Anyone who have used CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT up until version X6 have probably at least once used the nifty docker called Scrapbook. I LOVED the Scrapbook – and then came Corel CONNECT. I remember when Corel CONNECT made its entrance for version X5. And if you are using CorelDRAW Graphic Suite X6 you can still find and use the Scrapbook via Tools > Customizing > Commands. And then write in the Binocular icon searching for Scrapbook. Then drag it to the property bar and click OK.
With X7 this wonderful docker is no longer present. But if you are used to Scrapbook you really dont have to feel to sad because Corel CONNECT which is not only a Stand alone program, is very much so a DOCKER. So if you have either version X5, X6 and now X7 you simply go to Windows > Docker > Corel CONNECT and it will open up as a docker. And it really does look ver similar. And with added functions. Just give it a go. If you loved Corel Scrapbook then you will start to love Corel CONNECT as well.
In other words for me personally it is nothing I really miss from Scrapbook – part from its name – but I miss functions I would love to be added to Corel CONNECT. With each version of COnnect X5, X6 and now X7 features have been added. But me being a unpatiant user, I feel things could move on faster in that department, But I use Corel CONNECT Docker with the same easy really as I did with Scrapbook Docker.
Corel CONNECT works in great combo with the Tray Docker so the features compared with the scrapbook are many indeed.
Now, for sentimentality reasons I feel Corel could have let Scrapbook still be available in X7, but that’s my personal feel. I can somewhat understand that Corel remove oldies when new is so much more elaborated and more useful with added features.
