How to Convert CorelDRAW Shows to PowerPointby Nick Davis
CorelDRAW, a vector-based graphic design program, lets you create not only logos and other graphics, but also Microsoft PowerPoint-like presentations. Once the CorelDRAW show files are created, you can print them, email them and even save them as Portable Document Format (PDF) files. If you're sending a CorelDRAW show file to someone who has PowerPoint but not CorelDRAW, you have to convert the CorelDRAW show first, then send it. The conversion process is done through CorelDRAW; no third-party application is needed.
Click "File," then "Open." Navigate to the directory containing the CorelDRAW show file you would like to convert. Double-click on the file's name to open it.
Edit the CorelDRAW file, if needed.
Click "File" and go to "Save As." Navigate to a directory to save the converted file in.
Click on the down arrow next to the wording "File Type." Select "PowerPoint 95 Presentation."
Enter a name for the CorelDRAW show file or keep the file name present in the "File Name" box.
Click "Save." The CorelDRAW show file will convert automatically to the PowerPoint format.
- Once converted, the CorelDRAW show file can be opened with Microsoft PowerPoint 95 or any higher version.
- Some fidelity and design elements---system-specific colors, animation effects, gradients and text on a path---may be lost when the conversion takes place.
