File Extension DRW

File type: DESIGNER Drawing File

About the DRW file type:

Invalid file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your Windows PC. It is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other slowdown issues.

The drawing file created by the Corel Designer (formerly Micrografx Designer) used the DRW file extension by default. This supported application is a drawing program commonly associated with technical drawings and deployed in the fields of construction, engineering, and similar industries. The version 9 was the last to be produced by Micrografx prior to its acquisition by Corel which named the next release as the Corel Designer 10. Under Corel, the application maintained its reputation for the delivery of premier solutions for the creation of detailed technical graphics. The application supported by the DRW file extension can implement the creation, management, plotting, sharing, and reuse of technical diagrams, schematics, and illustrations. It makes sure that there is a seamless foundation for file sharing within the implementation of the technical workflow. The application assists in the formulation of building blocks for everyday products like cellular phones, cars, airplanes, and telecommunication networks. The current version of this program is the 14.1.0.195 or Corel X4.

Despite the introduction of a more technically advanced version of the product, a large number of users still adhere to the version 9 standards primarily because the newer releases of the product are founded on the modified CorelDraw software rather than the original application. The effectiveness of the DRW file extension supported DESIGNER was upheld by CorelDRAW when the two applications virtually ruled the vector graphics world of the IT industry. DESIGNER took care of the technical drawing aspects while CorelDRAW focused on the graphic design department. When Corel took over the DESIGNER application, the difference with the CorelDRAW program became blurred and made the distinction almost non-existent. There are actually two factors that will identify to the user that DESIGNER is being used. The first indicator is that the cursor constantly provides the user with feedbacks for the underlying objects including the snapping to the path. The second has to do with the toolbox where DESIGNER features a two-icon wide layout with alternatives displayed at the bottom instead of being fly-outs.
