      Hello Piotr,

      PowerTRACE tools are built into CorelDRAW 2020, and include several different options for tracing. These can be accessed from the Bitmap menu under Bitmaps > Outline Trace.

      Hello Ruthvik,

      Unfortunately CorelDRAW X8 is no longer a supported product, and our technicians would be unable to assist with this. We would suggest taking a look at the Knowledgebase, where we keep the solutions to many previously resolved issues, or the User Forums to see if anyone in the community has had a similar problem and resolved it.
