Can't import AI files exported by CorelDraw X3

Recommended Posts



I received a technical drawing, that was exported as an AI file from CorelDraw X3. The file opens perfectly with Illustrator CS6, but is shown as a blank page with AD.


The same drawing, exported as EPS from CorelDraw, opens perfectly in AD.


Unfortunately, I cannot attach the file, being an ongoing project I'm not authorized to spread.

Hi Paolo,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Affinity Designer is only able to import Ai files that contain a PDF stream (files saved with Create PDF Compatible File checked when saving an AI file in Illustrator). The file exported as AI by CorelDraw probably doesn't include it so you aren't able to import anything.
