For adding objects along a curve, I believe the best way is to use the custom brush feature is mentioned above. Corel should have a good explanation of how to do this, but you are looking to make a custom spray brush. The spray brush has nice controls for spacing and aligning the objects. You may have to tinker with it a little bit, but it is a nice time-saving tool.

You can create a Custom Brush-stroke to do this. Just remember that when creating a custom brush stoke, select 'Object Sprayer' instead of a regular brush. In the object sprayer mode, the objects do not stretch. They can be scaled and distance between objects can be adjusted. You can even add multiple objects to the brush (for ex: color and size variants).

i have one tip how you can duplicate object by the curve "path"

it is a trick.

use the blend tool for that.

1. make a 1 copy of your object

2. blend the same objects

3. set number of steps (how many copies you want or need) in blend tool menu

3. Add the draw path by icon "path properties" in blend tool menu

that is all.

i hope it will be helpfully. enjoy

My main area of continuous expertise with CorelDraw involves setting press advertisements and I have rarely used it to produce complex drawings. However as director of a small company I have amassed a good deal of background knowledge of computers, various printers and networks over the years. When it comes to problem-solving, I have a long history of having nobody to ask but myself and, lately, the internet!
