    We use CorelDraw at my work here, but (before I was here) we used to use Graphix Advantage, and every so often I need old artwork files from it. It is an extremely buggy program, especially since it's crowbarred onto Windows XP. And now it looks like it might be down for good. :banghead:
    So my question is this:

    Is there any software, patches, macros, shareware, etc. that will alow me to convert the old .plt files into something Corel can recognize?
    Thank you

    GA 6.0 was a long time ago but it has a file converter that is capable of batch conversions. I recall an old thread here that we discussed it with screen shots ... so you might want to search for it.

    The batch converter can process the files directly into EPS 3.0 files which Corel will then be able to open. You should expect to still have some issues with uncombined centers once you get them into Corel.

    Thank you, you have given me hope. :)
    Sadly, it is the file converter/import/export that I can't get to work. I'll keep mesing with it, and see if I can't get it back up and running.
    And then I think It's high time converted everything and retired that poor program.
