How to Identify Fonts with CorelDRAW

How to Identify Fonts with CorelDRAW

The applications and features described in this tutorial require CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite X7.

If you like the look of a font in a brochure, newsletter or other document, it’s sometimes difficult to identify what font is being used.

Of course, you could search through books to find the font, but that will take a long time. There is a quicker way with CorelDRAW Graphics Suite.

  1. Scan the document, and  import it into CorelDRAW.
  2. In CorelDRAW, click Text >  WhatTheFont?!.
  3. Select an area that contains the font you would like to identify.
  4. Click or press Enter to go to the MyFonts website, where font suggestions are provided for the selected area of your scanned document.

      Hello Jörg,

      When you installed CorelDRAW 2019, did you do a custom or full install? What the Font is included in CorelDRAW 2019, but if you did a custom install it is possible this feature was not included during setup. We would suggest running a repair install set to Full, to make sure you get What the Font and any other tools that may not have been installed in the first pass.

      Hope this helps,

      Hello Sunil,

      WhatTheFont integration into CorelDRAW started in version X4, so unfortunately we do not have a plugin for CDGS X3 we can link you to.
