Trying to convert from Corel Draw

Asked by Alaric Bond on 2012-03-20

Hi
New to Inkscape but been using Corel Draw 8 for many many years. Am trying to import old CDR files to Inkscape. Graphics come out fine, but I cannot get any of the text to appear.

Just report a bug about CDR importer's limited functionality, provide easy sample files and cross your fingers, maybe somebody will pick it up.
Or you could go hand-deep into the code and help yourself.

Oh, you could use LibreOffice Draw to import CDR and export to PDF, SVG or something.
