Now that we have a basic understanding of the differences between CMYK and CMY, let us get things ready.
When it comes to the setup of the main project, it is pretty straight forward with one important step.

Hey, guys. In today's video, we're gonna be looking at setting up our project for adjusting the fake K or black uh, printing, and this will be within coral draw. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. We make short and easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Otherwise, if we head into the programme So I've started Roy, and, uh, just keep in mind this process will vary depending on the version you have and so forth. But, um, in general it should be pretty similar. I'm currently still using the 2018 version. Um, but yeah, if you have another version, the process should be similar. But we are also covering two different methods. So if you don't or not able to follow along with the other one, then maybe one of the other ones will work for you. So now, in order to, um, get started, I'm just gonna close over here the welcome screen and then start a new document. I I can either go file new click on this little new icon here so in cause it's a bit small. And then, um so we could file a new then we also have under file. We've got this little new icon, or what we can do is click a little new, Plus here, create a new documents. So I'm gonna do that. Click that and then we have some options. Now, by default, I'm gonna leave everything as is This will obviously depend on your actual project. But there's one thing I'm gonna be changing, and that is the primary colour mode. So if I go down here prime colour mode by default, it is an r GB. So I'm just gonna set this to C m Y K. So our actual project is C M Y K um ready? And then you can obviously set your rendering resolution D p I if we're doing more artwork, But for now, I'm just gonna be doing it or leaving it for the tutorial sake on 72 I click OK, and then we have our base document now, Next up, what we're gonna do is for this tutorial. I'm going to be using two different panels. So our object properties and our object manager so if I go here on the right, we can currently see we have those two open. We've got our object properties and object manager. Now, if you for some reason don't have, um the right ones open or even this panel I'll quickly show you how to do that. It's gonna close this up. So let's say we don't have those panels. Then what we can do is we simply go to our top window, um, top down menu. Then we wanna go down till we find Dockers. Then we'll see here. We've got right on top Object Properties and Object Manager. You can also see the quick shortcut for that is alt enter? So that's a handy one to know. So I'm gonna start by putting my object properties. You will say it opens it up for us, and then what we can do. We can actually go and click here on the bottom of that one. There's a little plus. We can click that, and then we can get the same basically menu. But we can check the check boxes, which other ones we want. So now if I click on this Objects manager or object manager it will automatically add that panel for us as well. So one is kind of like properties of whatever object we're busy with. And then the next one is kind of like, uh, you can say a layers panel in most odd programmes. But yeah, otherwise that is it on setting up our actual default layout. So just a quick recap. We wanna open a new document, make sure it set to C. M. Y K. And then we wanna from our Dockers add our object properties and our object manager. You can either do that by your window or you can do that by this little Plus this over here. Yeah, otherwise, before we head on to the next video. If we head here to softwaretraining.co.za. You guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover.
