Font identification with CorelDRAW Graphics Suite

The applications and features described in this tutorial require CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 or newer to be installed.

Sometimes you like the use of a font in a brochure, newsletter or other document, but it's difficult to tell which font is being used.

Of course you could search through books to find the font, but that will take a long time. There is a quicker way with CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite.

  1. Scan the document on your scanner.
  2. Open the scanned document in Corel PHOTO-PAINT®, or import it into CorelDRAW.
  3. In CorelDRAW, select the Text menu | WhatTheFont?!, and Corel CAPTURE opens with a selection command on the screen.
  4. Select an area that contains the font you would like to identify.
  5. Click or press Enter, and the MyFonts website opens after a while

The Myfonts website provides font suggestions for the selected area of your scanned document.

A handy and quick way to identify fonts.
