First to make it active it is installed
1. Click the File Types button (found in Import, Export, Save, and Save As
2. Choose the correct category and filter from the Available File Types box.
3. Click the Add button.
If it wasn't in the list of available filters, re-run setup.
(Maybe it isn't present in the Select Edition, but I think it is).
I don't think you can run the 16-bit filter software from v5 wit v7.

I have a very specific problem with the export filters in CorelDraw
4.0B. I'm writing a program that reads vector graphics files (for my
research), so I'm exporting CorelDraw files as both HPGL and CGM files
for use by my program.
Here's the catch--CorelDraw exports arcs and circles not as arcs or
circles, but as polylines and polygons. For example, when exporting a
circle to a CGM file, CorelDraw doesn't use the CGM circle command,
but writes the command for a N-sided polygon (where N is some large
number > 50). This makes the resulting file much harder to read in,
since I have to read in the polylines, figure out that it is a circle,
and the compute the parameters from that. It also makes reading the
exported file in much slower (since there are so many more graphical
elements in the file).
Has anyone else run into this bug? Is it fixed in one of the later
versions of CorelDraw? I called technical support, but all they could
do was mention some possible "bug fixes" in the filters, and send me
the upgrade patches for version 4.0C (i.e they didn't know if this
specific problem has been fixed in the upgrade).
I'd appreciate any help anyone could offer on this.
