Additional Service Offering

Migration support for InterCAP products

CorelDRAW Technical Suite derives some of its technical illustration features from Mondello and ActiveCGM Author (formerly InterCAP). Optimized for Windows 64-bit with state-of-the-art technology, Corel offers to Mondello NT licensed customers a Professional Services option that makes it possible for this suite to import Mondello files (*.dwg). Mondello file conversion allows the reuse of drawings contained within these files and creates access to support for current industry standards. Corel has refined this conversion tool, making it possible to import special file attributes and metadata thanks to its extended compatibility. ActiveCGM files can be opened in Corel DESIGNER directly without the need for any additional migration utility.
