From Adobe Illustrator to CorelDRAW

Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW have many similarities, which makes it easy to move from one graphics application to the other. Although they share the most basic drawing and design capabilities, Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW are distinguished by some differences in both terminology and tools. Understanding these differences lets you make a quick transition to CorelDRAW.

Adobe Illustrator (AI) technical notes

Importing an AI file
  • Corel programs provide full support for all AI file formats up to and including Adobe Illustrator CS. For files saved in Adobe Illustrator CS or higher, text can be imported as text or curves if the files are PDF-compatible. If a file is not PDF-compatible, text is not imported.

  • Corel programs cannot import AI files containing bitmaps linked as EPS files.

  • Adobe Illustrator graphics are imported into the program as a group of objects. Click Arrange | Ungroup to manipulate objects in the imported graphic. If you open an AI file instead of importing it, you do not need to ungroup objects.

  • Adobe Acrobat 6.0 files are not fully supported.

Exporting an AI file
  • During export conversion, objects can become complex, making it difficult to edit them in other drawing programs or in CorelDRAW if you reimport them. To avoid this problem, keep a copy of the image in CorelDRAW (CDR) format, and use CorelDRAW for all editing.

  • If you create a file that will be printed in other programs, such as Adobe PageMaker, export it using the Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) filter, not the Adobe Illustrator (AI) filter. The Encapsulated PostScript filter supports more drawing effects than the Adobe Illustrator filter does and yields better results overall.

  • Most linear and radial fountain fills are preserved. Conical and square fountain fills are exported as a series of filled bands, an effect similar to that achieved by blending. You can set the number of bands by clicking Tools  Options. In the Workspace list of categories, click Display, and type a number in the Preview fountain steps box. The maximum number of bands supported is 256.

  • To accurately reproduce calligraphic outlines, corner styles, and line caps, click Tools Options. In the Workspace list of categories, double-click Text, and enable the Calligraphic text check box in the Clipboard area. The outlines are exported as a group of polygons that match the appearance of the outlines in the program, but add significantly to the size of the exported file.

Adobe Photoshop (PSD) technical notes

Importing a PSD file
  • Monotone, grayscale, duotone, and up to 32-bit CMYK images are supported

  • Some layer effects cannot be imported

  • Files that contain spot color channels are imported as multichannel (DeviceN) bitmaps

Exporting a PSD file
  • This format supports 1-bit black-and-white and up to 32-bit CMYK color images

  • Layers are supported

Comparing terminology

The terms and concepts in Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW differ for some features. Many terms have similar meanings but are referred to by different names. Adobe Illustrator terms are listed below with their CorelDRAW equivalents.

Comparing tools

The following table list Adobe Illustrator tools and the corresponding CorelDRAW tools. many of the tools create the same result but operate slightly differently.
