Copy and Paste Content into CorelDRAW

If you have a Word document or another file type, you may be wondering the best way to get that content into Corel

On occasion, I have received files created in Microsoft Word, Excel, or Publisher. Beginning with versions X5, Corel is able to open a Publisher file, though it is often opened with unexpected results (same with some Power Point files). The other MS file types (.doc, .docx, .xls, etc.) are best opened in the appropriate MS program, then the content selected and copied to the clipboard. When pasted into Corel, it is usually best to choose Edit>Paste Special and then choose the option best suited to your needs, rather than using the simple Paste option.
