    export it as a password protected PDF or Lo-res jpeg. You can only open CDR's if you have Corel.

    Does your customer also have CorelDraw?
    If not, export it as an EPS if you are trying to send a vector or a jpg if you are sending a proof for the customer to look at.

    File>export or
    File>publish to pdf or
    File>publish to web

    Whatever you do get a deposit or your client might shop your design all over town.

    Let me be an ******* here because it is Friday and I need to vent.

    Seemingly, there is no file transfer problem whatsoever. So, those of us who may have insight into NET and Web transfer protocols wasted our time viewing this thread.

    As I see it, there was a complete failure to communicate as to the FORMAT the client could use to view a file.

    Did anyone ask????

    Obviously, the client does not have Corel Draw. Even if they did it is possible the wrong file version was used making the work unviewable. Again, a failure to communicate at the most basic level.

    Options are limited. Send the file as a raster graphic (as stated) which is viewable in any picture viewer or send it as an EPS (with header) and tell the client to use something like Ifran Viewer which will open an EPS with a header.

    A Corel user not knowing the difference between or how to use 'save as' and 'export'...hmmm. Did they buy it yesterday?

    They walk among us and they vote.....scary.

    Sorry for being such a butthead...but it is Friday after a grueling week of dealing with political campaigns.
