    Run Corel Draw. Click “File” then “Open…” Navigate to the drawing and click it. The picture loads.

    Open the object manager docker if it is not already open. Click “Tools” then “Object manager.” The object manager docker opens, showing all the objects that make up the image.

  3. 3

    Observe the list of object. These might include: “Curve,” “Group of 6 Objects,” “Mesh Fill” and others. The objects at the top of the list are the ones that are furthest back in the image.

    Look for an object called “Background.” Click it to select it. Press the Delete key. The object disappears. Note however that the background might not be called “Background.”

    Select the item at the top of the list if there is no object called “Background.” Press the Delete key. The object disappears. Click “Edit” then “Undo Delete” to bring the deleted object back if it is not the object you want to delete. Proceed in like manner until you have found and deleted the object or objects you wish to remove.

  6. 6

    Click “File” then “Save As…” Name the file. Save it somewhere where you can easily find it again.
