Calling Web Pages / PDF export
by Tobias Hilbricht on Sunday October 14th 2012, 9:31
* In order to call web pages from within Serif DrawPlus 8 set all libraries listed in winecfg back to "builtin" after registration (for which IE 6 installation seems to be necessary, see comments above).
** In order to export paint/brush/shadow effects to PDF use cups-pdf rather than the "Export to PDF" option in Serif Draw Plus 8.
