CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Print Merge NOT Recognizing Numeric Field From Excel File

Jun 1, 2012

I am having an issue with X6's print merge not recognizing a properly formatted numeric filed from my Excel spreadsheet.  My first issue was that Corel was adding a decimal point after my numbers. This was when they were still formatted as text fields.  (which i still don't understand why, since they were just TEXT fileds) 

I know that the fields need to be "numeric" fields. 

FYI i have ALREADY COMPLETED MY TASK by using an "added" numeric filed that i added IN CorelDraw and then used the "Numeric Field Options" at the bottom of the page to get my number sequence.

However, that is not my question.... my question is: How do i get corel to RECOGNIZE a numeric field AS a numeric field in the first place.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Extract All Text Into Text (XML)?

Aug 12, 2011

I work for a translation company and I've installed a Trial Copy of Corel Draw X5.

I have a 6-page document with several text areas (the Obect Manager sees them as Artistic Areas [I think]).

I'm trying to extract all the text into a text (prefferably an XML), file translate the text using Trados, then import the translated text file back into the Corel Draw Document, with the appropriate text in place of the original text.

I've tried using Extract / Merge text, but this doesn't seem to work.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 :: Text Constraints When Using Merge

Oct 2, 2012

Using x4.  I am looking to merge a list of names into a matrix and maintain text constraints.  I want all the names to fit into a certain space (ex. 1.5" long) and to maintain a certain character height (ex. .25" high).  So my output should be no longer than 1.5" and all should have .25" high characters on a single line.  I am able to setup the template and lock the fields, but during the merge everything gets messed up.  All x, y positions, text length and text height have to be manually reentered for each name.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: File Losing Text In Transmission

Jul 16, 2012


I am having an issue with CD X6. I opened a file created in X5 using the new X6 and it worked just fine. The problem is when I send the file to my image setter to image a plate, part of the text in the heading of what is to be printed is getting lost somewhere in transmission. When I view the file in the print preview in CD all the content is there, however, when I view the raster image at the rip station before imaging the plate I notice parts of the text in the heading is missing. I have attached an image of the raster file .

Now when I send the same file using X5 the image goes thru without any issues and all the content is secure. I created a new page in X6 and copied over the text that I am having trouble with and the same thing happens. I am attaching the CDX6 file with all the fonts used.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Merge To New Document - Result Is Not Text?

Jul 19, 2012

I need to make a bunch of barcode tags for a client. I know CorelDraw isn't the best tool for this, but it's what I have and this is a one-time job.

To partially automate the process, I'm trying to use print merge to make the parts of the tags that aren't barcode, but I include the text that belongs in the barcode on the page. The print merge works correctly, I get what I expect. The next step would be to cut the barcode text, choose Insert Barcode, and then paste the barcode text into the barcode dialog.

Except, when trying to paste the text intended for the barcode I discovered that I was actually copying the <var1> field--not the text. I verified this by copying the "text" from the print merge document and then pasting back into the same document--what I got from the paste was not the expected text, but <var1>.

Since the barcode type I was using does not support the "<" character, it gave me an "invalid character" error.

My attempted solution was to publish to a PDF file and then import into a new document. This worked except for some reason CorelDraw makes a new layer named, inexplicably, "Layer 1" (there's a "Layer 1" by default, why make a second layer with the same name?) BUT when the import is done the new layer is NOT chosen in Object Manager, the original "Layer 1" is. Which means, when I go to copy the text and insert the barcode it ends up UNDER the other parts of the barcode tag which are on the NEW "Layer 1".

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Dynamically Connect Text To Excel File?

Jun 21, 2011

I am building a big catalog for hundreds of products, and it would be a life savior if i could connect dynamically the (customized) text (fields) in the .cdr file to an external excel file data. For example smth like the text field "Title" to be taking its values from the column "Description" of the excel file, incrementally as each line of the excel file could represent a record.  This way also when the excel file changes, (because it will be probably like 10 more versions before it gets final), the content inside the corel draw file will change automatically as well.

Download sample corel file here :


 and sample excel file here :


How to accomplish smth like that or even faster / simpler ......

Tried in same in X3 and had the same result.

I could export the file as a .pdf and it worked just fine.

The question is, is there a maximum export size?

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 12 :: Converting CDR File To PDF Which Contains Objects / Text With Fountain Fills?

Jul 30, 2012

For some reason I am having issues converting a CDR file to PDF which contains objects/text with fountain fills.

I have looked at some previous posts detailing the same problem, have followed their remedies, i.e. "render complex fills as bitmaps" in the advanced tab in the PDF conversion pane. Despite these best efforts I am still having the problem of my black background; fixed in the "page layout" tab being corrupted, resulting in the background being the fountain fill once converted.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 11 :: Text Styles Change TrueType Font Into T1 Every Time File Opened?

