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 do have a copy of CD3. I could probably load it onto a PC and open the file for you if you emailed it to me if you are desperate!
Note to developers::::::
There should be real consideration for creating at the least a LEGACY IMPORT FILTER allowing for new versions to read ALL previous ones.
I too have 15 year old files from when I fell in love with Corel, fortunately I had converted them to version 3 back in '94.
It would be devastating to loose years of endeared artwork.
