After opening Corel Draw on your machine, go to the Menu Bar and select File > New. A blank document will appear.
You will also notice the Property Bar above.
Here you can adjust the Paper/Size Type to Letter 8.5" x 11" and the Orientation to Portrait.

To set Margins, go to the Layout Menu > Page Setup.
This will open the Options Window.
Double click on Guidelines to the left.
Under Guidelines, select Presets.
This open the Presets Window where you will select User Defined Presets.
Set Top and Left to "0.3" inches, then check the Mirror Margins Box.

Notice the change to the Gradient Color Bar.
Next select the White Square above the bar, and click on the Yellow Color Swatch again.

Clicking once between the Black and White Square, will reveal the area where you can insert a New Gradient Color.
