Some products of CorelDRAW will not include the “Automation support”. This feature is required to be able to install the Summa plugin.


When the “Automation support” feature is not available in the CorelDraw than the Summa plugin cannot be installed.

For example CorelDRAW Essentials 2020, CORELDRAW Standard 2020 do not support this “Automation support” feature and the plugin will not work in those versions of CorelDRAW. 

Below you see a printscreen of the CorelDRAW website. There it states under the "Key Features & Tools (Highlights)" that "Automation support (VSTA, VBA), Macro Manager" is only available in the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2020.

Please check the CorelDraw website to verify if your CorelDRAW Product does support this key feature.


When using CorelDraw not including the Automation support than you can perform the plugin functions manually. Remark that this way of working is of cause not efficient and leaves more space for making mistakes.


Plugin functions:

- Add OPOS markers around the design (to enable later contour cutting a printed OPOS job)

- Export a design to Summa Winplot or Summa GoSign (for cutters) 


Tips and tricks to set manually OPOS markers you will find in the document attached.
