VBA - CorelDraw X4

VBA - CorelDraw X4

Hi All,

I'm new to Coreldraw but having been writing VBA macros in office for a long time. I was given a project to help automate some tasks within the graphics dept. i basically have 2 approaches.

Approach 1: Copy shapes or objects from a current file and paste into new file - current approach I'm taking.

Approach 2: Creat the shapes or objects from scratch - no luck, when recording the macro I get a lot of recording of this command is not supported.

In terms of Approach 1 - i've written the following code but get an error on the copy line.


Sub copyhubshape()
Dim doc As Document
Set doc = ActiveDocument
Dim docn As Document
Set docn = CreateDocument
Dim shr As Shape
Set shr = doc.ActivePage.SelectShapesAtPoint(2.001, 7.268, True)

End Sub

When it process the "activeselection.copy" line in vb, I get an error or unexpected error occurred while executing method coVGShape::copy message.

Any help would be much appreciated.
