How to measure curve line size in CorelDraw + Video

If you are working with CorelDraw then you probably faced with curve measure problem. In this tutorial you will see how you can resolve this problem.

Sometimes I faced with a problem where I must measure drawing. If drawing is a rectangle or simple vector object we can calculate the linear size. But if we have something like in the image below? How can we measure the linear size of line?

Problem is that in CoreDraw no any function to solve this problem. But one good thing in CorelDraw is – if no functionality in standard software we can solve our problem with Macros.

Macros in CorelDraw can be written in two different ways, with Macro manager and with VBA (Visual Basic for Applications). Simple actions can be recorded with Macro Manager. But if we something more difficult then it must be written in VBA.

Well to solve our problem we need macros. Here you can download simple macros that we will use.

Open your document in CorelDraw and from top menu open Tools > Macros > Macro Manager.

 Now, to get object curve length you need select your object and double click on GetInfo. In opened window you will see information about your object

Curve information

As you can see macros show us Area, Length and Nodes count. Area and length parameters show in document unit. Right now we get information about one single object. But if we want information about whole drawing we must combine them.

After combining double click on macros to load. You will get information about combined objects and ever single object in separate.
