Convert CDR to AI

Can I convert .cdr files to .ai format.

How to convert cdr to ai file

Converting CorelDRAW Image Files directly to Adobe Illustrator Artwork (.cdr to .ai conversion) is quite easy if you have access to both programs, CorelDRAW and Adobe Illustrator. Thus you can simply import your .cdr file to Adobe Illustrator, and then export it as an .ai file.


It is important to know how the .cdr was exported. Should you need to work with layers, go to 'Tools', then 'Object Manager', and create as many layers as you need. Each object will imported to one layer as per your request.

Should you not have access to either one of those two programs, try some third-party options, like for example the UniConverter.

However, please keep in mind that both .cdr and .ai file types are proprietary formats, which means that third-party tools might not support every version of those formats.
