Drawing calligraphic, pressure-sensitive, and preset lines CorelDRAW lets you simulate the effect of a calligraphic pen when you draw lines.

You can control the thickness of a calligraphic line by changing the angle of the line you draw in relation to the calligraphic angle you choose. For example, when the line you draw is perpendicular to the calligraphic angle, the line is at the maximum thickness specified by the pen width. Lines drawn at the calligraphic angle, however, have little or no thickness.
