I can try to open it if it's made in X4. If it is, upload it and I'll try...

I uploaded my file. Could you try to open it?  It was made in X4.

I opened it without problems. He only asked me about font although I didn't find any font there. I resaved it so you can try to open that one...

Thanks, but I could not open it. could you please export to "dxf" format? I hope this might help...

I could open other files, so it is problem of this file.

dxf file is too big but I found what was crushing your Corel. Locked square in the middle of the page was main reason. After I unlock it, everything started to work fine (dockers, etc...)

try now open your file...

Thanks again, unfortunately it was still not opened.  There is only one different thing, I could see the thumbnail on the Explorer.

I would be very happy if there is another solution...

Yes, well I tried again. I found locked object that was invisible. There are far too many objects without reason. One line can have dozens of object. Why it is not just single line? All that can crush your file.

I don't know reason why you can't open it. I opened it every time. This time I made pdf which you can open in corel...

Here is unlocked version of your file...

Great! I could open it.   thanks. Just one thing, what did you mean many objects? I did not get you meant. 

I would like to draw the following image. This consists of many single lines. Could it be that do I have to connect together for each lines?

Of course. Draw Line for each of these objects (on pics). When you finished, you can convert them to objects and Weld them. In Outline menu (Menu Tools on the right) open Outline Pen dialog and set line thickness 0,003 (hairline isn't smallest thickness) so you could see what you're doing...

See sample file and there you'll find steps so you could make this far quicker and easier...

Ok, I understood. I made "group", but it was not combined.    Thanks!

No. If you just Combine, you still need to connect nodes. If you do not, nothing will change.

As I said, open that cdr that I uploaded and check steps. Than you'll understand process.

Ah... I totally misunderstood. I did not know "weld" tool. Is that ok to use this tool in order to connect nodes?

In addition, what does  "the creat the new objects" mean? Is it necessary?

First, you started in the wrong way. You should draw few objects on paper which will overlapping and try different tools just to see which do what. It will take you few minutes at the most. Than you'll see difference between combine, weld, trim, intersect etc... I strongly recommend that because it will help you a LOT.
