Creating Web-compatible text

When you convert paragraph text to Web-compatible text, you can edit the text of the published document in an HTML editor. If you are publishing a drawing to the Web as HTML, you can change text font characteristics, including the font type, size, and style. The Web-compatible text sizes, numbered 1 through 7, correspond to particular point sizes between the 10-point and 48-point range.
The default Web font style is used automatically, unless you override it with another font. If you choose to override it, the default font is used when visitors to your Web site don’t have the same font installed on their computers. The bold, italic, and underline text styles are also available. You can apply uniform fills, but not outlines, to Webcompatible text.
Any non-Web-compatible text in your drawing is converted to bitmaps when you
publish your drawing to the World Wide Web as HTML.

To make text Web-compatible


To change paragraph text to Web-compatible text


Select the paragraph text.
Click Text > Make text Web compatible.

To make new text Web-compatible

Click Tools>Options. In the list of
categories, double-click Workspace, Text, and click Paragraph. Enable the Make all new paragraph text frames Web compatible check box.


Ensure that the Web-compatible text does not intersect or overlap other
objects or extend beyond the boundaries of the drawing page; otherwise the
text will be converted to a bitmap, and it will lose its Internet properties.
Artistic text cannot be converted to Web-compatible text and is always treated
as a bitmap. However, you can convert it to paragraph text and then make it
Web compatible.


Working with bookmarks and hyperlinks

CorelDRAW lets you create bookmarks and hyperlinks in your Web document. You can apply these to rollovers, bitmaps, and other objects.


To create an internal link in an HTML file, you can assign a bookmark to text or to an object. You can then assign a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) to an object that links to the bookmark. The object containing a URL has a hotspot, an area that activates a hyperlink when clicked in a browser.


Within a document, hyperlinks connect to any object that has been assigned a
bookmark, or the hyperlink can connect to any document on the World Wide Web by using that document’s URL. You can also set a hotspot that follows the outline of the object, or fills the object’s bounding box.
CorelDRAW applies a crosshatch pattern to an object containing a hyperlink. You can change the color of the crosshatch pattern as well as its background fill. After you create hyperlinks, you can display and verify them.

To assign a bookmark

1 Right-click an object, and click Properties.
2 Click the Internet tab .
3 Choose Bookmark from the Behavior list box.

2 On the Internet toolbar, enable the Show hotspots button .
All objects to which you’ve assigned URLs display in the crosshatch and background hotspot colors.

To verify links in a Web document

1 Click Window > Dockers > Link manager.
2 In the list, verify that all URL links display a green check mark.
3 Click the Refresh button to verify any broken links.

You can also verify a single link in the Link manager by right-clicking it and
clicking Verify link.
If you want to test a link by opening a URL in a Web browser, right-click the
object, and click Jump to hyperlink in browser.
