CorelDRAW: Export to HTML

We can ensure that our CorelDRAW objects and files publish to an HTML successfully through setting document components to be the HTML compatible. We can check the preflight issues, and settings we want.  We can publish any document to HTML. The HTML resulting images and code could be applied within the HTML authoring software to create a webpage or website.

This chapter includes the following essential topics:

  • Setting preferences to export pictures to HTML
  • Making web-compatible text
  • Verifying and previewing files
  • Export to HTML

Setting preferences to export pictures to HTML

We can set the preferences to export pictures that are destined to be represented over the web. We can define the layout options, like the position and size of an image white space.

We can also publish our document as any single image, through which the program makes the image map. The image map can be defined as a hypergraphic, which includes hotspots link for the distinct URLs such as, images, locations, and pages when we view HTML document along with any browser.

Note: Large picture maps may result in slow downloads because of the slow internet connection.

Making web-compatible text

If we convert any paragraph text into web-compatible text, we can format the published document’s text inside an HTML editor. We can modify the characteristics of text font, including font style, font, size, and font type, at the time we are exporting any text to HTML.

Automatically, the default style of web font is applied unless we override it along with other fonts. If we select for overriding it, the default font style will be applied if visitors to our website do not have a similar font style installed over their systems. The underline, italic, and bold text styles can also be available. We can use uniform fills, however not outlines, for web-compatible text.

A text, i.e., non-web compatible inside our drawing is transformed into bitmaps if we publish our drawing to the WWW (World Wide Web) as HTML.

To create web-compatible text

  • Select the Pick tool, choose a paragraph frame. Press Text > Make text web compatible to modify the paragraph text into web-compatible text.
