    Athene,
    What I like about Corel Draw Suite is you can take Nicks wall and grab a piece of it from one of its
    shaping tools.

    Thank you very much, Dennis, you're brilliant!

    Edit: Just tried it out, and it's not quite what I want...the holes are too big...What I meant is: a tile like this:



    And then, when used as a pattern, it's like this:


    And I don't know how to do it with Nick's wallpaper I tried, but I can't get the holes quite right

    Hi Nick,

    Yes, that's the kind of effect I'm trying to get at - thanks for the great help
