FVM out of Framemaker can be used for Exporting single pages of a native
document. This method works well with 'drawing' type elements.
I am unfamilar with the other Import File Formats that Corel Draw supports.
If you provide a listing of these, we can check them against Framemaker,v5.5.6
and I will post this back to the TECHWR readers.
