Open/Save Dialog Extenders for Corel Apps
« on: January 22, 2006, 11:47:35 AM »
The several utilities reviewed on DonationCoder to extend the Open/Save dialog cannot adjust the *size* of this window in the applications of Corel Graphics Suite 11, e.g. Draw and Photo-Paint.

Anyone aware of such a utility that does support the non-standard Open/Save dialog in these programs?


Many thanks - Hans Peter

file-ex has a way of being trained to handle nonstandard dialogs; they even mention corel dialogs:

Corel applications (Word Perfect, Ventura, DRAW, etc.)
Most versions of Corel applications don't use the "common" file dialogs, but some use dialogs that look close enough to the common ones to File-Ex that they are enhanced automatically. In some cases, this doesn't work because of the minor differences, so File-Ex needs to be trained for them anyway. For simple training instructions, see the help file.

Much obliged!

Indeed, File-Ex does the job with CGS 11, and it provides extensive options for the ways in which extends the File Open/Save dialogs.

Thanks again - Hans Peter Guttmann
