What is a CMX file?
A CMX file is an image created by a Corel drawing or image editing program, such as CorelDRAW. It could previously be imported into other Corel programs, such as Corel Presentations. CMX files contain image data and metadata that describes the image.
Corel created the CMX format to serve as a proprietary image interchange format, which could be used to transfer images from any Corel program to another. For example, you could previously save an image as a CMX file in CorelDRAW and then import that image into Corel Presentations, for use on a slide.
However, many Corel programs no longer support the CMX format. For example, you cannot import a CMX file into current versions of Corel Presentations, WordPerfect, or PaintShop Pro.
NOTE: Different versions of Corel programs save CMX files in slightly different formats. Some programs allow you to save CMX files in both the current and legacy CMX formats.
How to open a CMX file
