A Digital Printing Network
I was over to a car wrap guys place and he had a graphic I sent him opened in flexisign. We were putting a border around some letters and numbers. Once we had that he then dragged the lower right corner of the border down and to the left a bit to look like an elongated shadow but I don't believe it distorted the rest of the border on the other sides. Is this an effect I can recreate in Corel Draw?
is this what you were looking for?
I will have to compare this way to the video and see if there is a difference. I think the way in the video gives you straight lines to the end as opposed to some contour areas.
Well sure they'll be a difference
You didn't say what kind of drop shadow you wanted
If you want perspective (depth) then use the Extrude option
That will do the trick. Thanks.
Thought that would work but I didn't follow the video all the way through before posting. After breaking apart when trying to weld it goes all over the place.
John a picture is worth 1,000 words
There's all kinds of ways to make a drop shadow effect in Corel
If you show us what you want, it will be a lot easier for us to give you specific
That's weird Di. I went back and welded and I did not get the nodes going all over the place as I originally did. I do however have an excessive amount of nodes around the perimeter now. See the two pics. The top one shows what I have achieved which is what I am looking for. The bottom one is wireframe and shows the excessive amount of nodes. Corel is already at zero when trying to reduce the number of nodes. Anyone know if this will cause the cutter to cut jagged lines?
A few things to try:
 Instead of marquee selecting all the nodes, you can try to select smaller sections
This trick used to work very well for older versions, not so much any more
 You can also gently use the slider under the reduce nodes icon
Gently....because if you slide it too much, your lines will get distorted
 Another thing to try, is to marquee select all the nodes and change their attritbute to curved nodes.
Then try the reduce node button again, you'll probably get a nice additional reduction in node count
It looks really great, John
