    Good Morning All

    Can anyone advise on how I can obtain the plug in for corel draw and advise if its a good addition.

    I am new to all this and have corel draw, signlab e6, and a basic package called Artcut I got from Impact.

    Would I be right in saying that if I obtain a plug in I can cut straight from corel ?

    Thanks in advance

    i think that plug ins gets confused with printer cutter drivers coral will cut with the correct windows driver installed but there are small programmes that act with coral some times called plug ins that have special drivers built in.

    there you are clear as mud.

    Plug ins are third party programs that integrate with Corel to provide features Corel dont , Coreldraw has scripts and a Virtual basic programming language , the “plug ins” use this.
    Plug ins are normally associated with Corel photopaint rather than CorelDraw (they are generally called scripts in draw)
    there are many sites that offer free scripts , google Coreldraw Scripts and you will find some of them. Some are free , some cost you.
    (also have a look in Corel under “new from template” which has a lot of predetrmined layouts etc – also a sort of “plug in”)
    Corel already has some scripts , under tools.
    Corel is not the greatest package for cutting only , it does not interpolate 100% and often you need to do a lot of workarounds to get where a dedicated cutting package would be.

    What do we need to do to cut straight from Corel 9.
    We currently export to wincut, then open up our summa cut programme to cut. Bit long winded, if you could shed any light on setting up Corel that would be great.
