7 users found this article helpful

Whether you need to move, size, create, or align objects and text in your project, you can accomplish the task at hand with precision by using the rulers available in CorelDRAW. The rulers consist of a vertical bar and a horizontal bar. Both bars are marked off in units and are displayed by default in the upper-left corner of the drawing window.

When you move the pointer in the drawing window, the rulers find the pointer's position in relation to their origin. The ruler origin is the point on the drawing page that corresponds to the points marked by zero on both rulers. By default, the ruler origin is located at the lower-left corner of the drawing page. The pointer's position is displayed on the status bar, which is useful when you need to use precision in dragging an object to a new position.
