NewDeal Hot Tip 1905
Exporting a NewWrite File as a Graphic
Is there a way to export a NewWrite file as a graphic for use with
another software package?
For black and white IMAGES, you could print to file with the
appropriate printer driver and then convert the file to a
graphic format with a fax software. For a color document, you
could print to a PostScript file and then import the PostScript
file into a graphics program that can interpret it, such as the
newer versions of CorelDraw.
Another approach is to copy and paste the text into NewDraw and
then export it as a graphic of your choice. Results depend on
how complex the NewWrite file is. The limit of text regions in
NewDraw is about 2500 characters.
How do I keep it from dropping to a 72dpi image on export?
- Make sure handles are set to 3500 in Preferences.
- In NewDraw, Select and Group everything you want to export
and proportionally scale it to 416.666%. You'll find a custom
Scale dialog box in the Transform menu: Transform, Scale, Custom Scale.
Enter 416.666 in both directions. Don't worry about it staying on
the page, just select everything you want to export.
- Export it in the format that you want, using Selected Objects
in the Export dialog box.
- When you import it to the other software package, if it is
oversized, reduce it proportionally to 24% to get it back to normal
Why use the 416.666 multiplier?
NewDeal exports at 72dpi (screen resolution). So you have to do some
arithmetic to get other resolutions. In this case, 300 [divided by]
72 [percentage] = 416.666.
