Until now I couldn't open CorelDRAW files on my iMac. As every designer knows CorelDRAW is discontinued after version 11. Now We have developed a simple application that opens CorelDRAW files on macOS. Opening CorelDRAW format files on macOS is possible now. When you install CDRViewer on your macOS, you will be able to open CDR files.

CDRViewer is free for use software. CDR file format stands for CorelDRAW and this extension is proprietary format used by CorelDRAW software. CDR format is not recognized by other image editing programs and to save to other image formats it needs to be opened in CorelDRAW and then exported in other format. This can be done only on Windows. With CDRViewer there is no need to another operating system and another machine to display CDR file formats.

1. CDRViewer is free for use software.

2. CDRViewer runs on your macOS.

3. Fast file loading and zooming function.

4. All previously opened CDR files are archived for faster access for later use.

5. PrintLab Studio (Pro version of CDRViewer) can export your CDR (CorelDRAW) files to Vector PDF file format. (This is a Pro Feature).

6. Standalone software, CorelDraw, Adobe Acrobat and Reader NOT required!

Simple and useful productive tool for designers.

PrintLab Studio is Pro Version of CDRViewer. This version offers more features like export opened CDR file to SVG and PDF file formats. If you have any ideas or features, feel free to drop a message regarding your opinions by using our contact us page.

Ratings and Reviews

Try CDRViewer 2


I was using this app to open my old cdr files, now I use CDRViewer 2 and it is better than this version.

Not so much


The program wll open a cdr file. It WILL NOT open the file in anything close to what the file is suppose to look like. Not worth the time to download, install and delete.

Developer Response

We don't claim that our app can open all car files, some files may not open correctly. We constantly improving our app. CDRViewer 2 much more improved version of the first version. Please try second version from the App Store.

Very Useful


Unlike others who say there is no real use for this software, it’s incredibly useful for me. I switched from a PC and have hundreds of CDR files that I seldom need to access, but from time to time I have to find one for an old customer. This app makes that process much easier. The only issue I see is that sometimes the embedded fonts don’t render properly, but for me, just trying to find a file this is perfect.
