I am having an issue that I cannot for the life of me work out. I design all my content in Illustrator CS3 but I need to use CorelDRAW X5 in order to create the screens for my screen print setup. When I design circles, especially when they are compound paths, in CS3 and import or copy/paste into CDX5, the circles look fine in normal or enhanced view. I noticed, however, that the circles looked like polygons when I was screen printing. When I checked in CDX5, zooming in on the circle in draft view, I could see polygons. As you can see in this Snipping Tool screenshot:
The same image taken in Illustrator looks fine:
Anyone have any ideas how to fix this issue? Obviously, I need the circles to be circles in CDX5 - these segmented polygons will not work!
You should design in Corel it's more fun :-P Kidding.
I have CD 2018, and wasn't able to get the same result out of illustrator cc. Have you tried saving a copy as an EPS or PDF? Or perhaps saving back to illustrator 8.
I have tried saving it in several formats - eps, svg, pdf and different back versions of Illustrator - all with the same result. Even copying it from the open Illustrator and pasting it into CDX5 with the Paste Special | Enhanced Metafile result in the polygonal circle.
I actually thought about designing in CD but with years of working with Adobe products and using Adobe products in my other business endeavors I'm just too invested in the format to change now.
Also - further testing shows this only happens with compound objects. Plain circles and curves don't seem to have the problem.
