I have a couple of 15-year-old CDR files that I need to edit/update, but CorelDraw 12 won't open them -- just gives me an error message saying that they were created with CorelDraw version 1 or 2, and it can't open them. Does anyone know a way I can update the format of these files so that I can edit them with recent versions of CorelDraw? Before you ask, I no longer have any version of CorelDraw older than version 12.
I needed to open CDR file today for an old logo I create in the early 90's in version 3 or 5 - and was unable to OPEN it in ANY way until, I downloaded Inkscape. I was able to import it and save it as a SVG file and was able to open it in Version 19 and save it. It did lose some detail but nothing that couldn't be fixed easily. Hope this helps!
Thanks for trying to help, but the project I was working on when I started this chain ended 15 years ago. Unfortunately, Corel apparently still doesn't care. My requests for help have fallen on deaf ears...
