How do I separate the layers of a PDF exported from Illustrator in CorelDraw?

CorelDraw does NOT OPEN Illustrator ai OR Photoshop files psd & psb files. CorelDraw does let you import them, YOU can open some eps Illustrator files in CorelDraw but again you will lose most of the layers & have just a flat file. Very few programs can BE OPENED in other programs withOUT issues. Export is very careful on that, t protect their market share. Even GIMP admits to some file data lose & the other programs I have used or tested are similar in opening a Export file format.

Export PDF: All You Need to Know

One must be careful when importing to other programs, just as one should in exporting them. If you need to import Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop file you HAVE to try to open them in CorelDRAW (even if you can try Open With program to let you open other files), otherwise you WILL lose all the layers & the document. Also, if you want to open, edit, copy, modify a File in Core or Photoshop you have to do that in Adobe Illustrator/Adobe Photoshop. CorelDRAW doesn't save what you add, edit, copy, modify, delete to the file. Once you edit the file it IS a PDF file. This means any other program can read this file. (but won't edit or update the file). One could try Import, modify, copy to Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop and see how that will work. All the others will simply read the file without adding anything.
