Corel Draw conversion - Macromedia Freehand

When I open Corel files in Freehand, only the graphics will show (no text). Is this normal? Also, in the drawings that we do, we need to dimension our objects & draw them in an architectural scale (like in Autocad, wich Corel does). Is there a plugin for Freehand that can do that? Thanks.

    Default Corel Draw conversion

    When I open Corel files in Freehand, only the graphics will show (no text).
    Is this normal?

    objects & draw them in an architectural scale (like in Autocad, wich Corel does).

    Is there a plugin for Freehand that can do that?

    Under View > Page Rulers > Edit, you can set up custom measurements for
    scale drawings.

    You can enter x and y dimensions of groups in the object inspector.

    Michael Slomski has written a very handy 'Angle Xtra' for FH. You can find a
    link on Ian Kelleigh's web site here:

    Sorry, I don't know about your text problem. What versions of FH and
    CorelDraw are you using? What platform?
