Perfect Circles

Hold the CTRL key as you draw using your Ellipse Tool. The result will be a perfect circle.

Perfect Circles from your mouse point (from the inside)

Hold SHIFT-CTRL key as you draw, this will be perfect circle from the inside ranging outwards.

Perfect Squares

Hold the CTRL key as you draw using your Rectangle Tool. This will also create a perfect square.

TIP: Look at your top measurement selector in the top title tool bar.

Practice achieving a referenced number when drawing. This habit will assist your drawing to life size or bigger image and is a trade secret signwriters have been using for a long time, the more you draw with a specific measurement in mind, the clearer the image and importantly, the better you become.

This principle can be applied to lots of other medium, such as carpentry, sculpture models, building design..

Perfect Squares or Circles from the inside.

Hold the SHIFT-CTRL when drawing with your Rectangle Tool.

Coreldraw : Using the ellipse tool you can draw perfect circles, ellipses to your size and manipulate circles to new shapes with the node edit tools.

Once you have a circle or ellipse drawn,
> convert to curves,
> then using your node edit tool,
> break apart the nodes,
> select the entire node values and split the nodes.

Then you can control and move your circle or elipse to become part of a line or weld to another object such as a rectangle without losing any clarity of your remaining shape (curve).
