Hiya guys,

I'm in a wee bit of a pickle and I hope someone here can help me. Does anyone know of a tool that'll convert .cdr (vector graphic) file into .ai? I can't tell you which version of CorelDraw it's created in, only I can't open it and it's dated 2007, however some other versions of CorelDraw import fine!! So I'm at a lost.

FYI: I'm using Illustrator CS5 and it's just giving me a pop-up box telling it can't open the file! Annoying. :(

The only OS X app I know that handles CDR:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/uniconvertor/

Wish that Graphic Converter did. I use Parallels for Corel, sadly. The last Mac version of Corel Draw was PPC, v.11.

This looks interesting ... I sometimes have this issue, but haven't found a solution.

I can't figure out how to use it ... any advice?

Cheers

UniConverter is a command line tool. There is no graphical version or frontend for the app, but one could probably setup an AppleScript or Automator process for it.

Ah, then I'm doomed...

Cheers anyway :)

Have a look at this link On-line File Converter (http://www.filespazz.com/) or anything from this Google search page. (http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&safe=active&q=convert+cdr+to+ai+online&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8)

I seem to recall this issue coming up a while ago, and an on-line service was the answer.
