Is there any way to convert 'AI' and 'EPS' to corel draw format (.cdr)?

My client want to rework from their existing AI and EPS to corel draw.

.eps files should merely open in Draw. – Scott May 19 '13 at 11:41

As Scott mentions, you can open .eps files from Corel Draw.

You just need to re-save them in CD as .cdr.

There's diferent ways to do it, you can:

  1. Create a press ready PDF and import it to corel. (make sure to convert the text to outsides and unchek the "embed" option)

  2. This 2nd method will depend on what verions you have of both softwares, but in CorelDraw you can easily go to "Import" and select "PS Interpreted" and select the AI file. Note that you might need to google what are the versions your current version of corel can open, and if is slower, then save your Illustrator in a lower version until it opens.

Hope it helps :)

In corel Draw X6 or higher versions you can easily import *.ai files. Just go to File menu and Import then choose *.ai in the file format drop down list.

As simple as 1, 2, 3.

Good luck !!!

You can Import EPS / AI file directly in Corel Draw. There are less possibilities of export to CDR from AI / PSD.
