Opening PDF files with CorelDraw

Yes! CorelDraw has the “open PDF file” option, but don’t be excited too early yet. CorelDraw has the worst compatibility with PDF and you might end up finding an error message when attempting to open a PDF file.

The problem may be caused by the compression methods.

Solution: open the PDF file with Adobe Acrobat pro and choose “Save As.” Select “Save as PDF (Optimized) and then click “Settings” on the right. In the “Compression” Drop down menu, pick “keep the current Compression Method ” or something like that.
