so we need overprint fill / outline.
This problem is not related Overprints. And I think your customer do not know Registration Color. Because he/she did not use it when neccessary. Please look at the bottom of the artwork. Date and job info. There is objects for each color over and over.

Color Styles are very big problem for DRAW. But Draw X5 have good solution. If you open the file with X5 and save again with X5 then file will be good. And you can not wait minutes for to open the file.

If you can not open the file with X5 I think this is known problem. And I think Corel Dev Team will be fix it with the first service pack.

If possible, upload the file on some free servers like yousendit. BTW it seems that the file contains loads of colorstyles and/or views.

I could open the file in X5. It took a longer time to open because of the corruption. There were loads of Colorstyles and views saved with the file. After I removed these, the file size also has drastically reduced. The size of downloaded file was over 1 mb and now the file is just 120 kb with same objects.

IMO the artwork created could have been created in a better manner. Unnecessary use of powerclips, overprint fills could have been avoided. With such unnecessary steps you add complexity to the file resulting in longer time to open or save, undesired results while printing etc.

All these files I get from my customers and I can not tell them how to create a file with a better manner. The files are used to make films for screen printing, so we need overprint fill / outline.

What should I do so I can open these files with coreldraw x5 easily?
And how to remove colorstyles and views from a file? if I was able to open it.

Thank you very much for your help

I tried to open those files using faster computers, and those files can be opened even if a bit long. After the files are stored with the format of the X5, the files can be opened on my computer quickly.

Thank you very much for your help
