What is a DS4 file?
A DS4 file is an image created by Micrografx Designer 4 or 4.1. It most likely contains a technical drawing or designed graphic, such as a logo or promotional image. The image a DS4 file contains may include text, imported images, and drawn objects.
Micrografx Designer was a vector-based graphics program available for Windows. After competitor Corel purchased Microgafx, they rebranded the program to Corel DESIGNER. Corel DESIGNER is now part of the CorelDRAW Technical Suite.
Engineers and graphic designers used Micrografx Designer to create technical drawings and business-related graphics. In versions 4 and 4.1, Designer saved these images as DS4 files. Before version 4, Designer saved images as .DRW files. In versions 6 to 9, Designer saved images as .DSF files.
NOTE: Current versions of Corel DESIGNER save images as .DES files.
How to open a DS4 file
You can still open a DS4 file in Corel DESIGNER, which is part of the CorelDRAW Technical Suite. Note, however, that some of your file's formatting may not be preserved.
To open a DS4 file in Corel DESIGNER, select File → Import. Then, navigate to and open your DS4 file.
