Useful tips for getting started with CAD applications in general, presented in CorelCAD on Windows.
The first tutorial in this series covers basic 2D drawing tools for lines, rectangles, circles, ellipses and arcs:
Further tutorial videos in that Playlist cover these topics:
Selecting graphical objects (entities) in CorelCAD
See how you can use mouse and keyboard to efficiently select the objects you want to edit next. Also learn how to use object properties' based selections to quickly identify and select specific objects from complex .DWG files.

Snap, Grid and Ortho mode and object snap and object tracking - efficient methods for precise drafting
See how Entity Snap (ESnap - also known as "Object Snap") tools can help you drawing objects precisely with the mouse using various object snap points such as center, end points, perpendicular or tangent points and intersections. And learn how the "Entity Tracking" (ETrack - also known as Object tracking or OTrack) further helps by displaying guidelines dynamically, using the object snap points on screen.
