CorelDRAW Barcode Wizard is something I use myself when I create Barcode for different retail products, book covers and so forth.
Barcode Wizard Generator have been with us for a while, and is available in versions CorelDRAW X5 and X6 under Edit> Insert Barcode. It creates an OLE object, which is an object, but the one most often wanted is a barcode without OLE, for various reasons.
To convert OLE object and make it a barcode with a common object – objects like curve and text, do this:
Go to Edit> Insert Barcode
Enter your ISBN number, if it is such, from there advance your way to the final ”insert/OK.”
The barcode is now placed in your document,
Now use either short cut Ctrl + C or go via the Edit (edit)> Copy (Copy)
Go back to Edit and create a Picture Metafile: Edit> Paste Special
And select the dialogue ”Picture Metafile”
Now you Bracode can easily be edited as a standard object!
I useally select all curves in the barcode to one single curve, and do the same with all the text – select text and click ctrl+Q and go to Property Bar and choose WELD.
I then keep the background object either as white – most common for easy reading by humans and scanners, or any color suitable if needed.
