I have a word (.docx) file containing Arabic (right to left of course) text. Is there any way to export it to CorelDRAW (.cdr) format while retaining the ability to edit text?

Are you sure you don't want to be using some sort of DTP app instead? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 9 '10 at 13:55
Actually, the doc file is really old, that I need to convert to cdr and edit, I'm not starting from scratch here. – Nimbuz Oct 9 '10 at 13:59
How big is the document? If it's only a page or so then it might be worth just doing a cut a paste job and re-laying it out in Corel Draw. – Linker3000 Oct 9 '10 at 15:19
Couple hundred pages :P – Nimbuz Oct 9 '10 at 17:04
Even I am looking for such an option! – Shyam Oct 31 '10 at 9:46

Just Print to PDF (PDF re Direct v2), then import the PDF into CorelDraw. I guess layout will still be preserve in Coreldraw with this option.
