Previous message (5-15-2024): Hi, all. Sorry for any lack of communication lately. I have been extremely busy running my graphics and car audio shop. The days are long with little rest. I finally had a chance to see some of your emails and will see what I can do about CorelDraw 2024 macros. I haven't decided on an exact direction but may release mini-suites, or just the whole suite again with upgrade pricing. The best deal of course would be the purchase of the GDG Macro Suite.
Available now! GDG Macros Suite 2023.

How do you use them? Install them?

 
 

Macros for CorelDraw are easy to install. Some come with an installer. You just click on the installer and they install automatically. Of course restart CorelDraw after installing.

(My commercial macros DO NOTcome with an installer and are only sold to those who have intermediate to professional experience with CorelDraw and macros).

Extract or copy the GMS file to:

In X5 put .gms file here: C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5\Draw\GMS

In X6 put .gms file here: C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6\Draw\GMS

In X7 put .gms file here: C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X7\Draw\GMS

In X8 put .gms file here: C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X8\Draw\GMS

In v.2017 put .gms file here: C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017\Draw\GMS

In v.2018 put .gms file here: C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2018\Draw\GMS

In v.2019 put .gms file here: C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2019\Draw\GMS

In v.2020 put .gms file here: C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2020\Draw\GMS

There are no CorelDraw 2021 macros available. See 2023 macro package. Although not officially supported, the 2023 macros are unlocked for CorelDraw 2021

There are no CorelDraw 2022 macros available. See 2023 macro package. Although not officially supported, the 2022 macros are unlocked for CorelDraw 2022

In v.2023 put .gms file here: C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2023\DrawPE\GMS

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you do not see the GMS folder it is because you have not started VBA yet in your CorelDraw application. I recommend you go to Tools > Options and in the setting for VBA uncheck Delay load VBA.

In older versions of Windows and CorelDraw you can put here (pre XP sp3):

C:\Program Files\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4\Draw\GMS

After installing the macro either by and installer or by copying the GMS file to the correct location then you need to put a shortcut in CorelDraw so you can run it. Go to Tools>Customize

tools options customize macros
 
 


 
 

Next...
Click on Macros from the dropdown box as shown in the next picture below. A list of all of your installed GMS files will then appear. You can drag the one you need to a desired place on one of your toolbars (or create a custom tool bar just for macros). Using the Shortcut Keys tab you can assign a shortcut key to the macro. Using the Appearance Tab you can change th appearance of the icon for your new macro.

How do I use the code you gave me?

If you just want to use a piece of code that I gave you, or you got from someone else here's how to use it.

It's best to set up one gms for your simple code macros like this one.

Close coreldraw.

Go to C:\Program Files\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4\Draw\GMS and make a blank new text doc and name it simple.gms, where "simple" can be any name of your choosing.

Make sure you remove the .txt extension so it will now be simple.gms

Start coreldraw.

Go to tools>macros>macro editor, or enable the macro toolbar and click it there.

On the left you should be able to find the file you made in the project explorer.

See image:

how to use code for macro

Always give your new module a name the same way.

You can copy and paste your code directly into the new module using large area on the right.

You can play the macro by clicking the play button on the top, or setting up a shortcut button or key by going to tools>options>customize..

I hope this helps to get you started.
...Now go check out some of my macros!
