I have seen many short videos of people selling small macros for CorelDraw and here I have found that a dedicated Corel user has put plenty of effort in showing us to start from scratch to build such macros.

I just have to say, thanks you very much for the time you have put on these video tutorial.

I am just an average user of Corel Draw since I saw it for the first time in version 3 when the installation was a mere bunch of diskettes.

Thanks again.

How in the world do you add the bold and italics function as a command button? I tried but im clearly missing something.
