CorelDRAW: Exporting and importing files

Our application facilitates filters that transform files from a single format to other formats if we export or import files.

This chapter includes the following essential topics:

  • Exporting files
  • Importing files

Importing files

We can import many files created inside some other applications. We can import the Adobe PDF (Portable Document Formats), AI (Adobe Illustrator), or JPEG. We can import any file and also place it within an application window (active) as the object. We can center and resize any file as we import. This imported file becomes an active file's part. We can also import the bitmaps as the linked images (externally). If we import the linked bitmaps, various edits to the external (original) file are updated inside that imported file automatically.

We can apply settings in the code page if we have imported any file from the old version to ensure that notes, keywords, and object names saved with a file are shown accurately.

To import the file into the active drawing

1. Press File > Import.
