Most of my many .CDR files convert to .pdf without any problem. However, when trying to convert two specific files all I am getting is blank pages when opening the .pdf. I assume the problem being in those two files but I do not know where tolook for it
check the layers, if the objects are outside the page (on the "desktop" layer) or on another non-printable layer, you can't export it
Make sure your artwork is on the page not on the artboard. Also if the files are longer than 200inches 5metres approx you will also get a blank page
Perfect answer, thank you. Problem solved by copying object onlyon new document and successful export to pdf
artwork doesn't have to be on the page/artboard as you have options in the pdf settings for "As defined in CorelDRAW" or "Set by the selected objects". This is the beauty of corel over illustrator - you can export "selected" and/or publish selected to pdf even if it's outside the page/artboard.
Oh wait, CD12, hmm not sure about if that option was available then.
