Has there been any new features in CorelDraw that would allow batch conversion of CDR files to PDF files?We are still looking at converting around 15k CDR files into PDF files and would like to also be able to embed fonts into the PDF file to avoid future missing font errors.Most of our CDR files are fairly simple without any speciall effects like bitmap blurs, transparencies or anything like that.
We need to be able to open these files in Illustrator and not be presented with constant errors or incorrect colors etc....
Most, if not all of our CDR files are created using Pantone Spot Colors and some greyscale Black/White colors as well as Registration Mark color.Is there a newer macro, working macro or new type of software that will consistently be able to do this? The older convert macros seem to crash or produce inconsistent results.
be aware that unless YOUR FILES ARE EXTREMELY SIMPLE, this is a mine field filled with Bouncing Bettys.
I agree with David. Another thing to consider would be how that many files are organized. Our working files are in folders by client/business name, then by year etc. When you batch convert that structure may be "out the window". Your files may get scrambled. Ideally the batch convert would create the pdf within the same directory and with the same name but....
Better have a backup before running anything to go overnight
Not only that but you can't edit type in a file with embedded fonts unless you have the fonts installed.
