Walt & Le at Level One reported the Corel/P-Maker problem:
We recently migrated from Mac
to PC and are having problems with Corel graphics printed from
PageMaker. When we move graphic images from CorelDraw 5.0 to
Pagemaker 5.0, the fonts look as though a third grader painted them
with a screwdriver.
I had a similar problem with Micrografx Designer and P-Maker. The only way I
found to get clear text was to convert the text to curves in the graphics
program and then export as a .wmf graphic. After that, it placed in P-maker and
printed just fine even with the "output may not appear as shown" nonsense.
