Replacing Default Palette

Corel ships with a horrible default color palette which you'll want to replace. Although Corel allows you to set a custom palette as default, it doesn't always take your palette into consideration when you use secondary color pickers found in the floodfill tool. To permanently replace Corel's default palette copy your custom palette into this folder:

C:\Program Files\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X7\Color\Palettes

Rename the existing defrgb.xml to defrgb.bak, then rename your custom palette to defrgb.xml. Restart Corel, and your custom palette will now be the default palette everywhere.


Fixing CorelDRAW's Zoom

The default zoom in Corel PHOTO-PAINT behaves exactly as you'd expect, but the CorelDRAW zoom is different and unintuitive. To set it to behave more like PHOTO-PAINT (though still imperfect), do the following:

  1. Open CorelDRAW.
  2. In the menu, click on Tools.
  3. Click on Options.
  4. Expand Workspace.
  5. Expand Toolbox.
  6. Click on Zoom, Pin Tool.
  7. Check Center mouse when zooming with the mouse wheel.
  8. Click OK.
