Hi.  I'm having 2 seperate import problems in Coreldraw X5 in Windows 7.  The first one, and the one I need to fix immediatly is, every time I try to import a dfx file, the program crashes.   The other which is less important right now is, a lot of times when I try to import PDF's I get an error message that says the file is corrupt.  Any help please, especially on the dfx problem.

Thanks,

Dom

I’ve not heard of the DFX format. Do you mean DXF? If so, it is likely the files are simply too complex for CorelDRAW to handle. A couple of months ago I covered some possibilities in a blog post at http://graphics-unleashed.unleash.com/2012/04/importing-autocad-files-into-coreldraw.html
 
The PDF files are most likely not corrupt. You simply get this message because they are in a newer flavor of PDF than what is supported in your version of CorelDRAW. This is one of the reasons that users need to upgrade on a regular basis. You may want to ask whoever created the PDF files what they used to create them.

Foster,

Yes, I did mean DXF.  Sorry

The file is a drawing of the structure of a sign so it probably is very complex.

I'm going to try your blog after I send this.

I will make sure I check what the pdf files were created in from now on.

 

Thank you !

Dom
