The Corel Corporation's CorelDRAW graphics suite gives you the ability to create and edit vector and bitmap images, manipulate screen captures and generate page layouts. It includes a Trim feature that allows you to place objects on top of one another and then remove their overlapping sections, leaving behind a unique cutout shape. Trimming a line in this way becomes a quick task once you know how to select the proper menus and commands.
