CorelDRAW x5 basics: the viewing modes (3) - the Normal viewing mode

As I've said in the previous post, Enhanced is the best viewing mode and is the default setting in CorelDRAW. If you have an old computer or a computer with a weak video card, or if you have hundreds of objects and effects on a page, you might have to use a less demanding viewing mode, namely the Normal viewing mode. As you can see in the pictures below, there are not so many differences between these two viewing modes: the anti-aliasing option isn't available in the Normal viewing mode, the PostScript fills aren't displayed and the bitmap-fills are displayed in a lower resolution.

The Anti-aliasing option is not available in the Normal viewing mode, so the curves aren't smooth in this viewing mode.

The Enhanced viewing mode displays the best possible quality for your monitor; this viewing mode displays high-resolution bitmaps, PostScript fills and anti-aliased vector graphics.

The PostScript fills aren't displayed in the Normal viewing mode. You'll notice also that the colours of the bitmap fill are not as vivid as they should be.
