Exporting and saving files in nonnative file formats

If you want to save a file in a nonnative format, you must use the Export or Save As command to convert it to that file format. Both the Export and Save As Drawing dialog boxes let you choose the drive and folder where you wish to store your file. In CorelDRAW, use the Save As command to access the vector filters. Use the Export command to access the bitmap filters, the RTF format, and word-processing file formats, in addition to the vector filters. The Export dialog box lets you choose to export files as compressed or uncompressed for file formats that support this feature.

Save As files dialog box options

The Save As Drawing dialog box gives you options such as saving files in previous CorelDRAW versions or with different thumbnail formats. You also can control no white space, special characters, choose to embed fonts using TrueDoc(tm), or embed an ICC profile.

Enabling the Embed Fonts Using TrueDoc(tm) check box ensures that the fonts in a drawing can be viewed on a system that does not have those fonts installed on it.

Enabling the No White Space, Special Characters check box allows you to replace white space in filenames with an underscore. Other special characters will be replaced by characters suitable for Web-based filenames.

Enabling the Embed ICC Profile check box allows you to save an embedded Internal Color Consortium (.ICC) profile as part of your file. The ICC has defined a standard format for color profiles. Corel's color management system uses these ICC profiles. By embedding an ICC profile to the file, it ensures color consistency when transporting files between applications. Corel is able to support embedded ICC profiles in CPT, CDR, TIFF, JPEG, PICT, and EPS file formats.

Exporting files dialog box options

The Export dialog box contains options that let you suppress filter dialog and choose to export files as compressed or uncompressed. It also lets you use the Export command to access the bitmap filters, the RTF format, and word-processing file formats, in addition to the vector filters. You can also embed an ICC profile, and control no white space, special characters in your filename.

Enabling the Suppress Filter Dialog check box allows you to bypass the dialog box that contains import options for the selected filter. Instead, the Filter manager uses the default settings.

Enabling the No White Space, Special Characters check box allows you to replace white space in filenames with an underscore. Other special characters will be replaced by characters suitable for web based file names.

Enabling the Embed ICC Profile check box allows you to save a embedded Internal Color Consortium (.ICC) profile as part of your file. The ICC has defined a standard format for color profiles. Corel's color management system uses these ICC profiles. By embedding an ICC profile to the file, it ensures color consistency when transporting files between applications. Corel is able to support embedded ICC profiles in CPT, CDR, TIFF, JPEG, PICT, and EPS file formats.

Choosing Compression type lets you choose to export files as compressed or uncompressed for file formats that support this feature.
