File Converter

March 28, 2011

Sometimes it is the thing right in front of our face that we forget to see. That is often the case with some of the great macros supplied with CorelDRAW. One I have been really guilty of overlooking is the File Converter. It has been in the box for many versions now and yet I rarely use it. Lately I’ve used it more and I can really appreciate its power.

In short, you can batch convert files from one format to another. That could be turning CDR files into another format or other files into CDR files. Maybe it is ten files, maybe a thousand. All if you have to do is select Tools | Macro | Run Macro (or look in X5’s Macro Manager) for the File Converter macro. Launch it and explore all of the great things it can do.
