To ensure that a macro written for CorelDRAW 10 will work as designed
in CorelDRAW 11, you may need to change the name of the class, method,
or property, or change parameters for the macro. For more information,
see Updating macros from CorelDRAW 10 to CorelDRAW 11 in the CorelDRAW
FindShapes method from Shapes
Shapes.FindShapes is not fully implemented. It still functions with the
GMS folder in the User Profile Path
GMS files are normally saved to the GMS folders under the Corel Graphics
11/Draw and Corel Graphics 11/CorelPHOTO-PAINT folders. If
the user does not have write access to these folders, the GMS folders
will be saved to the user's Draw and CorelPHOTO-PAINT folders.
CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT now include additional GMS files. CorelDRAW
comes with a FileConverter.gms file and a CalendarWizard.gms file. For
more information, please see the CorelDRAW VBA Help for an overview of
these macros. Corel PHOTO-PAINT comes with an HTMLSlideShow.gms file,
which takes open files in Corel PHOTO-PAINT and converts them to an HTML
New Text Functions
The text classes in VBA now support multiple languages. Following is
an example using double-byte characters:
Dim strVBA As String
Dim strDraw As String
Dim c As String
Dim n As Long
strVBA = "wóääjijôfâÔóâLZó"
strDraw = ""
For n = 1 To Len(strVBA)
c = Mid$(strVBA, n, 1)
strDraw = strDraw & ChrW$(Asc(c))
ActiveLayer.CreateArtisticText 0, 0, strVBA, , cdrCharSetRussian
ActiveLayer.CreateArtisticTextWide 5, 0, strDraw, , cdrCharSetRussian
VBA on Windows XP
After installing CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 11 on Windows XP with an Administrator
account, you should start VBA with the same account before logging in
and starting with a Limited User account. The file, VBE6EXT.OLB, must
be registered upon initialization of VBA. The Administrator account can
register this file, but a Limited User cannot. If you use a Limited User
account without first starting VBA as an Administrator, you can use VBA,
but you will receive an error message, "VBE6EXT.OLB could not be loaded."
To get the add-ins to work for a Windows XP Limited User account
Follow the steps below to get add-ins to work for a Limited User account
(example is for Corel PHOTO-PAINT):
- Log in with Administrator privileges to the system where you want
to run the add-in.
- Run regsvr32.exe on the add-in. This will add the required class
IDs and registry keys that only an Administrator can create.
- Run regedit.exe. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Corel/Corel
- Select the key for your add-in (for example, PhotoPaint.Addin1).
- From the Registry menu, click Export registry file.
Enable the Selected branch option, type a filename in the File
name box, and click Save.
- Log in to the Limited User account and run regedit.exe.
- From the Registry menu, click Import registry file,
specify the .reg file that you exported in step 5, and click
Now you should be able to run the add-in from this Limited User account.
