I wish to open CorelDraw 8 files in CD 2018. The fonts/text in the files are gibberish. However, by: Selecting text with mouse/Text/Encode/Other encoding/changing current encoding from 1256 (ANSI Arabic) to 1255 (ANSI Hebrew) ... the fonts are 75% okay.
Instead of selecting changing each text box separately and changing it from 1256 (ANSI Arabic) to 1255 (ANSI Hebrew), can one change the current (default) text encoding permanently?
Also, 1255 (ANSI Hebrew) doesn't seem to be the right encoding for Corel Draw 8 (not X8) only 75% okay.
Maybe you can try change code page when opening file
Mek, thank you for the suggestion.
When opening the files, I changed the code page to 1255 (ANSI Hebrew). All of the paragraph text boxes changed from gibberish to 75% Hebrew and 25 % gibberish, but I couldn't change the font of the text to a different one.
When I changed the encoding on each text box separately, I was able to change the font.
It seems the original coding is 1255 (ANSI Hebrew).
