Contours in Corel

Post by LifeisGood » Wed Feb 17, 2010 11:23 pm

Is there a way to change the properties of a contour around an item? If I add a contour around text, the edges are sharp and each additional layer is the same. How can I change the contour from that sharp edging to a radius?

To give you a comparable example, it would be like clicking the corner of a rectangle, sliding the node, and being able to radius all corners at the same time.
Whether you think you can or doubt you can, you're probably right.

Can't you break the contour away from the text.

Make your edits.

Then regroup the contour to the text?

break the contour apart, select all the nodes of the contour, even the strait ones, open the fillet/scallop/chamfer and find a suitable radius...
