>I checked these "symbol" fonts both in the CorelDraw 5 Clip Art volume and
in CorelDraw 5 itself. The three bullet fonts are NOT TT fonts. (By contrast
"animals1" and "animals2" are TT fonts and, if I was sufficiently mad I
could be using them now as my screen fonts. The bullet files are installed
but they are not described as TT files and they do NOT appear in font lists.)<
Don't know about CD6, but I just checked my CD3 installation. The BULLET1, 2, 3
fonts were in Corel's proprietary WFN format, accessed through CD as "symbols"
rather than "text."
Only thing I could suggest is that if you want to use them for text bullets,
you can use CD to create a TT font using those symbols ... Normally, I'm
somewhat of a CD bigot, but just this time, I think there are better
alternatives than creating your own font (unless CD6 makes that task easier
