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? Oct 9, 2010 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.

  • 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.

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.
