Illustrator CS6 to CorelDraw 11 best workflow
by Katya Austin on Oct 4, 2012 at 6:51:11 pm
My clients' printer cannot use PDF files i created for print using CS6, they asked me to convert files into something they can open with CorelDraw 11.
I know CorelDraw supports .EPS, WMF and EMF formats, I have .EPS output module in Illustrator, but i also have multiple gradients, vector transparencies and raster transparencies in the project and not sure how well it will be preserved if downconverted so much. Also i don't have a possibility to preview it in CorelDraw 11, even if i could find the program, i believe it's not compatible with Windows 7.
Project is meant to be mass-printed on plastic wrap.
All info i got on the print house is that it's in China - my clients would not give me direct contact info for some reason or another.
If anyone can share their workflow for situations like this, i would very much appreciate it.

Once people start talking about Corel, just know that you are in a battle of the ages... and they lost, BTW, IMHO. You are working with people that hate you because you're an 'Illustrator snob'. This is my experience with Corel people.
Just export EPS as version 10, TIFF 8-bit color, post script level 3. You should be good.
