How to Install Macros

DOWNLOAD this 3.6 MB ZIP FILE which includes a macro which allows you to add page numbers to your CorelDRAW document. There’s a movie in the .zip file showing you how to install the macro, and then how to launch it in 2 convenient (and different) ways:

  1. Using a Toolbar Icon
  2. Using a Shortcut Key

Here’s how to set up Icon to launch macros:

Many macros now self-install. Double-click the installer file in the .zip file that you’ve downloaded. That’s it…

If you look inside the ZIP file you’ve downloaded and see a file with a .gms extension, you have a “Loose GMS”.


For  Windows 7/8/10:

Copy that GMS file (not the whole downloaded zip file) into the User GMS folder;

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Corel\YOUR CORELDRAW VERSION\GMS


For  Windows Vista:

Copy that GMS file (not the whole downloaded zip file) into the User folder;

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Corel\YOUR CORELDRAW VERSION\User Draw\GMS


Windows XP:

Copy gms files into this folder:

C:\Program Files\Corel\YOUR CORELDRAW VERSION\Draw\GMS


You may need to change the permission for the regular GMS folder. You may need to unhide folders or temporarily disable UAC.
