As you know CorelDraw import filter is getting better and better with every release. This blog entry: http://fridrich.blogspot.com/2012/11/libreoffice-coreldraw-import-filter.html 

suggests that starting with LO 3.6.3 the filter is stable and mature enough to add a possibility to associate Corel files with LO 4, as you can associate MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Visio files to be opened with LO. 

Making LO default viewer for Corel files would be appreciated because not many users have Corel Suite installed and LO Draw allows to view such files.

It would be another step forward for LO development. Thanks

Sure, sounds like this is possible.

High - Quite easy to do, I don't see a reason not to do this as users can decide if they want to set corel documents to LibO or not - for instance if they are uncomfortable with the filter, no need to set it.

Thanks for the suggestion

I've just installed 4.0 RC2. The requested enhancement is still missing. I think that it would be a nice feature for the new LO release. Any chance to see this in LO 4.0?

Changing priority back to 'medium' since the number of duplicates is lower than 5
