Draw a Rectangle that partially covers the Monitor.
Now you know what a selected object looks like, because of the Handles that surround it.
Using the Select Tool, click on the Rectangle again. This will change the Scaling and Stretching Handles to Rotation and Skewing Handles.
The Rotation Handles are on the 4 Corners of the Rectangles.
Place your cursor over one of the Rotation Handles and drag slightly to the Right.
Add some Color to this Rectangle so that it's much easier to work with. Here it will be set to Gray RGB 51.
You'll see that no matter how much you Skew, Scale, Stretch or Rotate, the Rectangle just won't line up correctly.
Select the Zoom Tool from the Toolbox and click over the Monitor a couple times. This will make the Colored Background easier to see.
Immediately the Handles disappear and are replaced by 4 Nodes.
Now dragging any one of these 4 Nodes would Round the Corners of this shape.
There are still Nodes present at the corners of this Rectangle. They are very tiny.
Select and drag the Nodes that need to be adjusted.
Notice that none of the Blue Background is visible.
For the Computer Classes Flyer Title and Subtitles, the Font used is Black Rose by Bright Ideas.
(Note for a newly downloaded Font to be usable on your machine, you
must first install it. Any Font installed while Corel Draw is open, will not be visible in the Font List. To correct this, you must first restart the Corel Draw program after Font(s) installation.)
For more information on Fonts and how to properly install them, visit the FlyerTutor Blog.
Select the Image, then hold down your Shift Key while you select the Rotated Rectangle. With both objects selected, right click and select Group from the menu that appears.
Change the Fill Color of the Title Text to RGB 77.
The Flyer should look very similar to this.
For the Stroke Color select White.
You'll notice 2 Square Handles appear around the Text, the Start Handle and the End Handle.
You can drag these Handles to create the Drop Shadow or select a Shadow Preset from the Property Bar.
Click the down arrow to the right of Presets and select Flat Bottom Right from the list.
The Drop Shadow appears but there is a little too much space between it and the Text.
To fix this, you'll need to make some adjustments to the Drop Shadow Offset located on the Property Bar. It sets the Distance between Drop Shadow and an Object.
So set X to 0.075" and Y to -0.09".
You'll see that the Drop Shadow is moved closer to the Text.
However, the Shadow can be a bit more pronounced.
To change the Transparency of the Drop Shadow, set Drop Shadow Opacity to 35.
Now the Shadow appears to be visibly darker.
Select Center from the drop down menu.
Now the Text will be centered within its bounding box.
This opens the Save Drawing Window.
Browse to where you wish to save your file, give it a name in the File Name Area and select Save.
