    Default Struggling with Corel Draw CutContour

    Good day,

    are there any seasoned CorelDraw users here?

    The printshop asked me to change the CutContour line from pink into cyan, and to rename it into Thr-cut.

    I can't figure out how to change the cut line color, tried different ways via this configuration window, but changing the color here does not change the standard pink. What am I doing wrong?

    Thank you!

    It has been a million years (at least) since I used CD. But can you just select the line, then right click on a color on the screen palette?

    If the outline is a contour, then you might have to convert the contour so it is not a contour any more? In Xara (which is what we use here) it's Convert to Editable Shapes.

    Hi Gary,


    Yes, changing the line into a random color removes the cutting line. I should fine a way to change the default color of the ContourCut. That's not just a graphic outline but something readable by cutting machine software.


    Thanks,
    Al
