    Default Corel draw Spiral

    Okay, dim question of the week.

    I need to get a particular spiral in Corel draw. I've sussed how to get a spiral (you click on the button with a spiral, I've read the manual) but I want the spiral to get smaller in the centre (duh) and the lines to get thinner.

    Anyone manage that?

    not a Coral Draw expert but to make the spiral smaller in the middle (I presume you mean the space between lines to get smaller) you need to make the spiral logarithmic.

    See here. http://www.webreference.com/graphics/corel101/4/8.html

    Dunno if that helps at all.

    BTW, why are you so angry all the time? lol

    Thanks Alan, that was a great help, but what I also want is for the black line (the pen drawing the spiral, so to say) to start off thick, and get thinner as it nears the centre.

    BTW I'm not always in a bad mood, so either bügger off or just answer the bloody question.

    Spiral followed by Pinch?

    Pinch? Nope, doesn't get the effect I'm after ie: starting with a thick line, getting thinner.

    Ok.. try spiral then rotate a few degrees and spiral again. Fill alternate gaps with the line color.