I'm perfectly happy with the TrueType font (BankGothic Md BT), but all the style settings change to the T1 equivalent every time I close, and when I open the file again the T1 text does not show up. I can go through and reset all the styles, then re-apply them, but it wastes a lot of time.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Paste Path In File Dialog And File Export Presets

Sep 11, 2012

After finally getting X6 to be stable and usable I have two things I'd like to mention..

First, I've been using a 3rd party file manager called Ztree for years and one of its most wonderful capabilities is to copy paths to the clipboard which alleviates opening/saving frustrations with the typical Windoze Explorer dialogs.  Anyway, one of the first problems I noticed with X6 is that Paste no longer works in the Open Drawing dialog, while it worked just fine in X5 and as far as I can remember, all previous versions. I sure would like to get that back.

My second complaint is the File/Export routine and specifically the presets. I do a lot of exporting to PNG and JPG and use multiple presets for fixed size/print resolution image output in both file formats. During the typical export session, I essentially export multiple different drawings all of which are exactly the same size/resolution in CD and in the past (X4 and prior as I recall,) was able to just hit <Enter> when the Export dialog appeared once the preset was set to the one I needed for that session.

In X6 though (and to some degree in X5,) even though the correct preset is listed, CD doesn't appear to recognize it, i.e., the math for the size/dpi conversion doesn't take place which forces me to waste time selecting "Original" or some other preset first, waiting for CD to render the new version, and THEN selecting the conversion preset that was pre-selected when I first opened the export dialog.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Opening AI File That Have Linked Graphics

As a sub note I can't go back to the supplier of the Ai file to make any changes.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 :: Links To Graphics Are Broken When Using Help File

Oct 18, 2012

I just used the help file for the first time in ages and noticed all the links to the graphics are broken hence no diagrams etc. I tried to search out where they are usually stored and it gives some weird Address under properties. It's a vba so suppose it's a database? How do I restore the links without having to do a re-install?

As to the pen: How do you stop the annoying over-the-top predictive curve that happens past the node in the next section after a long drag to form the first curve. i.e.  you simply want to draw a straight line after dragging out a curved section previously and you get this unmanageable curve to deal with ?

CorelDRAW X5 :: Save A Print Merge File With Merge Data Field

Feb 26, 2013

Why cant I save a cdr job with all the merge fields setup so that next time I open the file I can go straight to 'merge to new document'.

So Ive set up a 10 to view raffle tickets job.  Inserted 20 numerical merge fields, positioned, resized, applied font size color alignment etc etc etc.. Takes ages.....  So then merge to a new document, works nice and I can save it fine. 

There are a hundred reasons why i may have to close the 'master' merge file before the job has been successfully printed.  It may be a repeat print job.

Any which way I really dont get why the live merge data  fields are lost on closing the file.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Big File Size

Apr 6, 2012

I receive an artwork from my customer to print a small label to cover some wrong printing.

The label is 110x160mm and the file size is 15MB.

So I intersect a small part of 4x40mm for the replacement label.When I save it as a new file, the filesize is 10MB!

I wonder why the small piece of artwork is so big, while it only contains a 4x40mm bitmap of 300dpi and the rest are vector.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Conversion Of CDR File

Nov 9, 2012

I'm writing an application in C++ that loads vector images from a source directory and convert them in bmp or other non vectorial format in the destination directory. I need to load CDR file also, but unfortunatly I can't find a documantation regarding the proprietary CDR file format.

Of course, these informations aren't published by Corel that maintain the secret of the format. But my question is: does Corel sell some SDK that provides some functions, callable directly from the source code written in c++, that permits the conversion of the file?

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 12 :: How To Open EPS File

Nov 5, 2013

Q When I import an EPS file into CorelDRAW, and print to a non-PostScript printer, the output appears pixelated and unclear. Why?

A An EPS file is a Postscript (PS) file and meant to be printed to a PostScript printer. When printed to a non-PostScript printer, it will only print the file header which is a low resolution preview of the actual file. If you wish to print the actual contents of the EPS file to a non-PostScript printer, import the file it into CorelDRAW using the PostScript Interpreted (PS, PRN, EPS) filter.So, apparently it can be done, but when I try to import this file into my Coreldraw, there is no option to import with that type of filter that I can see. Is this something that is missing in v12? If v12 wont do it, is there any other way to import this file without it coming in all pixellated? Or is there another way to convert the file into a format such as .plt?

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Importing DXF File

Dec 3, 2011

I am new to Corel Draw and am slowly teaching myself.  I created a drawing in Corel Draw and then exported it to DXF.  I then opened them in a CAD application to actually cut the image out in a water jet.  The size of the drawing was not modified, only the corners were fillet (because I could not figure it out in Corel Draw at that time).  When I imported it back into COrel Draw to fill it with my image, the size of the drawing was about a 1/2 " bigger (width and height) than it was when I exported it.  This is the only place where the size is different.
