Original CDR file to import to libreoffice and correctly rendered in Corel 12

We were greatly surprised to find the CDR importer in the DRAW component of LibreOffice. We threw it a file, and found that it was not correctly drawn but quite near to the expected (good) result.

It seems the filter does not know about reversed text in CDR imports, as all text in reversed (180º) position is not correctly parsed. Justification is also missing in the middle textes both in normal and reversed text.

There's also an incorrect sizing in a very small text portion, don't know why this is, as others seem quite correctly sized.

It's been a very good surprise to find that filter, having seen the progress you have done we send you this three files in case you continue the work, specifically in the text parsing:

We attach the original CDR file (We open it with Corel 12). We have also two PDF files generated with Corel 12 and LibreOffice 4.3.5.2. Both PDF seem visually exact to the window view on each program, so those can be considered a good snapshot of the program view. Corel 12 rendering is correct, and LibreOffice one has all the contents, but with missing reverse text info (180º), justification missing in other texts, and incorrect size in another text. I don't know how to attach them to this bug report as it seems I amb only allowed to attach only one. I'll try again later.

Keep up with this good job, congratulations !!!

PDF file export is as good as the window view in DRAW in LibreOffice

We attach it again as the lastest attached version was in plain text.
