  • fix CorelDraw file

    Hi! Can someone help me to fix a corrupted coreldraw file? I was working on a file of 159+ MB file when the power suddenly went off and I couldn't open the file when the power was back. Maybe someone have come across a situation like this? Thanks

      I just encountered this problem yesterday. Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do. You'll have to recreate everything. Tried rebooting the computer and also repairing Coreldraw to no avail.

        Hi Ccolbert! try these steps
        1. rename the file to ".zip "
        2. open the zip-file with Winzip or WinRar (these programs has a repair-function for zip)
        3. try to repair the file
        4. then extract the riffdata.cdr from content-folder of zip-file and open this file in CorelDRAW

        Edit: Link removed because it didn't work

          Thank you so much for your input. What you said about Joomla templates basically dictating the look and feel of the site is basically the reason I've held so long to my current site. I have not found...

          Reply to Price of Foil vs. Varnish for business cards?
          Keep in mind the cost of the tooling the dye is a one time cost. The next lot of cards wont include the tooling cost.
          StudioMonkey is also correct of the cost vs. your volume. 100 cards may run...

          Joomla is my CMS of choice. For that matter, I'm working on some template modifications for a Joomla site this morning.
