Most objects that are added to a drawing are not curve objects, with the exception of spirals, freehand lines, and Bézier lines. Therefore, if you want to customize the shape of an object or text object, it is recommended that you convert it to a curve object.
How to convert an object or a text object to a curve object:
1. Create an object or text in CorelDraw. For instruction purposes, Text Tool has been used.
2. Using the Pick Tool, select the Text.
3. Go to Arrange » Convert to Curves.
Or, you can just right click on the text while it is selected and choose Convert to Curves.
