Can anyone tell me why effects to text done in Illustrator are not opening properly on CorelDraw C6?

  • How did you get it from Illustrator to Corel Draw? – Joonas Nov 28 '16 at 7:33

CorelDRAW will not support certain Illustrator-dependent effects. For instance, if you apply a gradient to an object outline it will be lost when opened in CorelDRAW. A lot of other effects won't be maintained when opened in Corel unless they are flattened/expanded. Some effects may even have to be rasterized, and that can create other issues. Out of effects that are maintained, some may have to be adjusted. CorelDRAW and Adobe Illustrator handle things like gradient fills differently and don't understand how to portray gradients from their rival application accurately. Some nice fill that was created in CorelDRAW may have to be tweaked or completely rebuilt when opened in Illustrator.

    Hi Pramod, it looks like you just copied most of this content from this Adobe forums page. Can you edit your post and give attribution to the author? Plagiarism isn't really welcomed on Stack Overflow, and it's always nice to give credit where credit is due. Good luck! – Vincent Nov 28 '16 at 11:24
