What is CorelDraw Macro? How to use a CorelDraw Macro?

Macro is a small program made with Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). If you know about programming, you can create powerful features, as you can find here on scritpsnmacros.com, but if you don’t know about programming, you can also use it anyway. Simply, you can use it as a recorder, you can save all steps and save the macro. Then, you can repeat the same steps with the same document or with another document. Just go to the Tools menu / VisualBasic or Scripts (Depends upon version of software you are using).

If you want to store a recorded macro for future use, you can save it by using the Record Macro dialog box. Saving a recorded macro is particularly useful if you want to extend or customize its functionality by editing it in the Script Editor.
