SVG files from Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw

Are there any Corel and Adobe Illustrator users that could make a simple test file for me?

I am looking for something simple like a square and circle. The outline of one should be red and the other blue. The fill on both the circle and square should be black.

I am looking for a file made with Adobe Illustrator and the same thing made with Corel Draw. I would like the page size to be adjusted to fit the shapes, if possible, and the dimensions of the page size. A screen shot of what the design looks like in Illustrator/Corel would also be helpful.

Here is a sample test file I made in Inkscape.

Here is the Coreldraw info using CD X8.

Here is the coreldraw file

Let me know if you need anything else in CD.

Thanks for doing that Ned. I still need an SVG of the file you created exported from Corel.

Great, Thanks.

The intent here was to determine if I could make SVG files from CorelDraw and Illustrator work with K40 Whisperer without passing them through Inkscape (which people say they need to do.) The file from @NedMan works straight from Corel Draw so maybe it is SVG files from older versions of Corel Draw that have issues.

Not surprising. I got into CD because of corellaser and the earlier version of CD, I had initially, had trouble handling up to date file types.

Maybe working around the things that auto-abort like the no-units means does not load, when really it should just default to mm if no units are specified. Or the scale factor must be X and Y equal. Then it should load just about everything.

Only major issue I saw anywhere was the lack of classing. (See: https://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/images/paths/cubic02.svg ) which is one of the example code elements, since the elements have their properties applied via classes it doesn’t apply them at all. The polyline elements are absent and the curves fill, and the empty rectangle is filled with black. If CD assigns those properties via css classes that’d make it fail.

Trying to save files in Inkscape as svg etc isn’t allowing me to open them in Coreldraw . Copy and pasting yields best results but edges of graphics come out choppy and crooked without anything close to as clean of a look that are originally in Inkscape.

If you just want a program for making vectors, then Inkscape will probably fill that role. If you wanted to do graphic design work, then it would probably make sense to bite the bullet and get the Coreldraw . I have a XP-Pen Artist 12 Pro screen drawing tablet to use with Corel Draw for node editing and drawing new art.

You may already have what you need since this is an older post, but I’m happy to help provide illustrator files.

Yes, I have what I needed but I will look at your file to see if there are differences.

Thanks,

Are you saving as “Inkscape SVG” or “Plain SVG”?

I just generated a basic shape in inkscape and saved it as an Inkscape svg and as a plain svg. Didn’t have any problem importing them into CD.

What version of CD are you using? Can you provide an example file?
