I will assume that you mean an outline on a piece of text or object using two different colors? Say the text fill is yellow and the outline is red, one way to do it is to convert the outline to an object under the arrange menu. Go to print and select "separations" when you are at the general menu, and click on color separations, click only the red box so that it will only print red. Go back to your design and now you will be able to assign another outline to your yellow text/fill. Add maybe a 2-4 point outline, keeping it the same yellow color. If the red outline that you converted to an object is thick, you can use an outline about 4 pts., if it is thin, maybe 1 1 pt. outline is best, you have to determine how much you want/need to trap based on your printing methods and conditions. There are other ways to achieve the same result, but if you are just starting to learn coreldraw, this will get you moving in the rifght direction-Good Luck
