Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A CDR file is a drawing (or vector image) created with CorelDRAW, a vector illustration and page layout program. It contains a document that contains text, lines, shapes, images, colors, and effects. CDR files are used to create various types of documents such as letters, brochures, tabloids, envelopes, post cards, web pages, and web banners.

    .CDR is a vector graphics file, that opens in CorelDraw software which is not free. If you CorelDraw on your system, then you can easily open it.

    Thanks. We have one licence for CorelDraw on the Desktop of a Sales guy,  but a few users want to be able to view the drawings on the server, without bothering the sales guy. Alternatively we ask him to save the file of interest as a pdf. LibreDraw sort of opens it, but corrupts the text. Thanks anyway.

    Just for this purpose, you can try CDR Viewer (a small tool & free). You can download/ install from here, https://cdrviewer.org/

    Thanks Subhendu Sen, The download from cdrviewer.org offers to open up Ver7 drawings, and we have Ver8. I did use their online converter and it seems to be amongst the best of the free options, although it didn't handle text well. Some odd additions. I might keep close to the guy who has the CorelDraw licence and ask him to save our drawings as PDFs when I need them.

    Be careful when converting online. If you want to keep your data private then don't go for that. Also this is a security threat. However, you can go for reaConverter Lite edition (free to use) for converting cdr files into .jpg format first. Then you can easily convert the converted JPG files to PDF format. This is here, https://www.reaconverter.com/download/

    Tried to add a cdr to it (lite) but it said unsupported format. I can always try the trial std version, and maybe even buy it.

    If your CDR files are complex like so many pictures/ texts & other special characters, you may go for paid version. But be cautious, before buy check with its demo version in presence of the vendor's representatives. If it is satisfied, you may go for buy. Also check their return policy or customization criteria.
