CorelDraw 101: All About Fills

Creating Conical Fountain Fills

   

 

Create or Select Object
Fills can be applied to any closed object. Select any object with the Pick Tool (create an object if necessary). You can select multiple objects and the fill you choose will be applied to all selected objects.

 

 

 

 

 

Choose Conical Fountain Fill
Click on the Fill Tool in the Toolbox. Choose the second icon to open the Fountain Fill window. Choose Conical in the Type drop-down selection box.

 

 

 

 

 

Choose Colors
Choose Two Color in the Color Blend section of the Fountain Fill window. (See Custom Fountain Fill tutorial for the Custom setting.) Click on the From button to choose the first color. Choose from the preset selection, or click on Others to access full CorelDraw color selection. Click on the To button to choose your second color in the same way. The sample in the upper right corner of the window previews your colors as you choose them.

 

 

 

 

 

Set Fountain Fill Midpoint
Click and drag on the Midpoint selector in the Color Blend section of the Fountain Fill Dialog Box. This setting determines where the blending of the two colors occurs. A lower number begins the color blend at a point closer to the first color. You can see your results in the sample preview in the upper right corner of the window.

 

 

 

 

 

Choose Conical Fill Center
Click on the preview sample to change the position of the center of the fill, or set Center Offset numerically in the Center Offset section of the window. A negative number moves the horizontal center to the left and the vertical center down. A positive value moves the horizontal center to the right and the vertical center up. You can view changes in the preview window.

 

 

 

 

 

Set Conical Fill Angle
Choose a value or click on the value selector to choose an angle of rotation for the conical fill. The up arrows move the angle in a counterclockwise direction, and the down arrows move the angle in a clockwise direction.
