Some of you might use multiple versions of CorelDraw, or interact with others who do.

Let’s say you are working with X3. Wellll… you should be right? 🙂 Upgrade here…

Another artist sends you a file made in an older version. You work on their file and send it back. But, you forgot to “down-save” it to their older CorelDRAW version! The other person can’t open your file! What do you do? You have to down-save it and re-send…

For those who don’t know, you can save to older CorelDRAW versions by expanding the save dialog box, then the option appears.

It’s possible to automatically save the CorelDRAW file to it’s pre-existing version level behind the scenes. How? Assign Ctrl+S to launch the macro. Good Job, Os! Here’s the macro.
