In our last discussion of Imposition Layout, we showed you how to use CorelDRAW's Imposition Layout feature to engrave several plaques to fill the engraving table without having to duplicate the image.
Now we're going to take this concept to the next level and add in the ability to create custom names on each of the plaques.
To view a Flash Demonstration, click here.
In CorelDRAW, we've opened the plaque we want to add the names of each Founding Member to.
We will be using the Print Merge feature in Corel to load a list of each of the names we are using for this project. The Print Merge feature is found under the File menu at the top of the page.
From the Print Merge drop-down menu, select Create/Load Merge Fields.
Next we're given the choice to save our settings for this merge. You would want to do this if you were going to be using the Founding Member list for more projects.
We're only using the list once, so click the Finish button
Back on our document, a Print Merge menu has popped up. First we need to import our Name field to the plaque.
Click on the button to the far right of the menu to insert the field.
With the field name selected, format the font so it matches the rest of the plaque.
When it is set up the way you want it, click the Perform Print Merge icon to merge the names with the plaques.
